What you need to decide
When you invest in an Index-linked Savings Certificate you agree to keep it until the end of the term. We will write to you around 30 days before that date to let you know your options.
These will normally include:
- renewing your Certificate for another term of the same length
- renewing it for a term of a different length (only 3-year and 5-year terms available)
- cashing it in
To choose the first option, you don’t need to do anything – your Certificate will automatically renew for another term of the same length.
But make sure this is what you intend. If you change your mind after it has renewed and want to cash in before the end of the new term, we’ll charge you a penalty equal to 90 days’ interest on the amount cashed in. And you’ll lose the index-linking on your whole Certificate for that investment year.
Remember that the interest rate for renewing your investment could be higher or lower than the rate for your current term.
The information on this page is only relevant if you have a Certificate maturing soon.
