Can I withdraw money?
You can withdraw money (in branch, online or by calling telephone banking) until 3.30pm on the last date to make payments or withdrawals. Partial withdrawals are not permitted after this time.
If you want to make a withdrawal after this time and before the Maturity Date, you must close your account by giving 35 days’ written notice to your branch. An Early Closure Charge will be deducted from the balance of your account, except in the event of your non-voluntary redundancy or death.
The Early Closure Charge will be the lower of the amount of interest earned on your account or 90 days’ interest.
The total amount you receive (including interest earned on your balance) will be no less than your deposit at the Fixed Term Start Date. For example, if you have earned 50 days’ interest you will only be charged an Early Closure Charge equivalent to 50 days’ interest. If you have earned 100 days’ interest you will only be charged an Early Closure Charge equivalent to 90 days’ interest.
The Early Closure Charge will be deducted from the balance of your Fixed Term Savings Account.
Reinvestment of your Fixed Term Savings Account
At the Maturity Date we’ll automatically reinvest your deposit and any outstanding interest into a new Fixed Term Savings Account unless you tell us you want to opt out.
The interest rate for the new account may be higher or lower than the rate of interest which applied to your Fixed Term Savings Account when you took it out originally
If you choose not to reinvest, your account will be converted into an Instant Saver Account on the Maturity Date (or if the Maturity Date is not a business day, the next business day) and your money can be accessed on the following day.
Please see Term 7 of the Fixed Term Savings Account Terms and the Information Sheet for more information.
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.
