I’ve forgotten my Internet Banking password, how can I reset it?

The Internet Banking site isn’t recognising my Customer ID when I try to log in?

Please try entering your Customer ID without the leading “00”, for example 12345678, not 0012345678. If you still experience issues, please call us.

Where can I find my Customer ID?

Your customer ID is a 10-digit number which uniquely identifies your relationship with Cater Allen. Your customer ID is usually your login ID for Internet Banking, although you can set up a username when you register.

You can find your Customer ID on your Welcome letter. You can request a copy of your Welcome letter by phoning us.
