The Online ISA allows you to manage your cash ISA savings online. Once your account is open you can split your savings across different types of products (fixed rate with different terms or variable rate products), or put it all into a single product offered within the Online ISA. When your Online ISA is open and you have logged in, you’ll be able to make deposits, transfer in other ISAs, open new products and move money between products (providing this is allowed in the Summary Box).

You can also view your personal details, view important documentation related to your ISA and view and create statements. You can change your residential address, email address and telephone numbers by accessing your account online. If any other personal details need updating, you can request these changes by sending a secure message.

If any other details need updating you can contact customer services by sending a secure message.

A Holding Account is automatically set up for you when you open the Online ISA. You can use the Holding Account to consolidate funds before paying into a product, or to distribute one lump sum deposit across multiple products of your choice within the Online ISA.

If you hold a Fixed Rate product, at the end of the fixed term we will automatically close the product and move the value, along with any interest earned, to your Holding Account. You will then be able to move the money into other products or make withdrawals to your Nominated Account (where the money will lose its tax advantages).

Consolidating funds

Some products within the Online ISA only accept a single deposit when funding them (such as Fixed Rate products). If you have ISAs with several different providers, you could transfer all the funds to the Holding Account. This would then offer you a single, larger sum that could be paid as a single deposit.

Splitting funds

If you wished to use a lump sum deposit to pay for the opening of one or multiple products, you have the option of paying this into the Holding Account. You can then split the funds in the Holding Account to fund the opening of one or more products. For example, if you had £1,100 available, you could split this according to your needs, and choose to pay in £100 into product A, £500 into product B, and £500 into product C.

Please note, the products or rates of interest on offer can be changed or withdrawn at any time. If you are using the Holding Account to consolidate or split your ISA savings before opening a specific product, there is a risk that the product or rate of interest you wanted will no longer be available by the time any funds are received.

The interest earned in the Online ISA is tax-free. Tax-free means the interest paid will be free from UK Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax. The tax advantages depend on your individual circumstances and the tax treatment of your ISA may change in the future.

When applying for the Online ISA, you'll need to set up a Nominated Account. This is usually your current account. Any payments out (if you make a withdrawal or close your Online ISA) will be sent to this account. The account you nominate must be a UK personal bank or building society account in your name (sole or joint).

When opening your ISA we’ll verify your Nominated Account details electronically. If we can't verify the Nominated Account, we’ll ask you to provide further supporting information, e.g. a current statement.

Please note we can only pay funds out to a Nominated Account that has been verified. If your account has not been verified when we receive your withdrawal request, this will delay funds being sent to you.

If you wish to change your Nominated Account, please log in to your Online ISA and send us a secure message with your new details. Any time we receive new details these will need to be verified before we are able to make withdrawal payments to the account.

We do not charge for any of our standard services (as described in the Online ISA Terms and Conditions).

If we agree to provide you with a non-standard service, such as issuing you a paper copy of your annual statement, we may make a reasonable charge for it. We will tell you the amount of our charges before we provide you with any non-standard service.

If you close a Fixed Rate product during its fixed term, a Breakage Charge will be applied as detailed in the Terms and Conditions. The Breakage Charge will also be applied to a Fixed Rate product if we need to close the product during its fixed term because you've asked to close or transfer your Online ISA. If a Breakage Charge is applied, it will be deducted from any interest earned on the product but if not enough interest has been earned to cover the Breakage Charge, it will be deducted from the balance of the product. The Breakage Charge will be calculated assuming a 365 day year.

Please note, the Breakage Charge will not be applied if you request to close a Fixed Rate product in the first 14 days of it having been opened.

Charges may change in the future. For more details about charges and changes to charges, please see the Key Information Pack, which contains the Terms and Conditions of the Online ISA.

You’ll be able to see the current interest rates that apply to your products on the ‘ISA Overview’ page. For more information on how your interest rate works, please refer to the Key Information Pack and Summary Box saved in your 'My Documents' area.

You can also find the current range of Post Office Money ISAs (and interest rates) available by visiting www.postoffice.co.uk/money.

