Following the Bank of England’s decision to raise the Bank Rate by 0.25% to 1.00% on 5 May 2022, Windfall Bond and Tracker Savings Bond rates will increase by 0.25% from 1 June 2022. We are reviewing our other variable savings rates and will notify customers of any interest rate increase on their account. Tracker mortgages will change on 25 June 2022 and we will write to customers individually with revised payment details where the new rate exceeds the minimum rate (or ‘floor’) already applying to their mortgage.

If you already use our Online Service, you do not need to register again to view the account once it has been opened.
To transfer your existing Cash ISA to the Family Building Society, you will need to complete and send us both a Flexible ISA Application Form AND a Cash ISA Transfer Authority Form. We will then notify your current ISA provider so that the transfer can begin in line with their terms and conditions. The process can take up to 15 working days from receipt of an application form and transfer request form to the new account being opened. It varies depending on the speed with which your existing ISA manager responds to our request.
