N26 and Joint Accounts

One thing that used to people off using N26 in Ireland is that they didn’t offer joint accounts.

This changed in April 2024 – when N26 began offering joint accounts for customers in Ireland .

A Joint account on N26 has a dedicated IBAN that you can use to 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.
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.

Like any other joint bank account – each account holder has full legal ownership of your shared finances, so you’re in full, equal control.
There are no extra charges for a joint N26 account.
