Maturity options for your Fixed Term Deposit Account

If your existing Fixed Term Deposit Account is due to mature soon, you need to start thinking about what you’d like to do with the money once it’s released.

Click on the type of account you have below to view the options available from Scottish Widows Bank for your maturing funds. We'll write to you before your account is due to mature to remind you of these options and tell you what you need to do depending on your preference.

Personal Fixed Term Deposit Account

When your Personal Fixed Term Deposit Account matures, there are a number of options for you to decide what you’d like to do with the proceeds. If you’d like to withdraw some or all of the balance on the maturity date, call us on 0345 845 0829 and we can arrange this for you.

If you’re not sure what you’d like to do with the proceeds and need more time to decide, on the maturity date we’ll automatically transfer the balance into the Scottish Widows Bank Maturity Base Rate Tracker for personal funds. This account allows quick and easy access to your money and pays interest at the Bank of England base rate. You can view the terms and conditions for this account here.
