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.

What type of interest rate can I earn with a 1 month term deposit?

Although term deposits are designed to give you a higher interest rate on your money, how high or low the interest rate offered is, generally depends on how short or long the term is. Longer terms usually have the highest interest rates, while interest rates for short term deposits tend to be lower. With that in mind, a one month term deposit will probably offer a lower interest rate than a two year term. Head to Mozo’s Term Deposits Interest Rates information page to keep up to date on current term deposit interest rates.

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.

Ease of use but noncompetitive interest rates

Pros are that it's simple to use and understand. They do give loyalty interest rate bonus. However, interest rates are too low.
