Set up your term deposit online
Choose a term that suits you, then transfer your chosen amount (minimum $1,000) from your linked bank account into your term deposit. Your linked account can be with Bankwest or another financial institution.
Once your term deposit matures
You have seven days’ grace period to decide whether you want to withdraw your funds or reinvest them. If you do nothing by the end of your grace period, your funds will be automatically reinvested at the same term at the rate applicable at the time of maturity.
If your situation changes
Changes aimed at strengthening the banking system mean we require 31 days' notice if you want to withdraw your funds before the maturity date. This can also affect the interest that we pay you. You can still access your money at maturity and during the grace period.
