Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.

Can you explain a bit more about what happened?

Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.

my wife and me have split but the joint account we had in are name she has closed with out my signture can she doe this

Has she actually closed the account or is there just a hold on it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
she has closed it

She may have forged your signature in that case as a joint account requires both people to sign to close it.

Check with the bank what happened and lodge a complaint if it has indeed been closed without reference to you.

as she works for the bank the account was in what will happen to her

It is likely she will have breached protocols of the bank and if she has closed it without proper authority, it will likely be gross misconduct.
