I’m a provisionally registered (VIT) teacher. Can my mother invest in a term deposit with Teachers Mutual Bank?

Hi Peter,

Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

Yes, your mother can invest in a term deposit with Teachers Mutual Bank so long that she becomes a member and pay a one-time membership fee of $10.00. If applying online, please make sure that you’ve read the relevant T&Cs or PDS of this account to help consider whether the product is right for you/your mother.

I hope this helps.

Thank you and have a wonderful day!
