Can Hanley Economic Building Society change the interest rate?

As the interest rate is variable, we may change the rate if we reasonably believe that the change is needed.

If we reduce the interest on your account, we will write to you 14 days before we make the change.

For full details on how and why we will change the interest rate on your account, please refer to Section 8 of the Savings Terms and Conditions.

What would be the estimated balance be after 12 months on a £1,000 deposit?

Based on the current interest rate, if you deposited £1,000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1,019.00. This figure is for illustration purposes and is based on no additional deposits, withdrawals or changes in interest rates within the 12 month period.
