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.
