What is an N26 joint account?

The N26 joint account is an easy-access shared bank account for two people. It has a dedicated IBAN that you can use to manage your shared finances — set up recurring payments for shared bills like rent and utilities, and link your N26 card to make payments with your shared money.

If you already have a personal N26 account, you may open a maximum of one joint account with one other person. It only takes a few minutes and you can do it right in the N26 app.

How many people can use a joint account?

N26 joint accounts can have a maximum of two account holders.

Do I need a personal N26 account to open a joint account?

Yes. First you need to open a personal account and then you will be able to open a joint account.

Can I get two physical cards with my joint account?

Once your N26 joint account is open, you can connect the card linked to your existing N26 personal account to your joint account instead. Alternatively you can connect a virtual card, or buy an additional card that is dedicated to your joint account for €10. Please remember that N26 cards are always issued per person, so it isn’t possible to have a card with both joint account holders' names on it.

How can I open a joint account as a new customer?

First you need to open a personal N26 account. Then you can be invited to be a joint account holder, or open a joint account yourself.

How can I open a joint account as an existing customer?

If you already have a personal account with N26, head to the ‘Finances’ tab of your N26 app. Then add a joint account and choose the contact you want to share your joint account with. Once they accept your invitation and you both accept the terms and conditions, your joint account will be open. You’ll then each be able to transfer money in and out of the joint account.

Who is liable for a joint account?

Each account holder has 100% liability and equally shared ownership of the activity in the joint account.

Whose name is the joint account in?

Both account holders are named on the joint account.

How much does a joint account cost?

The N26 joint account is a free feature available to all N26 customers, regardless of membership type.

Can I switch my joint account from another bank to N26?

Yes, account switching is available.

What’s the difference between Shared Spaces and joint accounts?

Shared Spaces are available only to those with a premium N26 membership. It's not possible to make payments directly from a Shared Space, as they don't have a dedicated IBAN and you can't link a card to them. Each Shared Space can have up to 10 participants, but only the persona who opened the Space is the legal owner of the funds within it.

Joint accounts are available to all N26 customers, regardless of membership. They have a dedicated IBAN, and you can link a virtual or physical card to your joint account to make direct payments. Only two people can join a joint account, but both account holders have full legal ownership of the shared funds within it.
