If we don’t receive your instructions beforehand, on maturity the account will revert to the interest rate of the Society’s variable rate Instant Cash ISA, or its nearest equivalent available, and will be subject to the product terms and conditions of the Society’s variable rate Instant Cash ISA (or its nearest equivalent).
