Interest is calculated daily and can be paid annually or monthly. Once the frequency has been chosen (annual or monthly interest), this can’t be changed.


Annual interest

Interest can be paid back into the your bond or into another cahoot or external account. Interest will be paid annually on the anniversary of the date you opened the account.


Monthly interest

Interest can be paid back into another cahoot or external account but not back into your bond. Interest will be paid monthly on the date you opened the account.



We'll pay the final interest payment to your account on the date it matures. If any interest payment date is on a Sunday, we'll pay that interest payment to your account on Monday (with the final interest payment available for withdrawal on Tuesday).

AER is based on funds deposited on the day the account is opened. If you deposit funds after the day the account is opened, the interest you receive may be less than the advertised AER.

No, the interest rate is fixed during the term.
