Guaranteed Five Year Savings Plan

The Guaranteed Five Year Savings Plan has low minimum premiums, a short fixed term and a guaranteed return. After just five years your plan matures with a guaranteed payout.

This plan is very simple. Save a regular amount for five years and get a return that’s guaranteed.

  • minimum premium of just £20 a month
  • easy deduction from salary or by direct debit
  • you know exactly what you’ll get back after five years (or if you have to cash in early)
  • ‘Rolling Plan’ gives you a pay-out every year (after the first five years)

NOTE: The terms for 2017 are different to the 2014-2016 terms – see “What will I get back?” for details.

Rolling Plan

Many of our members also choose to start new plans every year. This is known as the Rolling Five Year Savings Plan and means that after five years you will start receiving a pay-out every single year – ideal for regular annual events like Christmas, school fees or holidays. See the Rolling Plan FAQ below for full details.

What will I get back?

As an example, under this plan a regular premium of £50 per month (£600 per year, £3,000 in total) will be guaranteed a return of £3,050 after five years.

This is effectively your total premiums paid PLUS a month’s premiums.

NOTE: For all plans that began before January 1st 2017 the guaranteed return in the example above will be £3,100.

You can see in the graphic below an illustration of the returns.

When can I take money out?

When the Guaranteed Five Year Savings Plan reaches the end of the five year period we will contact you to make arrangements for you to receive the maturity value. You can cash in the Guaranteed Five Year Savings Plan completely at any time for a ‘surrender value’ but you may get back less than you paid in. We will not permit partial surrenders.

On taking money out of the plan there may be tax implications.

  • after five years your first plan will mature paying you a GUARANTEED £1,220 in good time to help you with the Christmas credit card bill.
  • early the following January your second plan will mature paying you another GUARANTEED £1,220 – Christmas sorted again!
  • and every January thereafter you will receive a pay-out for as long as you wish to carry the Rolling Five Year Savings Plan on.
