Regular Saver (Issue 18)Rates correct as at 1 AUG 2018
Our Regular Saver is designed to help you make regular monthly deposits, but is flexible enough that you don’t have to.
When you first open a Regular Saver (Issue 18), the maximum amount you can deposit into the account is £250 (£250 for joint accounts). The account balance then increases each month by a maximum of £250 up to a maximum total balance of £3,000 (£3,000 for joint accounts) at the end of the fixed term period. Please see below for more information.
If you have the odd month when you can’t make a deposit, you can top up your account later on with a bigger payment – up to your maximum balance for that month.
That means you won’t lose out if you can’t put savings aside every month.
Note that you can only have one Regular Saver (Issue 18) at a time (including joint accounts).
Please note that you cannot open a Regular Saver (Issue 18) if you already have a Regular Saver product with the Society, with the exception of Regular Saver (Issue 4). If you have one of these accounts and open the Regular Saver (Issue 18), the money deposited in the Regular Saver (Issue 18) account will be transferred to an instant access account.
