Junior ISA (JISA)
Junior ISA (JISA) (for ages 0-17 inclusive)
What is the interest rate?
Interest is added to the account annually on 5 April.
Can the Society change the interest rate?
The interest rate is variable, which means we reserve the right to change them to reflect market conditions, to comply with legal or regulatory guidelines and the protect the long-term future of the Society.
We will give you 14 days’ notice before any change that would disadvantage you, providing you have a minimum balance of £100 at the time of writing. For full details please read our General Investment Terms and Conditions of any changes to your disadvantage.
What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?
Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1,000 into this account, after 12 months you would have £1,038.50.
(This figure is only an estimate, based on there being no additional deposits or withdrawals in that time with all interest being added to your account. This figure is for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account your individual circumstances.)
