A man working on a checklist

Check you’re eligible to apply online

  • I’m 18 years or older.
  • I’m a permanent Australian resident.
  • I’m applying for a single or joint term deposit account.

What you need to apply

  • Minimum deposit of $5,000.
  • Tax file number (TFN) to avoid withholding tax on the interest you earn.

What to know before you apply

  • This product has a fixed term. If you think you’ll need immediate access to your money, an ‘at call’ product might suit you better. However, you can access your money early by giving us 31 days notice.
  • If you access your funds before your term deposit matures, we’ll adjust the amount of interest you receive. This is called a prepayment cost. The prepayment cost applies even if you give us 31 days notice.
  • If you chose to reinvest your funds in a new term deposit after your original term deposit matures, a different interest rate may apply.
