14.0 Disputed transactions

  1. You may be entitled to claim a refund for a transaction made with your Card where:

    1. the transaction was not authorised by you;
    2. the transaction was incorrectly executed by the Merchant and notified to us (in accordance with clause 8 (authorising transactions);
    3. the transaction did not specify the exact amount at the time of its authorisation and the amount charged by the Merchant was more than you could reasonably have expected, taking into account normal spending patterns on your Current Account or the circumstances of the transaction. (However, please note that a claim for a refund in such circumstances will not be accepted if the amount of the transaction was made known to you at least four (4) weeks before the transaction date or if the claim is made more than eight (8) weeks after being debited to your Current Account);
    4. you have an automatic refund right for up to eight (8) weeks after a direct debit transaction was made. See clause 15(g) and (h);
    5. we were notified of the unauthorised/incorrectly executed transaction within thirteen (13) months of the debit date of the transaction.

  2. If any of the above circumstances apply, you should first contact the Merchant, as this may lead to a quicker resolution of the dispute. You may also ask us to investigate the transaction or any misuse of your

  3. Current Account. Subject to the other terms of this Agreement, we will immediately process a refund of the amount of the disputed transaction. We may need more information and assistance from you to carry out such investigation.

  4. If we refund a disputed transaction to your Current Account and subsequently receive information to confirm that the transaction was authorised by you and/or correctly posted to your Current Account, we shall deduct the amount of the disputed transaction from the available balance (or, if the available balance is insufficient, require you to immediately refund the shortfall).

  5. The provisions in this Agreement giving you the right to request a refund will survive the termination of this Agreement.

15.0 SEPA direct debit consumer rights

Under the SEPA direct debit core scheme rules and SEPA regulation 260–2012 you can:

  1. Use a single account to pay a SEPA direct debit in any SEPA country;

  8. Request a refund for any unauthorised SEPA direct debit after eight (8) weeks and within thirteen (13) months from the date on which the SEPA direct debit was debited from your Current Account.

  9. You can request a recall of a settled SEPA credit transfer for a reason other than duplicate sending, technical problems resulting in erroneous SEPA Credit Transfer(s) and a fraudulently originated SEPA credit transfer. This does not guarantee a return of the funds of the initial SEPA credit transfer, as a return of funds depends on the consent of the beneficiary of the transfer.

16.0 Third party payment service providers

If you choose to give third party providers (TPPs, including PISPs and AISPs) authority to access your An Post Money Current Account online to make payments or to obtain information about balances on your Current Account and/or transactions on your Card:

  1. You must ensure that any AISP or PISP you instruct is regulated. You are responsible for providing explicit consent to any AISP or PISP.

  2. Before giving consent, you should satisfy yourself as to what degree of access you are consenting to; how it will be used; and to whom your information may be passed on to. We are also not responsible for, or a party to, any agreement that you enter into with any AISP or PISP.

  3. You should make yourself aware of any rights to withdraw authority from that third party and what process they have in place to remove access. If you no longer wish to use an AISP or PISP you should contact them directly to inform them of your decision. You should note that they may still have access to your An Post Money Current Account unless you change your login details. You can do this through our Website.

  4. Where you appoint a PISP, we shall be entitled to rely on any payment initiation instruction issued by that PISP as though it is your instruction. We will act on it as though you provided the instruction directly to us.

  5. Any consent or authority you give to a PISP or an AISP is an agreement between you and it. We will have no liability for any loss whatsoever incurred as a result of any such agreement. We are not responsible for any use of your An Post Money Current Account or information relating to your Current Account or any AISP or PISP appointed by you. Such use of your personal data shall be governed by the contract or agreement between you and that service provider.

  6. We will not be able to revoke a payment order received from you or a PISP on your behalf, unless there is agreement from us, the account holder who is to receive the payment and any other payment service providers involved in that specific transaction. This does not prejudice any rights you may have to a refund in accordance with this Agreement.

  7. If your An Post Money Current Account is a joint account, either one of the joint account holders can instruct an AISP or PISP to access your joint account details or to initiate a payment on your joint account. If we receive a request from a AISP or PISP to access your joint account or to initiate a payment on your joint account, we will respond to it as if both of you had made the request directly or had asked the AISP or PISP to make the request on behalf of each of you.

23.0 Governing law and jurisdiction

Addendum: Terms & Conditions for An Post Money Mate Accounts

The terms and conditions in this addendum (these “Terms”) apply between you and An Post where you open an An Post Money Mate Current Account (a “Youth Account”) as the parent or guardian and for the benefit of a child ("your child").

These Terms explain the specific terms and conditions for the use and operation of a Youth Account. If you are the holder of an An Post Money Current Account, these Terms are supplemental to your agreement with An Post (“your Agreement”) for your An Post Money Current Account ("your Current Account"). If there is any inconsistency or ambiguity between these Terms and your Agreement, these Terms will apply in relation to the Youth Account. However, these Terms do not vary or amend your Agreement in relation to the use of your Current Account, if you are the holder of such account.

