Ulster Bank has announced it will begin writing to customers, notifying them to choose a new account provider ahead of their withdrawal from the Irish market.
Last year the bank announced it would be ceasing operations in the Republic of Ireland.
In a statement today, Ulster Bank said it will write to customers, giving them six months’ notice to choose a new current and deposit account provider.
It follows a meeting with an advocacy group for customers, which set out how the closure process will progress and what customers should expect.
“This session will give stakeholders the opportunity to clarify and better understand Ulster Bank’s approach to customer account closures,” a spokesperson said.
“It is essential that advocates for customers who might need additional assistance are kept informed, within the bounds of competition law, so they can advocate on behalf of their members or clients, discuss concerns or challenges with us and communicate with their members or clients about the forthcoming changes that affect them.
Ulster Bank has two branches in Co Wicklow, which are located in Bray and Blessington. Both branches are expected to close.
