The ANZ Term Deposit is a high interest savings product that locks your money away until the terms you set have been met. Terms can range over a period of five years, allowing you to meet short term saving plans or a long term financial goal. It has no monthly fees and provides you with choices on how and when your interest payments are made.
ANZ also offer Advance Notice Term Deposits - if you need to access your funds prior to the end of your investment term, you will be required to give 31 days notice.
What are the features of the ANZ Term Deposit?
- Monthly fees. No monthly maintenance fees are deducted from your savings with the ANZ term deposit.
- Interest rates. The interest rates are fixed with the term deposit and tiered according to how long you choose to invest and the amount of your investment.

How do I apply for the ANZ Term Deposit online?
If you believe that the ANZ Term Deposit is the right savings product for you, and you are not already an existing ANZ customer, you will need to visit a local branch or call the bank in order to apply.
Visit ANZ website if you are an existing ANZ account holder and have ten free minutes to fill out the application. Before getting started, check to see if you are eligible for a term deposit account from ANZ:
- Minimum age. You must be at least 12 years of age or older for your application to be considered.
- Residency requirements. In order to be eligible for a term deposit from ANZ you must be an Australian resident with an Australian residential address.
- Depository requirements. You will have to be able to make a deposit of at least $5,000 for the account to be opened and begin earning interest.
ANZ will also ask for certain documentation which you should have readily available in order to make filling out the application easier:
- Tax file number. As this is an interest earning account, providing ANZ with your tax file number (TFN) or TFN exemption code will help in making sure that the withholding tax on your earned interest is at the correct rate.
- Identification. An Australian driver’s licence or passport is required as an identifying document in order for your application to be processed. If you do not have either of these, ANZ can provide you with a list of other acceptable forms of identification.
- US citizens. If you are a United States resident or citizen, you will need to provide your tax identification number (TIN) or Social Security Number (SSN) as required by law.
- ANZ account. You need to have an ANZ savings or transaction account already active before applying for this account. When completing the application you will be asked for that account number. If you do not already have an account with ANZ, you will need to first apply for one.
Once your application has been reviewed and your initial deposit cleared, ANZ will provide you with the details for your new term deposit account.
