eventually, on Friday, i received an email from them which refers to a letter i didn’t receive..

“We are making some important changes to your Post Office Savings Account
Dear Dr Planteria,

We recently wrote to you to let you know we have made some changes to your terms and conditions and what this will mean for your account.

Shortly after the 1st March, it will no longer be possible to deposit funds into your Post Office Savings Account using Direct Debit. Any existing Direct Debits you have set up with us will be cancelled automatically at this time.

You can still make regular deposits using internet banking or by setting up a standing order from your linked current account. All deposits to your savings account must come from the UK Bank or Building Society current account linked to your savings account.

If you would like any further help and information on these changes you can visit our dedicated webpage. Here you can access our FAQs and find video guides that will help you with how to login and update any of your details.

Thank you for saving with us.

Post Office Savings Team”

I'm in no rush and definitely had several spares that could be trimmed regardless; nevertheless the DDs all still worked this month. I'll review again next month.
