A notice savings account typically offers a better return on your savings, compared to easy access accounts. Our notice savings accounts usually require a notice period of either 35 or 90 days, but this may differ subject to account availability.

A notice savings account is likely to be the best fit for you if you don’t need access to your money in the short term. For customers that require easier access to their savings, an easy access account could be the right fit for you. 

It is quick and easy to open and manage your account with Family Building Society. You may be able to apply online, by post or at our Epsom branch to open one of our notice savings accounts below, depending on the product selected.
