Cash ISA Issue 4
|Interest rate bands||
The interest rate you receive will depend on your balance. Once your balance increases or reduces to the next tier, you will receive that rate on your savings.
The interest is paid annually.
|Can the interest rate change?||Yes, the interest rates are variable. We can increase or decrease the interest rates as described in our Terms and Conditions of the account.
If we are decreasing the interest rate we will notify you before the reduction but within 14 days before the change takes effect.
|Estimated balance after 12 months based on a range of deposits||
These examples are based on the minimum lodgement for each interest rate tier made on account opening and assumes no further deposits or withdrawals are made throughout the year and that the interest rate does not vary during the 12 month period.
|How do I open and manage my account||The account is available to existing Members and new customers resident in Northern Ireland only who are aged 16 years and over.
The account can be opened and operated at any of the Society’s branches, agencies or by post.
There is a minimum lodgement of £10 required to open the account.
|Can I withdraw money?||Yes, this is an instant access account, withdrawals are allowed.
You can withdraw up to £250 in cash and larger amounts must be withdrawn by cheque.
- This is a passbook operated account. The passbook must be produced when transacting on the account.
- You can make a withdrawal and replace money from your Cash ISA without counting towards your annual ISA allowance for that year, as long as the repayment is made in the same tax year as the withdrawal.
- You can only subscribe to one Cash ISA in the same tax year, although over 18s may invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA and an Innovative Finance ISA. At Progressive we only offer the Cash ISA.
- You can save up to a maximum of the annual ISA allowance (currently £20,000 for tax year 2017-2018).
- This is a tax free account which means the interest paid is exempt from income tax.
- AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. The AER allows you to easily compare the interest rate on savings accounts. The higher the AER, the better the return on your savings.
- Gross rate quoted is the taxable rate of interest without deduction of income tax.
- The information provided is a summary of the key features of the savings account and it is not intended to be a substitute for reading the Terms and Conditions that apply to the account.
- For further information refer to the Terms and Conditions of the account contained within the Cash ISA Savings booklet and the Society’s Savings Service Agreement.
- These interest rates are correct as at 3 January 2017.
