3. Do I need to activate my replacement card?
You will not need to activate your replacement credit card, unless the sticker on the card asks you to do so.
4. How do I activate an additional card?
The main cardholder must activate any additional card, as the 16 digit credit card account number of the main cardholder is needed. You can activate the additional card online, by calling the number on the credit card sticker or you can pop into your local branch.

Yes, for security purposes you need to activate your credit card before you can use it.
6. Can I personalise my PIN number?
Its easy to change your PIN to a number you already know – a memorable date, for instance. You can change your PIN at most UK cash machines. Just insert your card and using the PIN we've sent you, follow the on-screen instructions.
7. I've forgotten my PIN number?
If you’ve forgotten your PIN, you can request a PIN reminder which will be sent through the post. You’ll receive your reminder by post in 3-5 working days.
Just select one of the following options:
- Log on to Internet Banking - Use our replacement cards and PINs service by selecting it from the ‘More actions’ tools.
- Use our Mobile Banking app and select the account action button ( the 3 dotted icon) for your chosen account.

Please note: for security purposes, we can't tell you what you're PIN number is over the phone.
