What is the interest rate?
Interest rate for months where no withdrawals are made Interest rate for any month in which a withdrawal is made
0.09%/0.10% Gross monthly/AER (variable) 0.00% Gross monthly/AER (variable)
Interest is calculated each day and paid monthly on the 1st of each month. If you have selected to pay interest to a different account, interest will be paid on the first working day of the month.

At the end of the 12 month term the account will switch to an Easy Saver (excluding the bonus rate) for which the current interest rate is 0.01% Gross/AER (variable).
Can TSB change the interest rate? Yes. We can move the interest rate up or down at any time. Our Personal Banking Terms and Conditions explain when we'll do this. 

If we increase the interest rate, we’ll make details of the rate change available in branch, on the phone and on our website, within 3 days of the change. If we decrease the interest rate, we’ll let you know personally and give you at least 2 months’ notice.
What would the estimated balance be after 12 & 24 months based on a £1,000 deposit? Based on a £1,000 deposit, with no deposits or withdrawals made from the account, and variable interest rates remaining the same:
Initial deposit £1,000
Year 1 Interest earned at 0.09%/0.10% Gross monthly/ AER % (variable) £1.00
Estimated balance after 12 months £1,001.00
Year 2 (Easy Saver) Interest earned at 0.01% Gross/AER (variable) £0.10
Estimated balance after 24 months £1,001.10
Based on a £1,000 deposit, with no further deposits, £10 withdrawals made in months 1 and 2, and variable interest rates remaining the same.

NB: The below projection allows for limited withdrawals only. If you anticipate making regular withdrawals during the account term, this may not be the most appropriate option to suit your needs.
Initial Deposit £1,000
Year 1 Interest earned at 0.00% Gross Monthly/AER (variable) for months 1 and 2 (withdrawals) £0
Interest earned at 0.09% / 0.10% Gross Monthly/AER (variable) for months 3 to 12 (no withdrawals) £0.82

What happens if I make a withdrawal?

If you make a withdrawal during the term of your Save Well Limited Access Account, the interest rate applied to the balance for the whole calendar month in which your withdrawal is made, will be a lower rate of 0.00% Gross monthly/AER variable.

How to withdraw

  • Cash
  • Bankers draft
  • Transfer to a TSB current or savings account
(Service charges may apply, see our Banking Charges guide for more information)

Additional information

  • Accounts can be held in sole or joint names
  • Interest is paid gross (without taking off tax)
  • If you earn more interest than the Personal Savings Allowance, you may have to pay extra tax yourself
  • The Personal Savings Allowance is £1,000 for basic rate taxpayers and £500 for higher rate taxpayers. Additional rate taxpayers don't receive a Personal Savings Allowance
  • If you aren’t happy with your account, you can cancel it within 30 days of opening without charge. If you choose to close your account after 30 days and before the end of the term, a lower interest rate will apply for that calendar month.
  • If you chose to close the account before the end of the term, interest will be paid to the day before account closure. The interest rate will be the lower rate that is normally applied to months in which a withdrawal is made.

Your eligible deposits with TSB are protected up to a total of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK's deposit protection scheme.

Your deposits with us are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). The FSCS can pay compensation to depositors if a bank is unable to meet its financial obligations. Most depositors - including most individuals and small businesses - are covered by the scheme.

In respect of deposits, an eligible depositor is entitled to claim up to £85,000. For joint accounts each account holder is treated as having a claim in respect of their share so, for a joint account held by two eligible depositors, the maximum amount that could be claimed would be £85,000 each (making a total of £170,000). The £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all the eligible depositor's accounts with the bank including their share of any joint account, and not to each separate account.

For further information about the compensation provided by the FSCS (including the amounts covered and eligibility to claim) please ask at your local branch, refer to the FSCS website  or call the FSCS on 020 77 414 100 or 08006 781 100 . Please note only compensation related queries should be directed to the FSCS.

Accounts with TSB Bank plc include accounts in all its divisions and under trading name TSB and TSB Business. An eligible depositor's £85,000 limit relates to the combined amount in all accounts with TSB Bank plc.
