    Can you advise the cost of transfer of transferring say $50,000.00 to a Singapore bank account with another bank from a NAB savings account.

    Can you advise how much for an internet transfer and an over the counter transfer of $50,000.00?

    If a portion of money is withdrawn or transferred within the term of the deposit, is there a penalty on interest earnt?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      ShirleyFebruary 22, 2016Staff

      Hi Frank,

      Thanks for your question.

      If you withdraw or transfer money out of your term deposit before it’s maturity, an interest penalty generally applies.

      For exact penalties applied to your situation, please speak to NAB directly.

      Hope this helps.
