    Exactly. It's to do with ring-fencing. The vast majority will be unaffected, a small percentage of customers will have their sort code migrated.
    I work for a UK bank, but any comments made on this forum are solely my personal opinion. Caveat Emptor!

    Apparently the sort code will change, a new card will be issued, the account number will stay the same and payments will be automatically redirected for 36 months.

    I've had a letter over the weekend from Barclays regarding my sort code change happening between 7-8 October but the letter doesn't say what my new sort code will be.

    It's all part of them changing things to comply with recent legislation. It's legit. Once of the last things that I remember getting fed out to staff before I left.
