Questions we get asked

What is an E-Savings Bond?

Our limited-edition E-Savings Bonds pay a fixed rate of interest for a fixed term, making them ideal for lump sum deposits. We offer various E-Savings Bonds with varying terms.

What’s the interest rate?

Our Bonds offer different rates, depending on the term.

The rate is fixed for the term of the Bond, so you know exactly how much interest you’ll get back when the Bond matures.

You can see all our interest rates here.

How do I open an E-Savings Bond?

You can apply to open an account with our quick and secure online accounts service SBS Online. Once you've registered, you can open other savings accounts online too. You can find out more about SBS Online here.

Or, if you're ready to get started, you can apply now.

How much can I save in an E-Savings Bond?

The minimum opening balance is £500 up to a maximum of £1,000,000. Additional funds can only be deposited in the 14 days after the Bond is opened. After the first 14 days, no further funds can be deposited during the term.

Can I withdraw money?

No withdrawals are permitted during the fixed rate period. When the Bond matures, you can withdraw your maturing funds or transfer some, or all, of your funds to a new Bond.

Can I close my E-Savings Bond early?

No, your funds need to remain in the Bond until it matures. Our Bonds are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and can be withdrawn once the subscription is full. If we receive your application after the Bond is fully subscribed, we'll contact you for further instructions.

Financial Services Compensation Scheme

The deposits in your Bond are protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK’s deposit guarantee scheme.

If your bank or building society fails and can’t pay back your money, FSCS can automatically pay you compensation:

  • up to £85,000 per eligible person, per bank, building society or credit union.

  • up to £170,000 for joint accounts.
