Your interest

We will pay your interest on 14th October each year until it matures in 2020. We can pay it straight into your Member Rewards Bond Issue 5, into another account with The Nottingham or into another bank or building society account. Just let us know on your application form what you’d prefer us to do.

Paying money in

The minimum amount to open an account is £500. You can invest up to £750,000 whilst the account is still available.

Fixed rate accounts are only available for a limited period and once the account is withdrawn you won't be able to pay any more into your account.

Taking money out

As you won't be able to take any of your money out of the account until it matures on 14th October 2020, please make sure you won't need access to it before then.

What happens when the term ends?

Shortly before your account matures we will write to you with details of available savings products. If we do not hear from you, we will transfer your balance to an account called Branch Instant Issue 2, or an alternative account we consider appropriate at the time.
