We use Starling for joint accounts. You don't get any special perks but it's super easy to get started. We've also set up direct debits for most bills excluding groceries, etc. to make everything easy.

I came across this article and thought some of you might find it interesting. It seems like sooner rather than later, paying for current accounts will be the norm.
Monzo doesn't seem to be in any immediate financial danger and continues to function as normal. However, if the worst happens and Monzo does go bust, your savings are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) up to a maximum of to £85,000 (£170,000 for joint accounts). If you have a lot of money, it is usually wise to spread it across different financial institutions. We recommend you save at most £83,000 in one institution, leaving some room for interest.
