Supporting you through the Coronavirus outbreak

We know that recent developments around Coronavirus (COVID-19) will be concerning for lots of you and causing disruption to your daily lives.

We’re keeping a close eye on the situation and have put in place measures to support you during any personal disruption, ill health or financial difficulty arising from Coronavirus.

Service updates

We're working to ensure that we continue to provide you with the best possible service during the Coronavirus outbreak whilst safeguarding the wellbeing of our teams. There may be some disruption or changes to our services, but we will be updating this page regularly to keep you informed of any changes. 

It's taking slightly longer than usual to open Business Savings accounts due to very high application volumes. Once we’ve completed all our checks we’ll aim to open your account within 20 working days.

Our contact centres are currently experiencing a high volume of calls, but we will help you as soon as we can.

Fraud protection

Be aware that some criminals are using Coronavirus to trick people into sharing personal or financial information.

Watch out for:

  • Cold calls from criminals pretending to be from Nationwide or other respectable organisations.
  • Emails that ask you to click on a link to log in, update information, or to access important news.

Stay safe:

  • Remember that Nationwide will never ask you to move money to a safe account.
  • Do not click on links within emails – go direct to the site using the web address you know to be correct.