If you do not have An Post Money Current Account, this addendum sets out the full agreement between you and An Post in relation to the Youth Account. You should note that this includes a number of terms from the An Post Money Current Account Terms and Conditions, including those specified in clause 9 of these Terms. References in these Terms to "your Agreement" should be read as including both these Terms and the An Post Money Current Account Terms and Conditions which are identified in these Terms. You must read all applicable terms carefully.

Nothing in these Terms or the Agreement creates a contract between An Post and your child, and you are fully responsible for you, and your child, complying with these Terms. Your child's use or misuse of the Youth Account or its associated Youth Account Card will be treated as if it were your own act or omission (including, for example, authorising any payment). You must read these Terms carefully. By opening or using a Youth Account, you are agreeing to these Terms.

Terminology Explained

Words and expressions defined in your Agreement shall have the same meaning in these Terms, except where we expressly state otherwise.

Youth Account Card means the An Post Money Mate Account Mastercard Debit Card issued to your child for use in connection with their Youth Account.

Jar means the functionality provided as part of the Youth Account which allows you or your child to indicate a particular balance as separate from the main balance of the Youth Account (though it remains part of the overall balance in the Youth Account for technical and legal purposes).

You, you and Your, your refer to the person opening the Youth Account.

1.0 The Youth Account

  1. The Youth Account is a current account provided for the use of your child, with a dedicated BIC and IBAN and with an associated Youth Account Card and Jars. Funds credited to the Youth Account and Jar(s) will not earn any interest. An Post keeps all money exchanged for the Youth Account in a bank account with authorised credit institutions, or in assets approved by the Central Bank of Ireland, which are separate and segregated from the assets of An Post.

  2. You may only open one individual Youth Account for each of your children. Multiple accounts for one person are not permitted. The Terms apply separately to each Youth Account which you have opened.

  3. A Youth Account is not transferable to anyone else. It may only be used by you and your child. Neither you nor your child is permitted to use the Youth Account for business or commercial purposes.

  4. The Youth Account does not provide an overdraft facility and does not extend credit.

  5. The Youth Account Card is not a credit card. The Youth Account Card remains the property of An Post and must be returned to us at our request.

  6. The Youth Account allows you to enable certain functionality and/or place controls on its use, including restrictions on how it can be used. Enabling some functions may also require setting controls via your Current Account. Details of the optional functions, controls and restrictions are available on anpost.com/currentaccount. You are responsible for setting and monitoring these functions, controls and restrictions. You can enable optional functions and set these controls and restrictions using the App.

2.0 Applying for and activating the Youth Account

  1. To apply for the Youth Account:
    1. your child must be between 7 years and 15 years 6 months of age
    2. you must be their parent or legal guardian
    3. you must have your own Current Account with An Post (unless otherwise permitted in accordance with clause 9(a), which must be a sole account and not a joint account
    4. both you and your child must be residents of the Republic of Ireland.
  2. We will ask to see evidence of who you are, your child's age and your address. We will ask for further documentary evidence in some cases and/or we may carry out checks on you and/or your child. By applying for the Youth Account you are agreeing to your information and your child's information being passed to relevant agencies for this purpose. When we perform electronic checks, personal information provided by you may be disclosed to other parties who may keep a record of that information.

  3. A credit check is not performed and neither your nor your child's credit rating will be affected.

  4. You must apply for a Youth Account digitally through the App or by any such means as may be made available to you by An Post. You will receive a welcome pack by post which includes the Youth Account Card. The welcome pack will contain instructions for you and your child. You will also receive an email confirming the opening of the Youth Account.

  5. To activate the Youth Account Card and register your child's online account, you must follow the instructions in the welcome letter and/or email. You and your child cannot use the Youth Account or Youth Account Card until this has been done.

  6. To activate the Youth Account online, your child will need to download the App to a separate device (tablet or phone) to the one you use for the App, and to follow the in-app instructions.

  7. Your child will only be able to access the Youth Account through the App, and will not have Website access to the Youth Account. Nor will your child be permitted to authorise a TPP to access the Youth Account. You will be able to see all information in relation to the Youth Account via the App on your own device.

3.0 Fees

  1. A full list of fees is available at anpost.com/currentaccount or on request at Post Offices. Details of fees which are charged directly to the Youth Account are identified at anpost.com/currentaccount. All other fees payable in respect of the Youth Account will be debited from your Current Account when due. If you do not have a Current Account, the fees will be deducted, when due, from the balance of the amount you have transferred to the App, after you have lodged funds to the Youth Account ("your App balance"). If your Current Account or your App balance is not sufficient to cover the fees when payment is due, the relevant fees will be deducted as soon as you have put your Current Account or App balance in funds. If your Current Account or App balance is not in funds, An Post reserves the right to debit any outstanding fees payable on the Youth Account from the Youth Account.

