Co-operative Bank Maturity Fixed Term Deposits

Available exclusively for Co-operative Bank customers whose Fixed Term Deposits are about to mature.

The Britannia Maturity Fixed Rate Bond is no longer available

If you held a Britannia Fixed Rate Bond, your account was transferred to a Co-operative Bank Fixed Term Deposit. You should have received notification of the change and details of your new account in the post.

You'll find information below on your options for when your account matures.

To apply online you'll need the sort code and account number for your Co-operative Bank Fixed Term Deposit. You'll find this in online banking, the mobile banking app, or in your welcome letter.

To apply by post you can return the Britannia Maturity Options Form received in your maturity pack. Just quote your Britannia account number. We'll reinvest your funds in the equivalent Co-operative Bank Maturity Fixed Term Deposit.

Your Fixed Term Deposit with The Co-operative Bank is about to mature — now what?

If you’ve already got a Fixed Term Deposit with us that’s about to mature, you might be thinking about what to do with your funds.

If you’re wanting to reinvest all or just some of it, one of our Maturity Fixed Term Deposits could be an option for you, with interest rates of up to 4.56% gross / AER (annually).

Guiding you through the maturity process

  • Below, you can find out more about the maturity pack that you’ll receive in the post before your account matures
  • You can also see the full range of maturity options available to you, and learn more about our Co-operative Bank Maturity Fixed Term Deposits
  • If you decide that reinvesting with us is the right option for you, you can apply to reinvest using our online form, by post, or by visiting us in branch
  • If you choose not to reinvest, you’ve got the option to withdraw your funds once your account has matured.

Our price promise

We’ll offer an interest rate guarantee if you decide to take out a Maturity Fixed Term Deposit with us. This means that if our rates increase or decrease between the date we send out your maturity pack and the date your original Fixed Term Deposit matures, we'll give you the better rate — as long as we receive your reinvestment intentions before the maturity date.

Please note, if the interest rate on this page is different to the one in your maturity pack, you’ll automatically receive the higher rate if you decide to apply.

Your maturity pack

If you already have a Fixed Term Deposit with us, we'll post you a maturity pack about 4 weeks before its maturity date. In this pack, you’ll find:

  • The maturity date of your Fixed Term Deposit
  • The current balance of your account
  • Your maturity options, including interest rates on offer
  • A printed form if you'd prefer to submit your application to us by post.

Annual interest

If you choose annual interest, you'll receive it on the first business day after each anniversary of the account opening date. Annual interest can either be paid into this account or another account of your choice — either with us or another provider.

Monthly interest

If you choose monthly interest, you’ll receive it on the monthly anniversary of the account opening date. If this date doesn't fall on a business day, it will be paid on the next business day. Monthly interest will be paid into another account of your choice — either with us or another provider.

No — the interest rate on your account is fixed and will not change during the 1, 2, or 3 year term.
