Lifetime ISA or LISA

You'll probably hear the word LISA banded around a fair bit in the coming years. Don't be confused, it's not the latest trend in girls names (it’s actually pronounced Lie-sa), but a Government scheme that could help you get a £1,000 a year bonus on your savings*. 53% of 1,028 savers that we surveyed in October 2018 were not aware of the Lifetime ISA with a 25% Government bonus on savings. 

If you're aged between 18 and 39, you can benefit from opening a Lifetime ISA and earn as much as £32,000 in free cash from the Government to put towards your first home or your retirement. 

The Nottingham is now offering customers the Cash Lifetime ISA in all of our branches. You can find out here what it is, how it works and what you need to do to start benefiting.

You'll soon be able to open an account and make your transactions online. If you can't get to a branch to open your account, why not register your interest and we'll make sure we email you when online access becomes available.
