Can Coventry Building Society change the interest rate?

The interest rate is fixed.


No matter what happens to interest rates generally, we won’t change the rate until the account matures at the end of 31 December 2025.

What would the estimated balance be after 50 months based on a £1000 deposit?

£1,050.97


This would be the balance after 50 months if £1,000 was paid in on 1 November 2021, all interest was paid back into the account, and no money was taken out or paid in.

  • You must be aged 18 or over and a UK resident to open this statement-based account


How to put money into your account


This is a limited issue account and you have a limited time to pay in.


You need to make sure we’ve received the money you’re using to open the account, and any other money you want to put in the account, either within 14 calendar days of your account being opened or while the account is open to new investors, whichever period is longer.
 

  • Pay in cash or cheques in a branch (please check branch opening hours first)
  • Post us a cheque
  • Set up transfers from an account with another bank or building society or another account with us. To do this you will need the last 8 digits of your account number and sort code 40-63-01
  • The minimum balance is £1
  • The maximum balance is £250,000


After you’ve opened the account, we won’t contact you to let you know when it closes to new investors. To find out if it’s still available, please contact us.

Can I withdraw money?

This is a no access account. After the 14 day ‘cooling off period’, you can’t make withdrawals (including any interest paid into the account) or close the account before 31 December 2025.

 

What happens when the bond’s fixed period ends (matures)


This Poppy Bond (155) will mature at the end of 31 December 2025.

We’ll write to you at least 14 days before the account matures with details of how you can re-invest your savings with us, or take out some or all of your money. There’ll be a default option - another bond with us. The length of the fixed bond will either be shorter, the same or no more than six months longer than the duration of your current bond, and options to take money out will be no more restrictive than the options offered by your original account.

At maturity, the money in this account will be automatically re-invested into the default option unless you have asked us to do something else with it. However, you’ll have the option to close your new bond, without being charged, within 21 days after the end of your fixed period.

Additional information

Our donation to the Royal British Legion (Registered Charity no. 219279) will be equal to 0.20% of the total balances invested in Poppy Bond (155) as at the end of business on 31 December 2021.
 

The Royal British Legion will donate a percentage of the donation value to Poppyscotland (Scottish Charity No. SC014096), to reflect the percentage of all Society ‘Poppy’ accounts held by customers with a Scottish address.
 

We pay your interest gross. The gross rate is the interest payable before the deduction of tax.


* AER stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and shows what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added each year.