Opening the Online ISA:

Please be aware, if we’ve asked for proof of identity or any other information before we can open your account, then no interest will be earned until we’ve received the required information.

Once your ISA is open your payments will start to earn interest as detailed below:

  • Debit card - will start to earn interest two working days after your payment is authorised (e.g. deposits authorised on a Saturday will start earning interest on a Tuesday).
  • Cheques - will start to earn interest from the day we receive the cheque. Please note, we only accept deposits by cheque on working days.
  • A transfer from a cash ISA - will start to earn interest from the earlier of either the date on the cheque or the date the electronic transfer payment is sent to us from your old provider (depending on the method of transfer), but no later than the 8th working day after we received your transfer instruction (as long as it was subsequently accepted).
  • A transfer from a stocks and shares ISA - will start to earn interest from the working day we receive the transfer cheque and valid Transfer History Form from your old provider.
  • A transfer from another Post Office Money ISA - If you are transferring from an existing Post Office Money cash ISA, the transfer value will start to earn interest 2 working days after your application or transfer instruction is accepted. For a transfer from a Post Office Money stocks and shares ISA this would be 3 working days after your application or transfer instruction is accepted.
  • Funding from another product within the Online ISA - on the same day that it is processed and/or all relevant transactions have completed, whichever is later. Transactions include ISA transfers, moving money between products and withdrawals.

Please note, working days do not include a Saturday, Sunday or English Bank Holidays.

Please note this information is available in the Summary Box, which are available before you apply for a product. A copy of the Summary Box can also be found for any products you hold in your Online ISA in ‘My Documents’.

Holding Account

Funds in the Holding Account will earn a variable rate of interest. Interest will be calculated daily and paid annually into the Holding Account on 20th March each year.

Easy Access products

Funds in the Easy Access product will earn a variable rate of interest. A fixed bonus may also be paid as detailed in the Summary Box. Interest is calculated daily and paid annually on 20th March each year. Interest will also be paid on closure of your product.

Fixed Rate products

During the fixed term, funds in a Fixed Rate product will earn a fixed rate of interest. Interest is calculated daily and will be added to the Fixed Rate products on the anniversary of the start date each year and also on the date the fixed term ends.

After the end of the fixed term the full value of the Fixed Rate product, including interest received, will be paid into the Holding Account, which earns a variable rate of interest.

If an Easy Access product you hold has a fixed bonus, it will be paid as detailed in the Summary Box. We will notify you by secure message up to 14 days before the bonus rate ends on any Easy Access products you hold, where your account has a balance of £100 or more.

When a fixed bonus comes to an end the product will only earn the variable rate of interest.

We will notify you by secure message up to 14 days before any Fixed Rate products in your account are due to end, where your account has a balance of £100 or more.

At the end of the fixed term the product will close and your funds, including any interest earned, will be moved into your Holding Account within your Online ISA. You can then manage these funds from the Holding Account by choosing whether to reinvest into another Fixed Rate product, move it into an Easy Access product, spread it across these products or withdraw it.

Any interest that has been paid will be included in the current balance of each product it has been paid to. Your annual statement will show any interest that has been paid into the ISA and you can create a new statement at any time by logging into your account. If you have any other queries please send us a secure message.

For more information about how savings in the Online ISA are protected, please read the Deposit Information Sheet. This sets out details of how your money is protected with Bank of Ireland UK, who is the 'deposit taker' for the Online ISA.

This is also what happens if we receive a transfer cheque from another ISA provider. Please note that any money you hold in other accounts with NatWest will count towards compensation limits.

You can pay in up to £20,000 between the different types of ISAs this tax year. (that's the period from 6th April to 5th April). For example, if you deposit £11,000 in a cash ISA with one provider, you can invest the remaining £9,000 ISA allowance into a different type of ISA with the same or another provider. You can only make deposits and/or invest in one of each type of ISA each tax year.

You can see your remaining subscription allowance for the current tax year (subject to other types of ISA contributions) on your 'ISA Overview’ page.

Once you’re logged in to your Online ISA you can make deposits into either a new product (when available) or into existing products held in your Online ISA (if allowed in the Summary Box) by debit card payment or by cheque.

