Can Monmouthshire Building Society change the interest rate? 
  • Yes - the interest rate is variable, which means the interest rate can go up or down.

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

  • £1,024.90.
  • We have worked this out assuming a £1,000 deposit is made, no further deposits or withdrawals are made during a 12 month period, the interest rate stays the same and is paid into the account.
