Default How to find out Nationwide's roll or reference number?

My mum is having to fill out a benefits form & one of the questions is asking about her building society's (nationwide) roll or reference number?

There's a stack of numbers on her statement, but i'm not sure how to properly decipher it.

How do you find this out other than calling them? Or is this the only way?

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
