    I am told in my local Ulster Bank branch that "free" banking is now only available to those aged 68 years and over.

    It is no longer available if you keep a minimum of €3k in your account.

    uFirst customers now have to pay fees.

    When pressed the cashier didn't seem sure about the information that she had just given me and appeared to back down.

    I have received nothing in the post advising me of changes to their Terms and Conditions.

    Can anyone confirm the above?

    Ulster Bank still offer free day-to-day banking if you keep at least 3,000 EUR in your account each and every day.

    Condition-free free day-to-day banking with Ulster Bank is available to those aged 66 or over.

    Thanks Ciaran. I was specifically told in the Blackrock branch that the age was now 68 and that the minimum €3k balance only saved you the quarterly maintenance fee but not the transaction cost fee.

    I seem to get a different story from each cashier when I call to this branch.

    If anyone from Ulster Bank is reading this perhaps they might advise their staff in Blackrock.

    I suggest that you refer the Ulster Bank staff to their own website.

    The Ulster Bank website states here which states that the age requirement is 66 or above.

    The Ulster Bank website also states here that "we don't charge transactions fees".
