Fixed Rate Maturity Process - The Society will write to you 14 days before the date of maturity to set out your options. You will be invited to reinvest your maturing funds into an alternative product, transfer to an existing MMBS account or withdraw the balance. If we do not receive your instructions before the date of maturity, your money will default into an Online 30 Day Notice account. If your funds are automatically reinvested into our Online 30 Day Notice account, you may cancel it within 30 days of maturity. We will help you switch to another account or we will give all your money back with any interest it has earned. We will ignore any notice period and any extra charges.
