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.
