Why have service charges been debited from your account?
Our current accounts have been subject to charges since 1 November 2020. The monthly charge is 2 euros.
Current accounts are still free of charge for customers under 26 years of age, and for accounts held at the OP cooperative bank where the holder is an owner-customer. Please note that, if an account has several holders, it will only be free of charge if all account holders are owner-customers of the OP cooperative bank in question.
If you are not an owner-customer or under 26, a monthly service charge will be debited from your current account.
Service charges will be debited from the account retrospectively.
