About Us

Description of Picture.

Our objectives

The Association has been in existence for over 60 years and during that time it has grown into an important representative body for pensioners. Its officials regularly meet with the Executive of the Bank to discuss a variety of issues.

However, its main function is at local level with some 70+ venues covering the whole country offering friendship, fellowship and support with regular meetings and functions throughout the year.

The Association is also able to secure special terms and discounts for its members and has a strong welfare rôle by providing visitors for the Bank's Visiting Scheme.

The Association liaises closely with the Bank Workers Charity which provides a free, confidential support service for pensioners who are facing challenges relating to their home, wellbeing or money.
