An Overdraft is a credit facility on your Current Account which allows you to access funds up to an agreed limit above your actual balance.
So before you move your Overdraft to permanent tsb, you’ll need to have a permanent tsb Current Account.
If you already have a Current Account in your own name, you can apply for an Overdraft on it, if it is an eligible account. Basic Payment Accounts and Teen accounts are not eligible for an Overdraft.
You can apply for permanent tsb’s award-winning Explore Account by downloading the permanent tsb app and selecting the “Current Account Application” icon and following the instructions.

An Overdraft will not move automatically to your new current account when you close your existing current account. An Overdraft is a credit product, this means you have to submit an application and permanent tsb has to assess that you have the means to repay the Overdraft.
If you have an Overdraft on your existing current account, you will need to ensure the balance that you owe, if any, is cleared before you close your account.
If you are not able to repay the balance before you close the account, you should first talk to your existing provider about the options available to you. Contact us on 0818 837 408 or 01 212 4022 to see how we can help.
