The Details

A NoticeSaver account requires you to provide 60 days notice each time you wish to make a withdrawal, this allows you to grow your savings, and ‘harvest’ the funds when you need it.

The notice period is the amount of time you have to wait each time you wish to withdraw funds from your NoticeSaver.

To give notice, you just log in and set up a transfer for the amount you'd like to withdraw. Your transfer will automatically happen on the next business day after the 60 day notice period has passed. The best part is you'll still be earning the NoticeSaver interest rate right up until your money is withdrawn.

You can cancel a notice instruction any time up until the last business day before the transfer is due.

You can't access NoticeSaver funds until 60 days after you have given a withdrawal notice. The only exception is if you are facing financial hardship. If you don't think you can wait 60 days, another one of our great products such as PremiumSaver might suit you better. 

Opening a NoticeSaver is easy. Existing customers can log in and open a NoticeSaver with just a few clicks.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does NoticeSaver compare to a Term Deposit?

Share

NoticeSaver is a savings account with a variable interest rate, a Term Deposit is a fixed deposit with a fixed rate and period.

There are several key differences:

  • The NoticeSaver interest rate is variable - a Term Deposit rate is fixed.
  • NoticeSaver offers access to your money after the required notice period - a Term Deposit has a fixed period.
  • NoticeSaver allows you to deposit money into the account whenever you like - a Term Deposit does not.

What if I need funds in a hurry but haven't given 60 days’ notice?

Share

To make a withdrawal from NoticeSaver you will need to load a transfer request and wait the 60 day notice period before receiving your funds. For this reason, we suggest that you keep some funds in your RaboSaver account in case you need them in a hurry.

If you are suffering from financial hardship, you can apply for the early release of your funds by completing our Financial Hardship Declaration and providing evidence of the hardship. We will consider your application and advise you if it has been accepted.

See the Financial Hardship Declaration for examples of hardship and the type of evidence required.
