Can I access money in a Fixed Rate Savings Bond before its term ends?

Normally, you can’t withdraw money or close your Fixed Rate Savings Bond during its term. However, we understand that your circumstances can change from time to time for reasons beyond your control.

If your circumstances have changed significantly, perhaps due to illness, a relationship ending or financial difficulties, you may be able to access the money in your Fixed Rate Bond. You can ask us about this from the ‘Help’ section in our app and Online Banking, or by visiting a branch or Banking Hub. Alternatively, you can call us on 0345 744 5445. We’re here Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm and Saturday 9am to 5pm*.

*To maintain a quality service, we may monitor or record calls. Due to popularity, the next available appointment in a branch may be a few weeks away. Call charges.
