Personal cash deposits exceeded a billion pounds for the third successive month. In May, £1.06 billion was deposited over the counters, broadly in line with April (£1.07 billion).

Personal cash withdrawals
Personal cash withdrawals totalled £583 million in May, similar to April (£589 million, April 2021).

May was the first time since January that personal cash withdrawals had levelled off month-on-month and the first time since February that personal cash deposits had slowed month-on-month which Post Office attributes to the wet weather seen across many parts of the UK last month.
