Switch your current account to AIB
At AIB, we have a range of current accounts designed to meet your daily needs so that you can bank quickly and securely from anywhere with our mobile app. Freedom and flexibility to do whatever you need, whenever you want.
Once you've opened your account with AIB, here’s a step-by-step guide on getting it up and running:
Step 1: Use your Registration Number and Personal Access Code (PAC) to login to the AIB Mobile app.
Step 2: Follow the steps on screen to set up Strong Customer Authentication on the AIB Mobile app. This is an extra layer of security to confirm that it’s you that’s using your account.
Step 3: Transfer some money into your new account.
Step 4: Make sure that anyone who pays you (such as your employer) has your new AIB account details, especially your BIC and IBAN.
Step 5: Download all of your previous statements from your old bank and list all of your existing direct debits and standing orders. These could include your mortgage payments, local property tax, insurance premiums, utility bills and any other regular payments.
Step 6: For some services on Internet Banking you’ll need a Card Reader. You can order a card reader in the ‘services and settings’ tab on AIB Internet Banking.
Step 7: Set up new payees and standing orders on your new AIB account on a day when payments aren’t being made into and out of your old account. You can do this easily on AIB Internet Banking by using your Card Reader.
Step 8: On the same day, change any regular direct debits or debit card payments like gym membership or subscriptions.
Step 9: Clear your old account balance and close the old account.
You may also be interested in switching your Personal Current Account from AIB to another bank.
To do this you must get a Switching Pack from the Bank that you wish to transfer your account into and follow the steps that are outlined. This process is in line with the Central Bank of Ireland's Switching Code. Please contact your branch if you need more information.
