Additional Cards

How to add a trusted cardholder to your account

One of the many benefits of having a Cashplus Bank account is that you can set up a family member or close friend as a trusted additional cardholder.

Setting up an additional card can provide added support, convenience and ease for those trusted friends, family or caregivers, who may be lending a helping hand or require access to your funds. If you want to add an additional card to your account, it's is quick and easy to do so, and it comes with a range of benefits.

What’s an additional card?

An additional card is a card that is connected to your Cashplus account. During set-up, you'll give us the details for the trusted person that you want to be your additional cardholder and once confirmed, we’ll send you their Cashplus card. 

Your additional cardholder can then use this card to make purchases on your behalf. Each additional card costs £5.95 which we'll charge to your account. 

Benefits of an additional card

  • Spending with ease
    With an additional card, you don’t have to pay someone back or give them your bank details.
  • Share your Cashplus account
    Give someone an additional card and they’re able to do shopping and run errands on your behalf when required.
  • Stay in control
    Your additional cardholder won’t have access to your whole account, but they’ll have access to all funds in your account. As the primary cardholder, you can view and track spending on the additional card and have the power to turn off certain controls like gambling transactions and ATM withdrawals.

What your additional cardholder can access

Your additional cardholder can set up a login for Online Banking and the Bank App so they can activate their card and view the balance and transactions on the card, but they won’t have full access to your account. Here’s what they can do:

  • Access all funds in your account
  • View statements and transaction history for their card only
  • View and manage their card security details
  • Request their PIN, activate and block card in the App and Online Banking 

Who can you order an additional card for?

  • Trusted friends and family
  • Caregivers
  • Children (if you're a personal account holder, they must be aged 13+)
  • Employees (must be aged 18+)
