Term Deposit Withdrawals

When you invest on a term deposit, you are investing a fixed amount of your money for a fixed term at the agreed fixed interest rate. However, you can ask to withdraw all or part of your term deposit prior to the maturity date for the term deposit:

(a)  by telling us 31 days before you want to withdraw; or
(b)  if you are experiencing hardship (as reasonably determined by us).

If we agree to an early withdrawal for either of the above reasons, you will receive a reduction in the interest paid to you. If the last day of the 31 day notice period falls on a non-Business Day, the amount being withdrawn will be paid to you on the next Business Day.
Effect of withdrawal on interest: A withdrawal may affect the interest rate payable on the remaining amount invested in the Term Deposit.

Interest reduction for early withdrawals

Interest reduction: If you withdraw all or part of a Term Deposit before its Maturity Date in accordance, you might receive a reduction in the interest paid to you on the amount withdrawn. The actual withdrawal rate is subject to the withdrawal date. We will tell you the amount of that reduction at the time you ask to withdraw all or part of your Term Deposit. In some cases, the interest reduction might result in no interest being payable on the amount being withdrawn before the Maturity Date.
