What is a linked account?
To keep your money safe we will link all your AA savings to one UK Bank or Building Society account in your name(s).
All deposits must be made from this account. We are unable to accept deposits from any other account.
All withdrawals will be sent back to this account
You can, of course, make internal transfers between your AA savings accounts.
How do I change my linked account?
Log in and select 'Manage your details' from the menu.
From here you can change your linked account.
For your security, when you change your linked account, your new linked account will not be available for withdrawals for a short while (we'll tell you the exact date when you make the request). In the meanwhile you will be able to continue sending deposits from, and making withdrawals to, your existing linked account.
How do I pay money in?
Payments from your linked account
You will need your AA savings account number and sort code to hand.
Simply use the internet/telephone banking service of the bank/building society that you hold your linked account with and set up a payment to your AA savings account.
You can choose to make both one-off payments and set up a regular payment by standing order.
You can make internal transfers between your AA savings accounts (excluding AA ISA products) at any time.
Simply log in, choose the account you wish to make the internal transfer from and select 'Transfer between AA accounts'.
How do I make a withdrawal?
Simply log in, choose the account you wish to make the withdrawal from and select 'Withdraw to linked account'.
When will withdrawals reach my linked account?
This will depend on the amount of the withdrawal and when you ask us.
Up to £99,999.99 - if you ask to take money out before 5pm on a business day it will reach your linked account the following business day. If you ask between 5pm and midnight, it will take two business days. Please note: there is a daily limit of up to £50,000 if you make a withdrawal over the phone.
£100,000 or over - we use CHAPS for large payments. If we hear from you before 2pm on a business day it will reach you linked account on the same business day. After 2pm, it will arrive on the following business day. Please check your bank or building society accepts CHAPS payment before you ask to move £100,000 or more to your account.
How do I close my account?
Simply log in and choose the account you wish to close. Select either 'Withdraw to linked account' or 'Transfer between AA accounts' depending on whether you would like the closing balance to be sent to your linked account or another AA savings account.
Instead of entering a withdrawal amount on this page simply tick the 'Close this account' tickbox.
How do I update my personal details?
It is important we hold up-to-date and correct personal details for you.
To update them please log in and select 'Manage your details'
Can a representative manage my account for me?
We can accept an Enduring Power of Attorney or a Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney registered with the Court of Protection. This provides the authority for your representative to open and manage accounts on your behalf. We can't provide any advice about this so please contact your legal adviser. We will not normally accept any other form of third party authority.
Both the donor and representatives will be subject to our standard account opening checks. We will also need to see an original or certified copy of the Enduring Power of Attorney or Property and Financial Affairs Lasting Power of Attorney document.
For more information please call us on 0345 2660001.
