What can I do if my local bank branch closes down?
While the shift from in-person to mobile and online banking isn’t an issue for most people, it can be if you don’t have access to the internet.
Concerns have been raised the closure of banks will adversely impact the elderly, who might be left without a nearby branch.
But there are ways you can carry on banking if you’ve found yourself in this situation.
You can do most basic banking tasks at your local Post Office.
Plus, many banks offer a mobile banking service, which is where it brings a bus to your local area offering all the services you normally get in a physical branch.

It’s worth calling up your bank to see if it does something like this.
Meanwhile, banks sometimes use public buildings, such as village halls or libraries to offer mobile banking services.
Again, you should contact your bank to see if it runs something like this.
