Key features

The Teachers Mutual Bank Term Deposit currently offers two different rates depending on how long you're willing to stash your money away for. For instance, on deposits between $1,000 and $499,999 you'll be able to receive an interest rate of: 

  • 0.80%: For terms between 6-11 months
  • 0.90%: For terms between 12-36 months

Plus, if you are and Edvest member or Rewards Package Member, you will receive a rate 0.05% higher than the advertised rates above. On the flip side, non-members will receive a rate 0.25% lower. 

One great feature about the Teachers Mutual Bank Term Deposit is that you do have the option of having your interest paid to another bank account. 

Automatic rollover is a feature of this term deposit, if you’re happy to let it roll over into a new term. However, if you want to close your term deposit, get access to your lump sum again and collect your interest, you will need to inform Teachers Mutual Bank before your term deposit matures. It always pays to have a plan in place with a term deposit!

And while early withdrawals are not recommended with term deposits, if you do want to make a withdrawal before the maturity date, you’ll need to give Teachers Mutual Bank 31 days notice.

Who is it good for

The Teachers Mutual Bank Term Deposit could be a great choice for Aussies within the education sector who want to want to be rewarded for their savings, while being a part of a member owned institution rather than a regular bank. To be eligible for this product you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident who currently or previously worked within the education sector (or a family member of a Teachers Mutual Bank member).

Any catches

If you are thinking about opening a term deposit, remember that if you decide you want to make a withdrawal, you will need to provide 31 days notice and you’ll lose out on interest.
