Triple Access ISA Issue 2

Triple Access ISA

What is the interest rate?

Your rate depends on how many times you take money during the Account Year. After you take money out 4 times, the lower rate applies for the rest of the Account Year.

The Account Year is the 12 months from the date you opened the account up until the day before the account anniversary. After that, it’s each 12 month period that begins on the anniversary of the day you opened the account.

Withdrawals Interest rate AER/tax-free (variable)
3 or fewer 0.50%
4 or more 0.05%

Receiving your interest

  • We work out your interest daily. This is then paid into your account yearly (at the end of the day before each anniversary of your account opening).
  • You can choose to have interest paid to you by having it added to this account, or by asking us to pay it into a different Nationwide current account or savings account (as long as it is possible to make interest payments into that account) or a current account with another building society or bank.

Can Nationwide change the interest rate?

Yes, the rates are variable. That means we can change them, up or down.

The following sections of our Cash ISA General Terms and Conditions explain when we can do this, and how we’ll let you know:

  • ‘Variation of your interest rate and other account terms and conditions’
  • ‘How will we tell you about interest rate changes?’

You can also check our current rates in your branch, or online at
