Through our relationship with the Post Office®, you can withdraw and deposit cash and check your account balance at any Post Office® in the UK. You just need your Debit Mastercard. You can also lodge cheques to your Danske Bank accounts in all Post Office® branches in Northern Ireland.
You can find the opening hours and services of your closest Post Office branch by using their Post Office branch finder . Please read the information below to make sure you bring what you need with you.
How it works
To lodge cash at a Post Office® you need your Debit Mastercard.
As a personal customer you can lodge a maximum of £1,000 cash, including £250 in coins, per day. Some Post Office® branches may have lower single deposit levels too.
There is also a rolling 180 day £5,000 limit. This means that if you’ve already lodged £5,000 in cash in the last 180 days, any further cash you try to lodge will be rejected.
You can withdraw cash paid into to your account immediately.. Although your available balance will be adjusted immediately, the entry date on your statement will be the next business day. The value date will be the same day that you made the lodgement.
Cash withdrawal and balance enquiry
You’ll need your Debit Mastercard to withdraw cash at the Post Office® or to check your balance.
You can withdraw up to a maximum of £500 per transaction, in multiples of £0.01, depending on your individual card limit and available balance.
When you withdraw cash at the Post Office®, your available balance will be adjusted immediately. The value date and entry date will be the next business day.
To lodge cheques at the Post Office® you need a pre-printed lodgement slip for your Danske Bank account and a Danske Bank Cheque Deposit envelope.
Cheque lodgements won’t be processed by the Post Office® but will be sent overnight to us for processing on the next business day. The normal cheque clearing cycle begins when we process the lodgement.
When you use the Post Office® you’ll need to lodge your cash and cheque separately.
Cheque lodgements will need to be with the Post Office® about 15 minutes before the last collection time to allow them to be included in the individual branch’s final mail collection. Please ask your local branch for times.
For business customers using the deposit services, the charges that apply are the same as if you made the lodgement at a ‘Cash Drop’ in one of our branches.
