You can access the following services:

  • Lodge cash using a barcoded personalised credit slip or your Debit Card 
  • Lodge cheques* using a barcoded personalised credit slip

    *Cheque lodgement option is available at designated An Post outlets only.
    All customers that use credit books for their banking services will need to order a new barcoded credit book to use An Post Services.

  • Ulster Bank An Post services are available from 20 April 2015 on a phased basis, with full roll-out to participating outlets being completed by 29 May 2015
  • The level of service may differ at each An Post outlet as the Cheque lodgement option is available at designated An Post outlets only and is subject to different cut-off times depending on the outlet