The minimum deposit amount can be found in the Key Information Pack or the Summary Box, which are available to view in your 'My Documents' area.

You can see your remaining subscription allowance for the current tax year (subject to other types of ISA contributions) on your 'ISA Overview’ page.

You cannot currently transfer funds directly from another Post Office Money savings account into the Online ISA unless it is another ISA you already hold with Post Office Money. If funds are withdrawn from the Post Office Money savings account, you can then pay in to the Online ISA by cheque or debit card. Please be sure to check whether withdrawing funds from your existing Post Office Money savings account would incur any charges.

If you already have an existing cash or stocks and shares ISA with another provider you can transfer your savings into your Online ISA.

Transferring funds from a previous tax year's ISA will not affect your ISA limit for this tax year.

You can choose whether to use the transfer to pay in to an existing product (if additional transfers are allowed in the Summary Box), fund a new product or transfer the ISA into the Holding Account and then split your funds across the products of your choice.

Before making a decision to transfer your existing ISA to us you should check if your current provider will charge a fee.

Yes. You can transfer the value of your stocks and shares ISA to the Online ISA.

Please be aware that the Online ISA is a cash ISA. Once your stocks and shares ISA is transferred, these will become cash ISA funds.

Before making a decision to transfer your existing ISA to us you should check if your current provider will charge a fee.

Please note, there will be on-screen instructions provided when you request an ISA transfer, and you may need to print out relevant documents and send them to us by post.

No, we are currently not able to accept transfers from Innovative Finance or Lifetime ISAs.

Yes, if you have existing Post Office Money ISAs these can be transferred in the same way as any other ISA. When you are given the option to select how you wish to fund a new or existing product, select ISA transfer and then choose ‘Post Office’ as the provider and follow the on-screen instructions.

If you're unsure whether you'll be charged a fee for transferring your existing Post Office Money ISA, please contact us.

Yes, if you have an existing ISA provided by us (OneFamily) these can be transferred in the same way as any other ISA. When you are given the option to select how you wish to fund a new or existing product, select ISA transfer and then choose 'OneFamily' as the provider and follow the on-screen instructions.

When you complete the new product opening process or make an additional payment online you’ll be asked how you’d like to fund the product. From the drop down options select 'ISA Transfer' and press 'Next'.

The on-screen guidance will explain how to complete the transfer form. Please note, depending on which provider you are transferring funds from, you may need to print a paper form which you’ll be required to send through the post (to the address below):

Post Office Money Savings
PO Box 5179
Brighton
BN50 9UY

We’ll inform you when your transfer has completed.

Before making a decision to transfer your existing ISA to us you should check if your current provider will charge a fee.

Yes, you can select to open multiple products within the Online ISA (subject to product availability). You can open a new product with a deposit, transfer from another ISA provider or by moving money from another product held in your account (providing this is an option in the Summary Box). Before making a decision to transfer your existing ISA to us you should check if your current provider will charge a fee.

If you would like to split your ISA savings between products, or would like to consolidate funds from previous years’ ISAs before opening a product, you can choose to put your funds into the Holding Account.

You can then split the funds in the Holding Account to fund the opening of one or more products. For example, if you had £1,100 available, you could split this according to your needs, and choose to pay in £100 into product A, £500 into product B, and £500 into product C.

Please note, the products or rates of interest on offer can be changed or withdrawn at any time. If you are using the Holding Account to consolidate or split your ISA savings before opening a specific product, there is a risk that the product or rate of interest you wanted will no longer be available by the time any funds are received.

Yes. This is a key benefit of the Online ISA. When you open a new product, or pay in to an existing product, you’ll be given the option to move funds from an existing product within your Online ISA. If you select this option you’ll be presented with a list of your products which are available to move funds from.
Once you've logged in to your Online ISA you can select 'Open a New Product' from the menu at the top. This will then display the products that are available to you. Please be sure to check the product meets your requirements by carefully reading the Summary Box before selecting your choice. Press 'Next' at the bottom of the page and follow the on screen guidance from there.

