Is your bond about to mature?

You’ve got different options when your bond matures, and it’s important you let us know what you decide. Find out what your options are, and let us know your decision on our Fixed Rate Bond Maturity Options page.


When your bond matures

When your bond matures, we’ll transfer your account balance into a Fixed Rate Bond Maturity account. You’ll be able to access your money in this account whenever you like.

You can find out more in the account’s terms and conditions.


Joint bonds

One signature

If your joint bond only requires one account holder’s signatures, either of you can let us know what you’d like to do when your bond matures. If you choose to reinvest in a new bond, that bond will be set up in the same joint names with only one signature needed to operate it.

Both signatures

If your joint bond requires both account holders’ signatures, you’ll need to complete the paper maturity instruction form in your maturity pack. This will need to be signed by all the account holders and returned to us at:

Dept NW3001
Nationwide Building Society
Swindon
SN38 1NW

You could also return it to your local branch.


Lost your bond certificate?

If you’ve lost your certificate, or it’s been stolen, you can let us know:


When your e-bond matures

When your bond matures, we’ll transfer your account balance into a Fixed Rate e-Bond Maturity account. You’ll be able to access your money in this account whenever you like.

You can find out more in the account’s terms and conditions.


Joint e-bonds

We’ll send the email that explains your options at maturity to the email address that you used to register your account.
