Can the Vernon Building Society change the interest rate?

We have the right to vary the rate of interest at any time.

Please see section 10 of our General Savings Account Terms & Conditions for a more detailed explanation, which sets out when we can vary the interest rate and how and when we will notify you if this happens. A copy of the General Savings Account Terms and Conditions are provided when you open the account.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £100 monthly deposit?

£1,210.40 including bonus. (Up to £25,000 interest rate tier)

£1,203.90 excluding bonus.

These projections are provided for illustration only and do not consider individual circumstances. This assumes a deposit of £100 has been made each month, no further deposits or withdrawals being made over the 12-month period and that the interest rate does not change.

How do I open and manage my account?

This account is only available to UK residents aged 16 or above, that live within a 25-mile radius of our Stockport Head Office, i.e., the postcode noted on the account must be within 25-miles of postcode SK1 1HF.

This account does not allow Transfers In from other Cash ISA Managers.

You can open and manage the account in-branch or you can complete an application, and either email or post it back to us. Your transactions and balance will be printed in your passbook. Additionally, you can keep up to date by registering for our Online Services.

A minimum monthly deposit of £25 is required. Missed deposits can affect the interest payable. See ‘What is the interest rate’ section of this Summary Box for further information.

A maximum deposit limit of £500 per calendar month applies, which means a maximum of £6,000 per year can be saved in this ISA. The subscription limit set by HM Revenue & Customs is higher than this amount and you will not be able to subscribe to the maximum cash ISA limit.

You can deposit by cash or cheque in branch or by standing order or online banking.  We recommend that your monthly deposit is made by standing order before 25th of the month to avoid late subscriptions.

This account is a Non-Flexible ISA.

Can I withdraw money?

A maximum of 2 withdrawals may be made during each period (1st April to 31st March) without notice or penalty. Any further withdrawals will mean that the annual interest rate bonus will not be payable on 31st March.

Withdrawals from the account can be made in branch or through our Online Services.

The minimum balance allowed on this account after a withdrawal to keep the account open is £1.

Please refer to section 12 of the General Savings Terms & Conditions brochure for further information.
