Looking to save for something in particular or maybe just for a rainy day? The Monthly Super Saver offers you the flexibility to save variable amounts each month and to access your money without notice!

Is this account suitable for me?
This account is suitable for someone who can save a sum of money each and every month. It is not suitable for someone requiring a fixed rate of interest or someone requiring regular withdrawals. It is only available to someone living in the LE and NN post code areas and who is a UK resident. For under 18s the account must be opened by an adult in the capacity of Trustee.

How and when is interest paid?
Interest is paid annually on 31 December. Your money will start earning interest for you from the date of receipt of your funds. You can have the interest added to your Monthly Super Saver account, paid into a bank account or transferred to another Society account (not applicable to all account types). If you choose to have your interest added to the account it will be subject to the same withdrawal conditions as the capital. We want to reward you for saving on a regular basis - that's why you will be earning one of our best rates of interest. An interest rate bonus is paid for a period of one year from the date the account is opened.
Rates shown exclude the introductory bonus of 0.5% gross payable for one year

How much can I invest?
The account can be opened with any amount between £10 and £3,000 and, once you start to save, you can save any sum you wish between £10 and £3,000 per month. You may only ever open two Monthly Super Saver accounts, either solely or jointly, with a combined maximum of £3,000 per month, and provided that each individual deposit is not less than £10. You are not committed to a fixed amount - you can save a different amount each month if you prefer. You must however make one investment per month to enjoy the benefit of a Monthly Super Saver interest rate. The minimum balance at any time is £10. The maximum balance is £50,000.

How can I pay money in?
You can pay cash and cheques into your account at any of our branches or at our agency (listed here), or you can post your passbook and a cheque to our Head Office address. Cheques must be made payable to the account holder and not to the Society. You can also transfer funds from another account with the Society by post or at a branch, and transfer from an account with a bank or another building society. To do this you will need our sort code 20-49-08 and our account number 70608386 and also your Monthly Super Saver account number, which should be inserted in the roll or reference number field.

How can I access my account?
