Do I need to pay commission if I pay term deposit through finder? Are there options to payout monthly interest instead of waiting until maturity? Any other charges I should be aware of?

Hi Denish,

No, you are not charged anything to compare products via Finder. Finder is a completely free service to use!

For terms above 12 months you can choose to receive your interest annually, bi-annually, quarterly, monthly or at maturity.

total interest on 60 day term deposit on $400.000 investment

Hi John,

NAB Term Deposit offers 0.05% p.a. for 60 day term. The interest is paid after the term matures.

With a balance of $400,000 you’d earn $33.33 in interest.

Higher rates are available for longer term lengths.

If I open this type of account for 6 months and I deposit 6,000. One month later, I want to deposit another 2,000. Will the total amount be available to withdraw once the 6 months of the first deposit is due?

Hi Jose,

If you are referring to the NAB term deposit, I’m afraid you won’t be able to deposit additional money into the account. This is a term deposit that you can only add money at the start and wait for it to mature.

If you wish to learn more, you can read our term deposit guide.

I hope this helps.
