Important Information about your KBC Deposit Account

  • Demand Deposit Account

    Your funds are available when you need them. Interest is paid twice yearly.

    Fixed Term Account

    Please be aware that if we receive ministerial approval and your fixed term account matures after the transfer to Bank of Ireland, your account will transfer with the same maturity date and the amount of interest you will earn will remain the same until that maturity date.
     
    Should your account transfer we will write to you with further updates. When considering your options please be aware of the Deposit Guarantee Scheme limits if you already have eligible deposits with Bank of Ireland.
    For further information regarding the Deposit Guarantee Scheme or for information about accounts maturing prior to transferring to Bank of Ireland, please see our Frequently Asked Questions above.
    The Standard Fixed Rate Deposit Account does not permit any access to funds prior to the maturity date. In exceptional circumstances, KBC Bank Ireland may at its sole discretion and subject to reasonable conditions permit a withdrawal from an account before the maturity date.
    Unless we receive instruction(s) from you on or before the maturity date, the full balance in the account will be reinvested in a similar fixed term product at the prevailing interest rate for that product on that date. If on the maturity date there is no similar fixed term product available, the full balance in the account will be reinvested in our Standard Demand Deposit account earning the then prevailing Standard Demand Deposit Account interest rate.
    If you are permitted to make an exceptionsal withdrawal from the account before the end of the term, the amount of interest earned will be less than if the deposit had been left intact for the full duration of the term.
