What is the interest rate?
  • 3.00% AER/Gross - Annual Interest.
  • Interest is variable and calculated on a daily basis on the balance in the account.
  • Interest is paid following close of business on March 31st each year.
  • If the account falls below the minimum balance of £25,000, you will receive a variable interest rate of 0.05% AER/Gross, until the account is returned to the minimum balance.
Can Monmouthshire Building Society change the interest rate? 
  • Yes - the interest rate is variable, which means the interest rate can go up or down.
  • In line with our General Terms and Conditions for savings accounts (6.9 -6.11) we may change the interest rate at any time if we reasonably believe the change is needed.
  • 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 we will notify you by sending you a letter, email or other personal notice 30 days in advance of the change.
What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £25,000 deposit?
  • £25,750.00.
  • We have worked this out assuming a £25,000 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.

Can I withdraw money?
  • Yes, you do not have to give notice to make a withdrawal or close your account.
  • Withdrawals can be made by cash, cheque and electronic transfer.
  • If a withdrawal reduces the account balance to less than £25,000, you will receive a variable interest rate of 0.05% AER/Gross, from the date of the withdrawal until the account is returned to the minimum balance.
Additional Product Information
