Term deposit resources

Reviews, news, tips and guides to help find the best term deposit for you.

What is a 1 month term deposit?

A 1 month term deposit is a short term deposit, offered by some banks, that is designed to be a place to put away your funds while you save for something in the near future, or are just simply planning what to do next with your money. It’s a great option if you want access to your money after a short period of time or feel you can’t commit to a longer term. It is the shortest period of time for a term deposit as other short term deposits are 3, 6 or 12 months long. Read our term deposit reviews for all the info you need on different providers.

How much can I deposit?

Most banks have different maximum deposit amounts, but across the board you can expect to deposit a minimum of $1,000. To find balance limits for each provider simply look at our comparison table above or go to our Term Deposits Search Engine.

What happens if I want to access my funds before the month is over?

Term deposits are designed to hold your money for the agreed amount of time and remove the temptation to spend it, so early withdrawal is not ideal. But, in the case that you need fast access to your funds you will face a hefty early withdrawal fee. So, it’s worth weighing up your options because in the end it may not be the best option financially. 

Can I roll over the term deposit after 1 month?

Once the month is up, it means your term deposit has matured and you will be given full access to your money again. If you choose to, some banks will allow you to roll over your term deposit to a longer term, meaning you’ll continue to earn interest on your cash.

Can I earn high interest on a 1 month term deposit?

While term deposits are designed to give you the highest return on your money, interest rates offered on shorter terms tend to be a little lower than the longer term deposits. In this case, you might want to consider a longer term deposit.

Do I pay fees on a 1 month term deposit?

Luckily, in most cases, there are no set up, ongoing or annual fees on 1 month term deposits but always double check before you seal the deal.
REMEMBER: You could be hit with a big penalty if you decide to withdraw your funds before it reaches maturity. 

Can I top up my term deposit throughout the month?

Just like how you can’t withdraw your money from a term deposit, you can’t top up your balance either - the amount remains the same throughout the month. If you are considering a short-term term deposit but are unsure on how much you want to put away, a high-interest savings account may be a more suitable alternative as it has more flexible options when it comes to withdrawals and deposits.

Term Deposit Reviews

ANZ Term Deposit review
Overall 10/10
Great to deal with.

Investing my money in a safe and secure way is my number one priority. A Term Deposit was the obvious choice. The bank I chose is the one that I have been dealing with for a number of years. They always obtain the best interest rate for me and will remind me when the term that I selected previously is nearly due. I don't need to book an appointment to see the clerk and the staff are always very friendly and helpful.
