How term deposits work
Term Deposits can help you earn great returns if you can lock your surplus cash away for a set term. So if you have savings that you don't need access to right now, a Term Deposit could be for you.
Interest rates can rise and fall without notice. But once you’ve invested in one of our Term Deposits, you’ll have the certainty of your fixed rate throughout its term.
You can ask to withdraw all or part of your term deposit prior to the Maturity Date by
a) telling us 31 days before you want to withdraw; or
b) if you are experiencing hardship (as reasonably determined by us).
If we agree to an early withdrawal for either of the above reasons, you might receive a reduction in the interest paid to you.
