What happens when savings interest rates decrease?

The interest rate for your savings account might decrease for a number of reasons, you might have a fixed term product that is coming to an end, your rate may be variable and therefore can change at any time or it may be linked to changes in the Bank of England Base Rate. 

When the interest rate on your savings account decreases we will tell you about the change, in writing, within 14 days of the change taking place. 

Take a look at our Terms and Conditions for Savers for a more detailed explanation.