4.0 Paying money into the Youth Account

An Post reserves the right to introduce new options for funding the Youth Account and to remove existing options, as necessary. If funding options are not already covered in these Terms, you will be informed about these changes (including the applicable conditions and fees). Notice of the changes will be given in accordance with clause 17 (Changes to this agreement) of the An Post Money Current Account Terms and Conditions.

  1. Funds may be lodged into the Youth Account by you or your child.

  2. Funds can be lodged into the Youth Account:

    1. at any post office in the Republic of Ireland; or
    2. by bank transfer from your Current Account, via the App.
    3. by using Quicklodge through the App.
  3. Various limits apply to the operation of the Youth Account and Youth Account Card. These relate to the value and volume of transactions that you and your child are permitted to execute, and include daily maximum cash lodgements and withdrawals at Post Offices, including maximum amounts which may be held in a Youth Account at any time — see anpost.com/currentaccount for more information about these limits. We reserve the right to refuse to accept any transaction at our discretion.

  4. Please note that, upon receipt by us, your funds will be available for use without delay, unless you or your child have opted to have some of the funds allocated to Jar(s). Cheque lodgements will be credited after 10 working days. Please see clause 5 of these Terms (Using the Youth Account Card) for more information.

5.0 Using the Youth Account and Card

  1. The Youth Account Card can be used at any Post Office in the Republic of Ireland to lodge to, withdraw from, or check the balance on the Youth Account. The Youth Account Card is accepted worldwide wherever Mastercard is accepted. You can use the Youth Account Card at any ATM, POS or online website that displays the Mastercard®, Maestro®, and/or Cirrus® acceptance marks. An Post does not permit Youth Account Cards to be used at Merchants who have an 'MCC' code which An Post in its discretion has determined may not be appropriate for children; however, An Post is not responsible for supervising or restricting which Merchants with which your child is able to transact.

  2. You and your child will not be able to use the Youth Account Card after its expiry date. You will receive a new Youth Account Card by post in advance of any expiry date.

  3. The Youth Account Card belongs to An Post and is made available to you for the benefit of your child. An Post may at any time suspend, restrict, replace or cancel the Youth Account Card or refuse to issue or re-issue the Youth Account Card for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to the following:

    1. if we have reasonable cause to be concerned about the security of the Youth Account or Youth Account Card;
    2. if we reasonably suspect the Youth Account or Youth Account Card is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
    3. if you (or your child) break an important part of these Terms, or repeatedly break any of these Terms and fail to resolve the matter in a timely manner;
    4. if we need to do so to comply with the law; or
    5. if you or your child are not a resident in the Republic of Ireland.
  4. If we take any of the steps referred to in clause 5(c), we will inform you as soon as possible (or when we are permitted to do so) after we have taken these steps. We may ask you and your child to stop using the Youth Account Card and return it to us or destroy it. We will issue you with a replacement Youth Account Card, if after further investigations, we believe that the relevant circumstances set out in clause 5(c) no longer apply.

  5. Please note that funds allocated to Jar(s) on the Youth Account cannot be accessed for transactions at any post office, ATM, POS or for online purchases. Funds may be moved back from Jar(s) into the main Youth Account by using the App. Once the reallocation of funds is complete, the funds may be used immediately at any post office, ATMs, POS and online in the manner described in these Terms.

  6. All payments made using the Youth Account shall be in the denominated currency. If you are paying for goods and services in a different currency to the denominated currency, the amount payable shall be converted at the currency conversion rate which applies at the time your transaction is processed. In addition, a transaction charge will apply for ATM withdrawals in a currency which is not the denominated currency. Please see anpost.com/currentaccount for more information.

  7. We will deduct the value of payment transactions made with the Youth Account Card from the balance on the Youth Account as soon as the transaction is made. We will also deduct any applicable fees from your Current Account, or the App if you do not have a Current Account, as soon as they become payable by you (subject to clause 4). Please see anpost.com/currentaccount for more information.

  8. We may refuse to process or honour a transaction:

    1. if we suspect the Youth Account or Youth Account Card is being used in an unauthorised or fraudulent manner;
    2. if you have not paid enough money into the Youth Account at the relevant time to cover the amount of the transaction and any applicable fees; or
    3. if we believe that a transaction will break the law.
  9. In the case of clause 5(h)(i) above, we will inform you as soon as possible (unless it would be impractical or unlawful for us to do so). You may correct any information we hold (and/or which may have caused us to refuse a transaction) by contacting Customer Services via customerservices@anpostmoney.com or phone on 00 353 (1) 705 8000

  10. As with all payment cards, we cannot guarantee all Merchants will accept the Youth Account Card. Please note that all Merchants are required to check that your Available Balance is sufficient to cover the transaction amount.

    1. at any Post Office in the Republic of Ireland (using the Youth Account Card);
    2. on your mobile phone via the App; or

7.0 Your right to a redemption

  1. You have the right to redeem the funds in the Youth Account at any time prior to it being converted to a Converted Account.
