Part of Options ISA
What is the Options ISA?
The Options ISA is a stocks and shares ISA that gives you four different, tax-efficient options to save lump sums, regular amounts or both. You can pick just one option, split your money across several or put money into different options, at different times.
So, whether you’re looking for a fixed rate, total security, potentially better returns or a combination of all of these, you can get them all with our Options ISA plan.
Why Anytime Access?
This option is for savers who want a money back guarantee at all times. It’s safe and secure, plus any returns you make are also protected.
To open it, we only require a £40 initial lump sum or regular payments of £40 every month. It’s more suited for those who wish to save over a shorter period of time.
It’s worth noting though, the growth potential with Anytime Access is lower than with any of the other options.
Money back guarantee
You can always access at least what you put in and any growth is also protected.
Small minimum investment required
We only require a £40 initial lump sum or a £40 regular monthly premium.
Transfers, top ups and changes
You can change or stop a monthly regular payment at any time and transfers from previous tax years are also allowed.
Am I eligible?
Yes, if you’re a UK resident. The minimum age for opening a plan is 18 and the maximum age you can add money is 85. You will also need to be a serving/retired police employee, Special or a member of their family.
Partners and wider family of the above, including parents, brothers and sisters, children and grandchildren, nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters-in-law and parents-in-law are also eligible.
How do I save?
You can make regular monthly payments via Direct Debit, alternatively you can make a one-off payment by card, bank or building society account transfer, cheque (not online) or ISA transfer.
