6Are term deposits safe?

Term deposits are among some of the lowest risk investment options available. Not only are you guaranteed a fixed rate of interest for the term of your deposit, but your investment amount is also insured by the Australian Government for balances of up to $250,000.

7What does it mean to invest in a term deposit?

Term deposits are a form of cash investment. As an investor, you choose the term of the deposit with MyState and deposit a cash amount, usually of $5,000 or more into a dedicated account. It works like a savings account only you are not able to access your cash investment until the term matures unless you seek and your financial institution agree to break the term deposit agreement (financial penalties apply). In return, you receive a fixed rate of interest for the term of that deposit, paid at maturity or throughout the term of the investment, depending on the terms and conditions of your agreement. Use our online term deposit calculator to discover how much income you could make from a term deposit with MyState.

Term deposits can be great ways to store wealth and still make your money work for you. If you’re looking for a secure investment option to help you save for a property or other large asset, a term deposit can help you manage your money until you’re ready to use it and make you a little income at the same time. For example, for a balance of $50,000 at 0.75% p.a. deposited for 36 months, you can expect to make $1,133 in interest income if paid at maturity. Term deposits allow you to automatically roll your money into a new term as the old term matures, helping you build reliable and secure investment income on your terms.

8Can you keep putting money into a term deposit?

Term deposits are restricted accounts for the duration of the term you have chosen. You are not able to deposit or withdraw from your term deposit account before maturity. While you may not be able to increase your investment capital throughout the term of your investment, you instead know exactly what kind of return you will make on term deposits before you open your account. Use our online term deposit calculator to measure how much you could make on a 3 month, 6 month or 12 month term deposit with MyState Bank.
