You can access some banking services at Post Offices due to a tie-up between banks and the mail delivery institution.

Banks pay the Post Office to do this to offset the impact of them closing branches, although what you can do at a Post Office depends on which bank you are with.

If you are a Bank of Scotland, HSBC or Lloyds customer you can use all Post Office banking services, including withdrawing and depositing cash, checking your balance and depositing a cheque.

But if you bank with Nationwide, all you can do is withdraw cash and check your balance.

The range of services available at Post Offices is limited compared to a proper bank branch, as you cannot open a bank account, for example, or sort out issues with your account.
