Luton Roma Trust can advise you on all financial matters, for example opening a bank account.
Every bank needs to you to provide two things before they will open a bank account for you:
- Proof of identity (a passport or national identity card that has not expired)
- Proof of address. This can be a bill that has your current address on it and is not older than 3 months.
Sometimes the letter you got stating your National Insurance Number will suffice, if it is not older than 3 months. However, you may need to open an account for gas or water in your name in order to prove your address. Contact us if you need help with that.
The bank will usually want to interview you to check that all is well.