Providing the product allows withdrawals (as detailed in the Summary Box), you can make a withdrawal to your Nominated Account for a minimum of £10, or the value of the product if it is lower.

The Online ISA does not have flexible features. This means that once withdrawn to your Nominated Account, your money will lose the tax advantages of ISAs and cannot be replaced within your Online ISA without affecting your annual ISA allowance. If you have already used your full allowance in a tax year, you will not be able to make further deposits into your Online ISA in that tax year, even if you’ve made a withdrawal from a product in your account.

Easy Access products may have a maximum number of withdrawals (including money movements) that can be made each tax year. Additionally, Fixed Rate products do not allow withdrawals. Further information on withdrawal restrictions can be found in the Summary Box.

If, having made the maximum number of withdrawals from an Easy Access product, you need further access to the money during the current tax year, or if you need to access money from a Fixed Rate product, you’ll need to close the product. If your request includes closing a Fixed Rate product which is in its fixed term, a breakage charge will be applied to that product, which will be detailed in the Terms and Conditions. For more information please see “Can I close a product in my Online ISA?” below.

If you are opening a new product, the number of withdrawals allowed is displayed in the product selection table and in the Summary Box, so you can make sure the features of the product suit your requirements.

Yes, you can request to close a product in your Online ISA at any time. Payments can either be sent to the Holding Account of your Online ISA, where the money can be moved to other products in your account, or to your Nominated Account, where the money will lose its tax advantages.

The Online ISA does not have flexible features. This means that once withdrawn to your Nominated Account, your money will lose the tax advantages of ISAs and cannot be replaced within your Online ISA without affecting your annual ISA allowance. If you have already used your full allowance in a tax year, you will not be able to make further deposits into your Online ISA in that tax year, even if you’ve made a withdrawal from a product in your account.

If your request includes closing a Fixed Rate product which is in its fixed term, a breakage charge will be applied to that product (as detailed in the Summary Box). Please note, the breakage charge will not be applied if you request to close the product within 14 days of it having opened. The details of any applicable Breakage Charge will also be confirmed before you complete your closure request.

You cannot close your Holding Account unless you transfer or close your entire Online ISA, although you can withdraw or move the money in it at any time.

You can request a withdrawal or to close a product by accessing your account online. You can either select the product you’d like to make the withdrawal or closure from on your ‘ISA Summary’ screen or you can select the ‘Withdrawals and closures’ area of your account.

Payments will normally appear in your Nominated Account within 4 working days of the day we send it.

If your withdrawal request includes funds from a recent deposit, we will not send your payment until the deposits have cleared and are available for withdrawal. Additionally, if your Nominated Account details haven’t been verified yet, or we’ve asked for identification, we’ll only be able to send your payment to you once we’ve received the proof we’ve asked for.

If we need verification of your Nominated Account details, we will need to receive proof of your account details before we can proceed. This means we’ll need you to send us a photocopy of one of the following from your bank, dated within the last three months, showing your name, the bank sort code and your account number:

  • A statement
  • An online statement
  • A letter from your bank

Finally, please write your Online ISA number on the back and post it to us at:

Yes. You can transfer your Online ISA in full to another ISA at any time. Partial transfers are not permitted. If you are transferring to another ISA provider, you will need to contact them to arrange the transfer. If you are internally transferring your Online ISA to a new or existing ISA provided by us (OneFamily), you will need to complete the relevant application or Transfer Instruction Form. You'll need to supply your Online ISA number, which can be found on the 'ISA Overview' area of your account. This will begin with the letter "A". Your new provider will use this as a roll/reference number. Please note your Online ISA does not have an account number or sort code.

If you decide to transfer your Online ISA while you have a Fixed Rate product in a fixed term a breakage charge will be applied to that product (as detailed in the Summary Box).

No. Partial transfers are not allowed and you cannot transfer individual products in your account. If you decide to transfer your Online ISA this means you'd need to transfer your entire account for the total value. If you transfer your Online ISA while you have money in a Fixed Rate product which is in its fixed term, a breakage charge will be applied to that product (as detailed in the Summary Box).

