What happens at the maturity of my Term Deposit?

When your Term Deposit matures - that is, it reaches the end of its term - you have a few options depending on whether you want to keep saving, or cash out to get your hands on your money.

You'll be asked to choose from the following maturity options when you apply for your term deposit.

  • Renew Term Deposit - Principal and Interest

Choose this option if you want the total amount in your Term Deposit to be renewed - for the same time period - upon maturity.

  • Renew Term Deposit - Principal Only

Choose this option if you want the interest earned during the Term Deposit to be transferred to your linked bank acocunt. We will then renew the Term Deposit using your original deposit account.

  • Close the Term Deposit

Choose this option if you want all of your money - the original deposit amount plus any interest earned - transferred back into your linked account.

On the day your Term Deposit matures, we'll act on your chosen instructions. If you chose option 2 or 3, we'll transfer the money to your designated bank account within a day.
