Funding your Fixed Term Deposit

When your new Fixed Term Deposit Account is ready to be opened we will notify you by email that we are ready to receive your funds by electronic transfer. Deposits must be paid on working days.

You'll need these details:

Sort code: 16-57-10
Account number: 53673440
Account name: Term Deposit Control Account
Reference: Your Fixed Term Deposit account name (this is essential so we can deposit the funds into your new account).

30 days before the account matures, we'll write to you to confirm your options. A member of our team will also contact you to help discuss the options available. You can also give us your decision via the Fixed Term Deposit Maturity Options Form. A copy of this form can be downloaded from the 'Additional important literature about your account' tab below. We'll send you a reminder 2 weeks before your Fixed Term Deposit matures.

If we don't hear from you, we'll open a Term Maturity Account and transfer your maturing Fixed Term Deposit funds into it. You can see information on the current interest rate for the Term Maturity Account here.

The following options are available at maturity:

  • roll over the full value with the interest earned in the current term,
  • roll over a partial value and withdraw the remaining balance,
  • withdraw the full value into an account in your name.

If you want to withdraw part of the value of your deposit or the full amount, we'll send this by electronic transfer. The payment must be made to an account in the same name. A fee may be payable for this, please see our Banking Tariff for details.

All written instructions for maturing Fixed Term Deposits should be made using the Fixed Term Deposit Maturity Options Form.

If your Fixed Term Deposit matures on a weekend or bank holiday, the maturity option you selected will take effect on the next working day. If you roll over, you'll have 14 days to add more money to your account.

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if we paid interest and added it to your account each year.

How is interest paid?
Interest is paid on the 1st of the month after the funding of the account. Interest is then paid yearly into your term deposit. We'll pay interest again on the maturity date.
