New bank account but wrong date of birth on application.

Hi looking for some advice, I decided to change my bank to a different one and did the application online I also took out a credit card with the bank as well, everything was approved and then when I made a phone call to customer service about something they said that my year of birth was wrong and would need to go into branch with Id to get it changed to my correct one. my question is will this affect anything or cause any problems? when I did the application I accidently put 90 instead of 91 for year of birth. 

Any advice will be helpful thanks,

    It could potentially cause the accounts to be closed, or possible a CIFAS marker, thought both those scenarios are unlikely.

    But get them corrected and everything should be fine.
