Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re applying for a Term Deposit with two or more applicants, any one of the applicants will be able to operate the account on their own (also known as ‘Either to sign’ operation). This means that any account holder can transact on the account without the permission of other account holders.

If you’d like a different mode of operation applied to your new account, please contact us on 13 95 00 (Mon – Fri, 9:30am – 5pm AEST) to discuss your needs.

During your application, you can specify for one of the following options to take place on maturity:

  • Reinvest your original balance and interest earned
  • Transfer the balance to your linked Everyday Saver transaction account
  • Decide later

If you want to decide later, you can contact us prior to the date of maturity to let us know what you’d like to do on maturity. These are your options:

  • If you’d like to reinvest your Term Deposit balance, there’s no need for you to do anything. Your funds will be automatically reinvested for the same term on the date your Term Deposit matures.
  • Partially reinvest - You can choose an amount you’d like to reinvest, and the term you’d like it invested for. We’ll put any funds not reinvested directly into your Bank of Sydney Transaction account.
  • Increase your investment - You can add additional funds to your investment when your Term Deposit matures.Change the term - At maturity you can reinvest your funds for a new term of between 1 to 13 months.
  • Change the term - at maturity you can reinvest your funds for a new term between 1 to 13 months.
  • You can send us instructions via secure message within Internet Banking, or by calling us on 13 95 00 (Mon – Fri, 9:30am – 5pm AEST).
