If you're managing your own super fund, a then UBank self-managed super fund term deposit account could be the ideal way to boost your retirement savings. With the benefit of higher rates of interest plus the safety of a NAB-backed, low risk account, your UBank super fund account could be earning more than you think.
Opening a UBank Self-Managed Super Fund Term Deposit Account
In order to open your UBank Self-Managed Super Fund term deposit account, you will need to verify that you have a complying SMSF where either you have trustees that are two individuals or a corporate trustee in which the company has two directors.
You should be able to link your UBank account to any other Australian bank account that is in the same name as your self-managed super fund, or in the same name of the trustees. This linked account is where your interest payments will be paid to.
UBank will also require that you deposit at least $0 of your super fund into a term deposit account in order to make the most of the high rates of interest your money can earn.
If you're sure you meet the minimum criteria for opening a UBank self-managed super fund term deposit account, then simply submit your application online or you can apply over the phone.
What Terms Are Available?
The UBank self-managed super fund term deposit accounts are available for terms of 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months or 24 months.
