You probably also want some flexibility, earning a good rate of interest on your savings but with the ability to access your money. Well, we think we’ve spotted a gap in the market.
Our Premium Saver Account aims to reward you if you need only limited access to your money, offering a better rate of interest than many accounts in return for your agreement to make just one withdrawal per calendar month.
The minimum investment is £500 and the maximum investment is £300,000.

|Can I withdraw money?|
Only one penalty free easy access withdrawal is available per calendar month. Should you need further access to your funds, additional withdrawals can be made subject to 30 days’ loss of interest on the amount withdrawn.
The minimum withdrawal is £250 by cash or cheque and the maximum cash withdrawal limit is £500 per day.
Subject to the conditions set out above, money can be paid out against a cheque from the start of the sixth working day following the day of deposit. Working day means a day other than a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday. Funds are available for immediate withdrawal for all other types of deposit.
Interest is paid gross without tax deducted. Since 6 April 2016, most people have no longer been required to pay tax on savings income. However, it is your responsibility to pay any tax due, based on your individual circumstances. Ask for a copy of A guide to the Personal Savings Allowance produced by HM Revenue & Customs for further details.
Gross rate – the annual rate of interest to be paid on a savings account without any deduction being made in respect of personal Income Tax liability.
AER - stands for Annual Equivalent Rate and illustrates what the interest rate would be if interest was paid and added once a year (or monthly as the case may be).
Interest is calculated on a daily basis up to and including the day before any withdrawal. For cheque receipts, interest is paid from the day after the cheque is deposited with us. For cash and automated credits, interest is paid from the day of receipt.
Each year on 1 December the interest earned will be credited to your Premium Saver Easy Access Account Issue 2.
Alternatively it can be paid to a bank or building society account or transferred to another account with the Society.
On sums of £5,000 or more interest can be paid at the end of each month. If you open an account after the 25th day you will receive interest for that month with the interest for the following month.
