How does a Notice Deposit work?
You can manage your deposit using eQ online banking, in branch, by telephone or in writing.
The deposit operates on a notice basis. Interest is paid at the applicable rate until a minimum 35, 60 or 90 days notice of withdrawal is instructed, depending on the relevant notice period.
Once notice has been provided, the amount withdrawn is placed on a Fixed Term Deposit.
The Fixed Term Deposit interest rate is calculated using the Notice Deposit Headline rate for 35 days along with the introduction of a fixed margin of -0.20%, known as the Step Down Rate. For 60 and 90 day Notice Deposit products, the prevailing Headline rate is used for the remainder of the notice period i.e.
- 35 Day Notice Deposit
The Step Down Rate applies for the full 35 day notice period
- 60 Day Notice Deposit
The Primary Notice Rate applies for 25 days of the notice period and the Step Down Rate applies for 35 days
- 90 Day Notice Deposit
The Primary Notice Rate applies for 55 days of the notice period and the Step Down Rate applies for 35 days
Upon maturity of the Fixed Term Deposit the balance plus any earned interest will be credited to your Cash Management account. If you don't have a Cash Management account, you'll need to open one when applying for a Notice Deposit.
