1. What is the interest rate?


Balance AER/Gross p.a. (variable)
£1+ 0.01%

Interest is paid on a tiered basis which means you’ll earn one rate on your entire account balance.

Interest is calculated daily and paid annually on the first business day in January and at account closure.

If you choose for interest to be paid into a nominated Ulster Bank account in your name(s), then interest will be paid into that account. 

2. Can Ulster Bank change the interest rate?


Yes, these rates are variable. They may be changed  for any of the reasons set out in Term 9.2 of Personal Banking - terms and conditions, Your savings account terms  e.g. to take account of Bank of England base rate changes or changes in the rates paid by other banks. If the rates are going down, we’ll give you at least 60 days’ notice. If they are going up, we’ll inform you before the change or shortly afterwards. Term 9.2. contains details of the notice we’ll give you
