Your Savings options

It’s worth knowing that you can also open an account in branch or speak to us about your savings options over the phone. We provide postal savings application packs for accounts which can’t be opened online so you can receive information about different accounts to select the one that’s right for you. These can be requested online or by calling our contact centre.

After you’ve registered for online access to your accounts, you’ll be able to keep a close eye on your money at any time of day, view account statements at the click of a mouse and transfer funds between other accounts whenever you like.

Some of our popular savings options:

  • Fixed-rate Bonds: If you can afford to put your money away for a year or even longer, these accounts could be for you.
  • Tax-free savings accounts: With our tax-free savings accounts, you pay no tax on the interest you earn.

Looking for something else? Don’t worry, we also have many other types of savings options, so browse our selection online
