Customer Care Packs
We have customer care packs in all of our branches which contain items to assist in various ways. These contain:
- Pen grips
Please ask our staff if any of these could help you.
Cash Machine (ATM) services
The keypads on our ATMs have a raised dot on the number 5 as well as raised symbols (X, I, O) on the coloured Cancel, Clear and Enter buttons. We also have large, coloured, high clarity screens on our ATMs.
Talking Card Reader for Online Banking
The card reader is a small hand held device which works with your AIB (NI) Visa debit card to generate unique security codes when you are completing certain transactions on Online Banking (this service is available to personal business customers and partnerships).
If you require a talking card reader which is designed to assist visually impaired customers, simply call Phoneline Banking on 0345 793 0000† log in and choose option zero (0) and one of our Customer Service Advisers will be happy to help you. Our advisers are available between 9am and 5pm Monday to Sunday (excluding Bank Holidays).

Induction (Hearing) Loops
All of our branches have an induction loop which is portable and can be used in different areas of the branch. These improve the sound quality for customers who have hearing aids by switching to the T setting.
Mobility & Dexterity Assistance
Access to our branches
The vast majority of our branches have permanent ramped access or level access from the street. Where we have been unable to gain statutory consents for a permanent ramp, we provide temporary ramps which can be put in place at the customer’s request.
All branches have automatic or power assisted doors with disabled access push buttons.
Inside our branches we provide a lower counter position for customers who are wheelchair users or who wish to sit while we transact your business.
Our Cash Machines are set at an accessible level for all users.
Chip & Signature Cards (Personal Customers only)
For customers who have difficulty using a PIN, we can offer a Chip and Signature personal Debit and/or Credit Card.
When you buy goods in a shop, you will not have to enter your PIN on the terminal. Instead, the assistant will print a receipt for you to sign and this signature will then be compared to the signature on the back of your Card. All other transactions, such as online and mail order, will be carried out in the same way as the personal Debit or Credit Card.
For more information or to ask for a Chip and Signature personal Debit or Credit Card, please contact your branch.
