Saving up for a rainy day—and then suddenly it’s pouring. No worries: you can withdraw as much as you like, whenever you like. It’s your money. If you withdraw your money before the end of the 12-month period, you will not receive the fidelity premium on this money.
Note that your account exists online, and online only. Check it on the go and make any changes you like in an instant.
Mark January 1st in your calendar: that’s when we’ll pay your 2,00% base rate. To boot, your fidelity premium will be paid every quarter, after saving your money for 1 year.
The fidelity premium will only be earned for amounts that remain continuously in the account for 12 consecutive months. The applied rate remains unchanged during this 12-month period and will be equal to the rate in effect at the time of the money deposit, even if it has been modified in the meantime.
Please read our Essential information for savers before opening an account.
