Term Deposit Terms and Conditions

Interest rates are current as at 8am 13-Jul-2024 and subject to change.
 
Terms and conditions apply. Fees and charges may apply. This is general information only and you should consider if this product is right for you.
 
Rates are for deposits between $5,000 and $2,000,000. For rates for amounts above $2,000,000, contact ME on 13 15 63.

You will get the interest rate that applies to your term deposit on the day your account opens.

The above rates are based on interest paid at maturity for terms up to 12 months and interest paid annually and at maturity for terms greater than 12 months.
 
If your term deposit was started before 29 May 2016, you can end your term deposit immediately, at any time. However, if it has since rolled over after 29 May 2016 you will still need to give at least 31 days’ notice.
 
We will credit interest at the selected interest payment frequency and at the maturity of the term.

Deposits are protected by the Australian Government’s Financial Claims Scheme, up to $250,000 per person per authorised deposit-taking institution.

1. Calculator information.

The Term Deposit Calculator calculates the approximate total interest earned in a term deposit based on the investment amount, term duration and interest rate (per annum) selected.

The calculator assumes that a year has 12 months of exactly equal lengths. Given some months are longer than others, actual interest earned will vary depending upon the month.

The actual duration of our terms are in calendar months, and the interest earned depends on the number of days the term deposit is open for.

The interest rates displayed are for amounts from $5,000 up to $2,000,000 and are based on the term duration and interest payment frequency selected. Contact ME for rates on amounts above $2,000,000.
