Coronavirus - Help us to help you

We are working hard to maintain the best service we can for you. As you can imagine our telephone lines are exceptionally busy at the moment. So we are asking for your help too.

In the interests of the health of both our customers and our staff, please avoid visiting our branches unless necessary. Please telephone your local branch direct if you have any queries or to register to use our online services.

To reduce the risk to our branch staff and customers, branch opening hours have temporarily be reduced to 9am - 1pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 12pm Saturdays.

We have also temporarily reduced our telephone opening hours at Principal Office to 9am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 12pm Saturdays. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Coronavirus Update

We understand that some customers may be worried about the effect that contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) could have on their finances, for example due to a drop in income as a result of contracting the virus or because of the measures imposed to stop it spreading. If you have any concerns about how this could affect you and your mortgage, please click here to read the leaflet produced by the Building Societies Association and National Debtline or please get in touch on 01664 414141.

Coronavirus Scams

The Society is aware of fraudsters using the Coronavirus outbreak to try and trick people into parting with their money. Here are four types of fraudulent activity that we are aware of:

  • Sales of ineffective protective face masks
  • Coronavirus-themed phishing emails with malicious links and attachments
  • Fraudsters sending texts and emails pretending to be from the World Health Organisation (WHO) claiming to be able to provide a list of infected people in their area. Please remember to be wary of links and attachments from unsolicited emails and texts and take care not to provide your personal or financial details
  • Posing as employees of a bank or building society. Please click here to read further guidance on how to protect yourself

Thank you for your patience.

Call us on 01664 414141 between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday and 9am and 12pm on Saturdays
 

Offset Share Savings

melton offset savings accounts

An offset share savings account means you may be able to offset your savings against your mortgage and only pay interest on the difference.

Product Name Minimum Balance Interest Paid Gross Interest % AER % Withdrawals Add to brochure download
Passbook Offset Share Savings n/a n/a n/a n/a Easy Access
Online Offset Share Savings n/a n/a n/a n/a Easy Access. Online withdrawal limit of £10,000 per day.
Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future

An offset share savings account means you may be able to offset your savings against your mortgage and only pay interest on the difference. You will not earn any interest on any balance in the Offset Share account as any investment up to the maximum limits permitted is being used to reduce the amount of interest charged on your mortgage.

Offset Share accounts are the only savings accounts which can be linked to a mortgage. An Offset Share can only be linked to one mortgage. The mortgage will be linked with an Offset Share to reduce the amount of interest charged on the mortgage. Mortgage interest will be calculated on the daily difference between the mortgage balance and the share account balance.

The Society has two Offset Share Savings accounts – the Passbook Offset Share Savings and Online Offset Share Savings.

How safe are your savings?
You may be worried that if you tie your money up in a savings account, it won’t be protected. However, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme is an independent body that serves as a last resort to cover most deposits, including savings up to the value of £85,000. So, if for some reason your bank or building society failed, your money is protected by the FSCS.
