Description of the financial products Below provides an overview of the financial products offered by MyLife MyFinance. Term Deposit account Description A Term Deposit is a financial product that enables you to invest for a fixed term ranging from 31 days to 24 months at an interest rate fixed for that term. The interest is calculated daily and paid either monthly to another account or compounded within the investment to be paid at maturity. Different interest rates may apply depending on whether interest is to be paid monthly or at maturity. Please refer to our Interest Rates Schedule. Investments ranging from as little as $5,000 are accepted. Depending on the term and rate, other minimum investment amount requirements may apply. It provides access to your funds upon maturity. If maturity falls on a weekend or a public holiday, the maturity date will occur on the following business day.
Costs There are no monthly access fees or transaction fees associated with this account. Other fees such as dishonour fees may apply. Please refer to our Fees and Charges Schedule. Risks Your deposit is invested at a fixed rate of interest and for a fixed term. Publicly available interest rates may rise (or alternatively fall) during the term of your investment. Therefore, please consider your requirements carefully. Should you wish to redeem the deposit before maturity, your request may or may not be approved at our discretion. If approved, an interest adjustment will apply. This interest rate adjustment is a reduction in the interest rate to 0.75% per annum calculated daily for the length of the term already served. If the term served is less than one month, there will be no interest paid on the amount withdrawn. If you may need to access your funds during the investment term then this product may not be suitable for you. If the balance goes below the stated minimum amount the account will be closed with funds transferred to your Access account (which may pay a lower rate of interest). Prior to the maturity date, we will write to you seeking your instructions regarding payment or re-investment of your funds. Should you not respond, the funds will be re-invested for the same term at the current applicable interest rate. A cooling off period of seven calendar days from the date of maturity applies.
