  • Interest is calculated on a daily basis on the balance in the account and paid annually (ending 31 March) or upon closure whichever is sooner.
    Can Monmouthshire Building Society change the interest rate?
    • Yes - the interest rate is variable, which means the interest rate can go up or down.
    • If we increase the interest rate, we will display this information in our branch/agency offices and on our website.
    • If we decrease the interest rate and you have a balance of £100 or more we will notify you by sending you a letter, email or other personal notice 14 days in advance of the change.
    • In line with our General Terms & Conditions for Savings Accounts (6.12-6.20) we may change interest rates at any time if we reasonably believe the change is needed.
