Adding a Spouse to an Account in HSBC

HSBC is an international financial services company headquartered in London, England. The bank offers its U.S.-based customers a variety of banking options, including current accounts, savings accounts and credit cards. If you're currently a HSBC customer and would like to add a spouse to your HSBC account, you need to call an HSBC customer service number.

Call an HSBC customer service number. For checking and savings accounts, call 800-975-4722. For Premier accounts, call 866-662-4722. For credit card accounts, call 888-385-8916.

Tell the customer service representative that you'd like to add a spouse as an authorised user to the account. Provide the customer service representative with your account information, including your name, account number and address.

Provide the customer service representative with your spouse's information. You need your spouse's full legal name, address, Social Security number and date of birth.

Wait while the customer service representative adds your spouse as an authorised user to your HSBC account. The customer service representative completes this process while you're on the phone. If the HSBC account has an associated credit or debit card, you can expect to receive a new card with your spouse's name in approximately 10 to 15 business days.

Warning

By adding a spouse as an authorised user to your HSBC account, you assume legal responsibility for all charges made on your account by your spouse.
