Cash ISA notice 120 (issue 1)

What is the interest rate?

Tax-Free/AER: currently 4.85% variable

If your balance falls below the minimum operating amount the interest rate payable on the remaining balance for that calendar year will be equivalent to the Society's Extra Ordinary Account rate: GROSS/AER: currently 0.50% variable.

AER: Stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and compounded once each year

Can Teachers Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate for this account is variable, meaning that it can be changed at any time in accordance with sections 6.4, 6.5 and 6.6 of the applicable terms and conditions.

What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?

The estimated balance after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit would be £1,048.50. This amount is based on the assumption that all terms and conditions for the account are met.

How do I open and manage my account?

Can I withdraw my money?

Withdrawals and closures may be made with no loss of interest following 120 days’ notice by phone or online. Immediate withdrawals are not permitted. When you wish to make a withdrawal, you can log into your 'My Accounts' service or contact us via telephone to request the funds. The Society will then transfer the money to your nominated account by the Faster Payments Service. Your funds will then be available to you on the next working day, so please take this into account when making a withdrawal (this is not suitable if you think you may need the money on the same day).

This account is designed for people who do not need immediate access to their funds, as immediate withdrawals are not permitted. This is not a flexible ISA, therefore any withdrawals made will be taken from the current tax year subscription allowance and cannot be replaced.

Will I get charged to operate my account?

The normal day to day operation of your account is free of charge. However there are some additional services that we may charge you for. These are as follows:

• Withdrawals by telegraphic transfer: If you ask us to transfer money to your bank as a same day transfer - £25.00

• Unpaid/returned cheques: If your bank or cheque issuer does not honour your cheque and we reverse the payment from your account - £7.00
