You will need your National Insurance number during the application.

Interest is paid on a tiered basis which means you’ll earn one rate on your entire account balance.
Interest is calculated daily and paid into your account annually on the first business day in April and at account closure
Fixed Rate ISA
If you have a minimum deposit of £1,000, and you’re happy to leave your money untouched for a while, a Fixed Rate ISA might be better for you.
This type of cash ISA offers a fixed rate of interest for either one or two years.
The longer the term you choose, the higher the interest rate will be.

Key ISA Definitions
Annual Equivalent Rate (AER) – this is a notional rate used for interest bearing accounts, which illustrates the interest rate if paid and compounded each year. It helps you to compare the effective rates of credit interest on different accounts.
Tax-free interest means interest payable is exempt from UK income tax.
