Product Summary

Account Name

Monthly Income Fixed-Rate Bond to 31st January 2026

What is the interest rate?

4.12% Gross*

4.20% AER*

Interest is calculated daily and paid monthly which means the amount of interest will reflect the number of days in each calendar month

Interest must either be transferred to a Vernon savings account (subject to the terms and conditions of the receiving account) or transferred to a bank/building society account held in your name(s).

 
If paid into a Vernon savings account:

Interest is transferred at close of business on the last day of each month and on the maturity date 31st January 2026.

 
If paid into a bank/building society account:

This is paid on the last working day of each month up to and including January 2026. If the account is opened on or after the 27th of the month, accrued interest for the initial calendar month may only be paid at the end of the first full calendar month.

Can the Vernon Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate is fixed until maturity on the 31st January 2026.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £20,000 initial deposit?

In accordance with the terms and conditions of this product, the monthly interest cannot be added to the account; therefore, the account balance at the end of the term will be £20,000.

Assuming a deposit of £20,000, in a month where there are 30 days and an annual interest rate of 4.12%, the estimated monthly interest would be £67.73.
