What happens if i want to break the term deposit a couple of months early ? why does it take 31 days to get your money ?

Hi Adam, if you want to break your term deposit early you’ll need to give 31 days notice and an interest rate reduction may apply. This is because term deposits are designed to be locked until they mature – they’re not meant to be accessed early.

How do I take my money out of a term deposit on maturity date

Hi Sue Ellen,


On maturity date, you can withdraw funds by transferring them out of your term deposit account into an every-day transactional/savings account. You can do this online, through the app or at a branch.


Hope this helps!

If I invest in term deposit for 24 months with a deposit of $200;000 what will be my return and my % rate

Hi Noel,


If the interest will be paid at maturity, monthly, quarterly, and semi-annually, the rate is 2.85% p.a while the interest paid yearly gets 2.90% p.a (as of Aug 2022).


Kind regards,

Alison

What is the interest rate for a Term Deposit of $50,000, please?


Avatar

Jhezelyn Finder

Hello Anthea,


Thank you for your comment.


The rates on the page above are for balances below $5000. The rate for a balance of $50,000 depends on how long the term is. For a balance of $50,000, the current interest rate for a 12 month term is 1.70% p.a., and the interest on a 24 month term is 1.95% p.a. These rates are correct as of 1st July 2019 and are subject to change.

Regards,

Jhezelyn
