      Hello Bruce,

      Thank you for your comment.

      CUA actually has Term Deposit Account wherein their terms are really flexible. You get to choose a term length from one month to five years. See the interest rates per term here. You also have the option of having interest paid to you monthly, annually or at maturity.

      Alternatively, you may also confirm other term deposit accounts here. After comparing, please click the Go to Site button of your preferred account to apply. Please make sure that you’ve read the relevant T&Cs or PDS of the account to help consider whether the product is right for you.

      Hi Coral,

      Thanks for posting your question on

      When you open your second CUA Everyday 55+ account, you will receive a BSB and account number when the account is active.

      You can then use these details to be your recipient details and process the transfer via online banking.

      Hope this helps,
