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, from 1st April, branch opening hours will temporarily be reduced to 9am - 12pm Monday to Friday and closed on Saturdays.
We have also temporarily reduced our telephone opening hours at Principal Office to 9am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday and closed on Saturdays.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
There is some evidence that criminals are attempting to use the current COVID-19 situation as an exploitation opportunity, so please be extra vigilant before clicking on an email about the coronavirus outbreak. If a claim sounds too good to be true, it probably is...
Criminals use exceptional circumstances like the current situation as a chance to pose as employees of a genuine organisation such as building society, bank or police and target you for fraud scams. They may claim they are dealing with coronavirus-related issues that require you to respond by paying money or providing personal information that will allow them to access your account. They often use pressure tactics to stop you thinking about want they want you do for them.
To help you stay protected, here are some things that we will never do:
Please remain vigilant.
Stop – Take a moment to think.
Challenge – Don’t be afraid to ask questions or to say “No” and end the conversation.
Protect – Contact the building society or the bank from which you have made a payment immediately if you think that you have been the victim of fraud.
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.

The Melton Building Society
The Melton is giving away special Wild Ones Packs to children aged 0 to 16 years who open a Wild Ones Young Savers Account at any of our branches. The Wild Ones Packs contain a pocket wildlife guide, wildflower seeds and more, encouraging young people to enjoy wildlife and get into the habit of saving. New Young Savers can also choose one of our limited edition passbook wallets – will yours be a lizard, toad, harvest mouse or a seal?
Call in to your local branch to find out more.
The Wild Ones Young Savers account is suitable for 0 – 16 year olds. Whatever you are saving for, this account offers a higher rate of interest than the easy access Young Savers account but has a 30 day notice period attached to it in respect of withdrawals.

Monthly interest, payable at the end of each month, will be added to your account.
|Can the Melton Building Society change the interest rate?||

We will give you thirty days’ notice before any change that would disadvantage you.
For full details please read our Terms and Conditions.
|What would the estimated balance be after 12 months based on a £1,000 deposit?||
Based on the current rate of interest, if you deposited £1000 in this account, after 12 months you would have £1030.42.
(This figure is only an estimate, based on there being no additional deposits, withdrawals or rate changes in that time with all interest being added to your account. This figure is for illustrative purposes only, and does not take into account your individual circumstances.)
|How do I manage and open my account?||
This account is only for UK resident individuals between birth and 16 years of age living in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire or Rutland or to customers who have been members with the Society for 5 years or more.
Accounts can be opened with a minimum amount of £5 and the maximum that can be held in this account is £5,000 not including interest.
A Young Savers account can only be opened in your sole name and at your registered address. Any money in the account will belong to you and not any counter-signatories to your account. Counter-signatories are normally a parent, grand-parent or guardian registered to your account upon opening.

A parent or guardian must authorise all withdrawals until you reach 7 years of age. For withdrawals over £50 a counter-signatory is required to sign with you, where you are aged between 7 and 16, to enable the withdrawal to take place.