Yes, you have 14 days from the date your Online ISA opens to cancel your account. You can let us know you’d like to cancel by sending us a secure message. If you decide to cancel, your Online ISA and any products you’ve opened within it will be closed and you’ll receive a full refund of any deposits made plus tax-free interest. Any returned deposits will not be regarded as having been paid into the ISA, and so will not count towards your ISA allowance for the current tax year.

If you do not cancel within the 14-day cancellation period and request to close your Online ISA after this date, your money will no longer benefit from the tax advantages of an ISA. If you’ve paid in to your Online ISA in the same tax year that you close it, you won’t be able to pay money in to another cash ISA in the same tax year.

You cannot ‘cancel’ individual products you've opened within your Online ISA. This means that unless you cancel your entire Online ISA within the 14-day cancellation period, any deposits you’ve made into your product(s) will count towards your annual ISA allowance.

Although you can’t cancel individual products, you can request to close any product held within your Online ISA at any time. Some products will also allow you to take partial withdrawals from them. You can request a withdrawal or to close a product by logging into your Online ISA. Any associated withdrawal restrictions or Breakage Charges will apply. You can find information about these within your Summary Box.

Additionally, if you’ve opened a Fixed Rate product that has a Breakage Charge for closing it during its fixed term and change your mind, the Breakage Charge will be waived providing you request to close the product within 14 days of it having opened. If you change your mind after this date, the Breakage Charge will apply, as detailed in the Summary Box.

Once withdrawn your money will no longer benefit from the tax advantages of ISAs. If you decide to close your account and you’ve made deposits into your Online ISA in the tax year you close it, you will not be able to make deposits into another cash ISA until the next tax year.

If your request includes closing a Fixed Rate product which is in its fixed term, a Breakage Charge will be applied to that product, which will be detailed in the Summary Box. This will also be confirmed before you complete your closure request.

If you have not yet verified your Nominated Account details you will need to provide proof of your Nominated Account before we can proceed with your Online ISA closure. This means we’ll need you to send us a photocopy of one of the following from your bank, dated within the last three months, showing your name, the bank sort code and your account number:

  • A statement
  • An online statement
  • A letter from your bank

Exchange Tower
London
E14 9SR

0300 123 9123

*Our Customer Call Centre is UK based and open from 9am to 5pm weekdays. Calls to 0800 numbers are normally free from UK landlines and mobile phones. Calls may be recorded, monitored and used for training and compliance purposes.

There is a central European 'portal' which can redirect a complaint to the appropriate industry Ombudsman (eg Financial Ombudsman Service). This is aimed at helping EU residents who purchased a product online from a provider based in another EU country. It is always best to contact the product provider first but for further information go to http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/

To contact customer services please send us a secure message with your query. To send a secure message you'll need to log in to your Online ISA and select ‘Secure Messages’. Secure messages will be responded to within 48 hours. Please note, this timescale is based on working days (Mon – Fri), so if a message was sent on Friday night it’ll be considered as received on Monday morning. We’ll always aim to respond to your query at the earliest opportunity.

*Open 9am-5pm weekdays. Calls cost no more than calls to geographic numbers (01 or 02). Calls from landlines and mobiles are included in free call packages. Calls may be monitored and recorded for training purposes.

Your Online ISA webpages will only hold details of the Online ISA. If you have any other Post Office Money savings accounts, you can access these in the same way as you normally would.

Here are some suggestions that can help you use your Online ISA securely:

  • Ensure that you do not share your security details with anyone
  • Security details should be something that only you know
  • Do not use the same password across different websites
  • Avoid writing your security details down; if you do need to write them down you should do so in a way that will not be recognised by others
  • When you have finished, log out from the Online ISA
  • Make sure you have a virus checker on your computer
  • Keep your computer updated with the latest windows patches
  • Unless prompted by you, we’ll never send you emails that contain links to log in to our website – beware of phishing emails
  • Never respond to emails requesting disclosure of your security details. We’ll never email you asking you to enter or confirm your security details.
  • If you believe your security details have been compromised contact us as soon as possible

Please send us a secure message with your query. Secure messages will be responded to within 48 hours.
