      Hi Pat,

      Thanks for getting in touch! It’s good to know that you’re looking to invest your money into a term deposit.

      It’s helpful to know that while we compare a multitude of banks (and others) on our pages, we cannot recommend one product for you. If you’d like to compare and find the best interest rates for a 6-month term deposit, you can refer to this page.

      On the page, you’ll find:

      – the list of banks you can choose from
      – how 6-month term deposits work
      – how to compare term deposits
      – pros and cons of 6-month term deposits
      – and some questions other users ask about the product that may answer some of your questions too!

      As a friendly reminder, review the eligibility criteria and read up on the terms and condition of the account before applying. Feel free to reach out to the bank if you need any clarifications.

      With care,
      Nikki

      Hi Samantha,

      Thanks for contacting Finder.

      Nothing mentioned on their eligibility criteria and Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions that you need an Everyday Account to open a Suncorp term deposit account.

      Below are the eligibility and documentation required to apply

      Minimum age. Suncorp bank has savings products available for people as young as 18 years old.
      Residency requirements. You must be a permanent Australian resident for tax purposes with a residential address in Australia.
      Depository requirements. You must be able to deposit at least $5,000 in order to activate the term deposit.

      Tax file number. With interest earning accounts, providing your tax file number (TFN) or exemption code enables the bank to withhold the correct amount of tax. Without this, they are obligated to apply tax on your earned interest at the highest marginal rate.
      Identification. Standard forms of acceptable identifying documents include your driver’s licence, passport and Medicare card.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to contact us at any time if any other questions arise

      Cheers,

      Faye

    Hi John,

    Thanks for your question.

    Kindly note that with Suncorp Term Deposit, if you need to request early access to your term deposit funds, you will need to do so 31 days in advance. Breaking the terms will result in a loss of interest based on the percentage of the term you did meet, along with a $30 administration fee.

    You can get in touch with Suncorp directly to request access to your term deposit funds.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your question.

      With Suncorp Term Deposit, you’ll be charged an administration fee of $30 if you will withdraw your term deposit funds early or before the term matures. Furthermore, you will need to inform Suncorp 31 days in advance before you withdraw. Breaking the terms will result in a loss of interest based on the percentage of the term you did meet.

      Cheers,
      May
