You can make up to 4 withdrawals each year (ending March 31) from your account subject to the limits of the branch or agency office you use. If you make a fifth withdrawal, we will give you two months written notice following which we close the account. You can also make withdrawals by electronic transfer using the 'My Accounts' system. Online withdrawals using the 'My Accounts' system are subject to further terms and conditions.
Transfers to another MBS account and withdrawals of interest and bonus added to the account will count towards your four withdrawals.
4 – Interest and Bonus
The interest rate is variable. Interest is calculated on a daily basis on the balance in the account and can be paid net or gross to non-tax payers.
Interest can be credited to the individual Flexible Saver account or paid annually into a suitable bank / building society account (or suitable Monmouthshire Building Society account) following the close of business on 31 March each year. Details of the current rates can be found in our interest rate leaflet.
On the first anniversary of the account being opened, you will receive a bonus of 2.00% AER/Gross calculated daily in addition to the variable interest rate which is payable to the individual Flexible Saver account. This is only payable where the individual Flexible Saver account is still open 12 months after that individual Flexible Saver account was opened. If the individual Flexible Saver account is closed before this date, no bonus is payable to that account.
We will write to you at least 28 days before the anniversary date to confirm the date of the bonus payment and that thereafter the bonus payment will end.
