How term deposits work

If you’ve received a lump sum of money you’re keen to put away, or you’re saving for something big, a term deposit might be suitable for you.

It can be an ideal way to save for a specific goal, as it enables you get a guaranteed return based on the amount you invest and the interest rate on the day you open your term deposit.

Leaving your money in a transaction account generally earns you little or no interest. You may also be tempted to spend it. Instead, consider putting those funds away for a set period of your choice that pays you a guaranteed return at the end.

Whether you want to put down a deposit on a new home, buy a car or start a family, a term deposit could help you achieve your goals faster.

It's important to think carefully when choosing your term duration as you need to provide 31 days' notice1 if you want to access the money earlier than the selected term2. If you choose to continue your term deposit at maturity (rolling-over), the interest rate on the day the roll-over occurs will apply, this may be different to the interest rate for your initial term. Talk to a financial adviser to see what kind of saving strategy works best for you.

Choose the right term deposit 

For instance, we currently offer:

% pa  for deposits over $25,000 for a term of 6 months
% pa  for deposits over $25,000 for a term of 12 months
% pa  for deposits over $25,000 for a term of 5 years

50% to 75% 1.75% pa
75% to 90% 1.25% pa
90% or more 0.75% pa

If the original interest rate, before any adjustment is made, is less that or equal to the applicable interest rate adjustment percentage, no interest will be paid.

How can I choose when my term deposit matures?

You can provide AMP with maturity instructions while applying for your term deposit. We may also write to you before your term deposit matures to confirm your instructions. The length of the term can vary from one month to five years. The interest rate will change depending on factors including how much you are depositing, the term you select and how often you choose to have interest paid. Please check out the full range of term deposits and interest rates.

What are the fees

There are no ongoing account management fees. If you want to access your money before the end of your term, interest rate adjustment may apply. Read our Deposit products fees and charges guide for more information.

Account Information 

How do I access my account information after applying for a term deposit?

Your term deposit investment certificate will be issued on the day the account is opened. It contains your term deposit details including your term deposit account number and rate and should be received in standard postal times. 

Once your Term Deposit has been established, you will be sent a letter by standard post which contains your account information. If you have also opted to receive electronic communications, you will also receive an email with partial account information when your Term Deposit is established. This email does not include your full account number.

How can I change my maturity instructions or reinvest my term deposit?

You can fill out the Term Deposit reinvestment or change of instructions form and send it back to us. Please see our Terms and Conditions for more information. 

What if I am in hardship and need to break my term deposit?

If you are in hardship, you can fill out the Hardship Assistance Information form and we will review on a case by case basis. If we approve the request, you do not have to provide us with 31 days’ notice of early withdrawal, and there may be Interest Rate Adjustments.

I have just opened a term deposit, why can’t I register for internet banking?

After registering for a term deposit, an account number will be generated and provided to you separately in the mail by post. You can then use that account number and your mobile number to register for internet banking.

Can I open a joint bank account?

Yes. Joint accounts can be set up during the application process. Joint account holders can individually or jointly transact and make changes to the account.

Can I withdraw funds from my term deposit account?

Funds may be withdrawn on maturity and will be electronically paid to the nominated bank account. If no instructions are received by the maturity date, your term deposit will automatically roll over for the same term at the applicable interest rate offered on that maturity date.

Interest Payments 

When will I receive interest payments from my term deposit?

Depending on the term, interest payment frequency can be monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, annually or at maturity. 


How do I make deposits to my term deposit account?

For term deposits, you may deposit funds into your account only at the time your account is opened, or when you elect to roll your term deposit over at the maturity date. Other than at these times, you cannot make any additional deposits to a term deposit. Read our Deposit products terms and conditions for more information.

When is my external account debited after opening my term deposit?

The day you receive your confirmation email is the day we attempt to pull funds from your external account. Please make sure that there are sufficient funds for the transaction to be successful.

What if my account doesn’t have the funds available when you attempt to direct debit?

The transaction will be dishonoured, at which point the funds are returned and your term deposit account is closed. Please make sure that there are sufficient funds for the transaction to be successful. If it is not successful, the interest rate may change.
