Key features

Terms available from 3 months to 5 years

You have the option of choosing terms ranging from 3 months up to 5 years.

$0 Minimum balance

The minimum balance amount is $5,000 in order to be eligible to earn interest.

Your interest rate is fixed for the period

The interest rates are fixed at a rate dependent on the length of your terms and amount on deposit. The longer you choose to invest and the larger your balance, the higher the rates will be.

How is my interest calculated?

The interest will be calculated on your daily balance and paid to the account annually and at maturity.

Terms and conditions for early withdrawal

Withdrawal of your money before the agreed upon term ends can only be done at the discretion of BankVic after a written request has been received by you. In the event the request is approved, a reduction of interest will be applied to reflect the change in terms.

What happens when my term deposit it about to mature?

You will be notified a week prior to the ending term date and provided with current interest rates. If at this time you do not provide any further instruction a new account will be started with the same terms as your previous one but at the prevailing interest rate. You can also choose to continue the terms and deposit additional funds. You will be provided with a Term Deposit Certificate once the account has been activated and a new one each time the account is renewed.
