If I’m currently not a ING account holder but wish to open a ING term deposit account locked in for 12 months. Do I need to open any other accounts with ING ?

No, you don’t need to have any other accounts to set up the term deposit with ING.

If we have a joint term deposit account totaling $500,000-Will we be covered by Aust Gov for $250,000 each Hence in total $500,000 for that one account?

Hi George, Deposits are protected up to a limit of $250,000 per account holder, per ADI.

APRA confirms that for joint accounts, the amount of protection is determined by splitting the deposit equally between the account holders. Each account holder’s share is then added to any other eligible deposits they hold under their own name at the same bank, building society or credit union before the $250,000 FCS limit is then applied to the total for each person.

In your example, provided each account holder has no more accounts with that bank, both of them would be covered for $250k each, $500k total.

Hi Laurel,

You won’t be able to link the term deposit account to your St George account. However if you want to transfer money from the term deposit account once it has reached maturity, then you can.
