Summary Box

Progressive Saver account

What is the interest rate?

£25,000 – £1,000,000 0.60%
£ 1,000 – £ 24,999 0.50%

The interest rate you receive will depend on your account balance. Once your balance increases or reduces to the next tier, you will receive that rate on your savings.

The interest is paid annually and will be credited to your account after close of business on 1 September.

Can Progressive change the interest rate?

Yes, the interest rate is variable. We can increase or decrease the interest rate as described in our Savings Service Agreement.

If we are decreasing the interest rate we will notify you at least 14 days before the change takes effect.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a range of deposits?

Initial Deposit Estimated Balance
£25,000 £25,150
£1,000 £1,005

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.

Additional information

AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year. This will enable you to compare more easily the return you can expect from your savings over time.

Gross rate quoted is the taxable rate of interest without deduction of income tax.

You may need to pay tax on any interest that exceeds your Personal Savings Allowance. For more information please visit HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) website hmrc.gov.uk.

The interest rate is correct as of 1 December 2017.
