How do I open and manage my account?

You can apply online. You’ll need to provide your own email address and your own mobile phone number to do this. Once open, you can manage your account online. You can also give some instructions by phone. Up to £250,000 can be paid into this Online Savings Account. This limit doesn’t apply to other Marcus accounts you might hold with us, which will have their own limits.

To open an account in either sole or joint names you must be aged 18 or over and be a UK resident (including for tax purposes).

Can I withdraw money?

Yes, by logging into your account or by calling us. You can pay money to and from your Marcus account from your linked account, which must be a UK current account in your name. If you have more than one Marcus account and those accounts allow you to move money, you can also transfer money between them. If you have a joint account, your joint account holder can do the same.

There may be limits to how much you can take out of your Marcus account online, in one payment or per day.
