Key features

If you’ve been considering opening a term deposit with a mutual bank and are a fire or emergency services employee, you may want to consider the Firefighters Mutual Bank Term Deposit. Depending on the length of term you choose (3 months to 3 years), you’ll be able to earn up to 0.90% in interest on balances between $1,000 and $499,999. 

The good news is, if you are an Edvest member or Rewards Package member, you will receive a 0.05% higher interest rate than what is advertised. However for non-members, they receive 0.05% less than the advertised rate. 

And since mutual banks are all for their members, with the Firefighters Mutual Bank Term Deposit, you won’t pay any account keeping fees. While you will need to become a member in order to open the term deposit, you do have the option to have your interest paid to another bank. 

If you ever need to make a withdrawal before the term deposit reaches maturity, keep in mind you will need to provide Firefighters Mutual Bank with 31 days notice, which might not be ideal if you need the money ASAP.
