    I'm not sure actually.

    The question before this asked for sort code & account number.

    I assumed roll number or reference number would be different, as if it is also a sort code & account number, that means that they've asked the exact same question 1 after another on the benefit form.

    If your mum has a Flexaccount then you dont use the roll number. I 'think' that is also the case for 'most' NW accounts which are usually quoted with an account number and sort code. As I understand it a roll number is generally used by the smaller Building Societies who ask you to pay funds to their own bank account number at a clearing bank quoting the roll number (your BSoc account number) as a reference.

    Maybe they are also finding out which type of acc your Mum has as if it were a mortgage acc it would have a roll no so if the roll/reference no is the same as acc no then it can't be a mortgage acc.. best thing is ring them up and ask i'm sure they'll be helpful

    I can answer this. As Nationwide Building Society has it's own clearing centre, it does not require roll numbers. Just the sort code and account number will suffice.
    I say it as it is - you may not like that but what would you prefer? A string of false platitudes that are no help whatsoever just to make you feel better? If my advice has helped, please press the Thanks button over here ----------------V. Cheers
