If we don’t hear from you before the term ends, we’ll convert your account into an Instant Access Cash ISA.
If you close your account or transfer the money to another provider before the term ends, you’ll lose 180 days interest.
If your account has earned less than 180 days interest, all your original deposit will be given back to you, or transferred to your new provider.
You can transfer money from an ISA you hold with another bank or building society to our Fixed Rate Cash ISA. And you’ll earn interest on this money before it even arrives in your account – we start paying interest from the date we receive your transfer request.
This doesn’t apply to transfers from accounts where you have to give notice that you’re taking money out. It also doesn’t apply when you’re transferring money from a stocks and shares ISA.
If you want to make a transfer in, you’ll need to do it within 30 days of opening your Fixed Rate ISA.
