What is the interest rate?

4.10% Gross*/AER*

Interest is calculated daily and added to your account annually on the 31st March.

Can the Vernon Building Society change the interest rate?

Yes, the rate is variable. That means we can move it, up or down.

Section 10 of our General Savings Account Terms and Conditions explains when we can do this, and how we’ll let you know.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 initial deposit?


This projection is provided for illustration only and does not consider individual circumstances. This assumes an initial deposit of £1,000, no further deposits or withdrawals being made over a 365-day period starting from the 1st April, 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 18 or above.

You must notify us in branch or via Online Services, specifying the amount you wish to withdraw, 35 days before making a withdrawal. If this falls on a non-working day, the withdrawal will be made on the next working day. Withdrawals without notice are not permitted.
