Opening your
first account

To open an account you will need to fill in an online application. You will be asked a series of questions including your name, date of birth, address, National Insurance number, and a bank sort code and account number that must be in your name to link to your new account.

There will be some documents you must read and accept - an account factsheet that will help you decide if this is the right account for you, information about how your money is protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) and terms and conditions for Beehive Money.

Once your application is complete, you will be sent a registration link. You can then set your own username and password so that you can start using your Beehive account, using login details that suit you, not us.

You will need to pay money into the account within 14 days of opening it, otherwise your account will be closed. Instructions on paying in money will be shown at the end of the application process and will also be emailed to you.

We will also write to you at the address you provided to confirm that your account has been opened.
