Withdrawal of 90 Day Notice Account

We’re always reviewing our range of Savings products so that they’re simple to use and easy to understand.

Following the launch of our new 35 Day Notice account, we’re removing our 90 Day Notice Account from sale with immediate effect. We’ll honour any new postal applications for this account, provided they were dated before Thursday 29 February 2024 and are received by Friday 15 March 2024.

If you’re an existing 90 Day Notice Account Member you can continue to use your account as normal, including making additional deposits up to the maximum total balance per Member of £500,000.

Listening to Our Members

We’re adding this new notice account to our savings range in response to feedback from Members and changes in savers’ activity that we’ve seen across the market.

Pauline Crawford, our Savings Product Manager said:

Our new 35 Day Notice Account meets the growing trend of people wanting to move from an easy access account to one that has a better rate of interest, but still provides flexibility to get at their savings quickly if they need to cover unexpected expenses.

This change follows several recent improvements we’ve made to our product range. These include changes to our Regular Saver account to allow more Members to save more flexibly, and an increase in our Cash ISA interest rate.

Pauline said:

Every Ecology saver supports our goal of creating a fair society in a sustainable world. We’ll continue to review our products to make them as attractive as possible to help more people save for their future, while making a positive difference to our planet.
