How do I open and manage my account?

  • This account can be opened online by UK residents aged 16 or over.
  • Only one account can be opened per customer per issue.
  • Minimum to open £1.
  • For your initial deposit you are able to pay money in with your debit card. Any money paid in will receive interest immediately but cannot be withdrawn for six working days.
  • Minimum additional deposit £1.
  • Minimum operating balance £1.
  • Each tax year you can pay in up to your annual tax-free allowance (subject to the terms and conditions of your account), which is £20,000 in the 2019 - 2020 tax year. This annual allowance may change in future tax years. You will find this information on our website, in our Stores and via our Contact Centre.
  • To ensure money is accepted into your new account we must receive all money within 30 days from your account opening date. Any deposits received after 30 days may be returned to you. Therefore if you wish to add to your ISA every tax year this product will not be suitable. Fixed Rate Cash ISAs are not suitable for regular deposits.
  • Each customer can save up to a total of £2 million with Virgin Money, across all accounts held.
  • If a deposit results in your account going over the maximum deposit limit or the annual tax-free allowance we will return the excess money to you. This does not include any interest you have asked to be added direct to your account.

    • Cash - Store** only.

    • Transferring an existing Cash ISA or a Stocks and Shares ISA from another provider.

Can I withdraw money?

  • Minimum withdrawal amount is £1 (or less if closing).
  • You can withdraw money from your account but you cannot put money back in. Any withdrawals made within the fixed rate period are subject to a charge equivalent to 120 days' loss of interest on the amount withdrawn.
  • After the fixed rate period your account will become a variable rate Cash ISA. However, we will write to you before the end of the fixed rate period to let you know the options available to you, as well as advising you of the interest rate currently payable on the variable rate account.
  • You can have access to your money whenever you need it. Simply log into your account and arrange to take money in the following ways:
    • Transfer to another Virgin Money account, subject to the terms and conditions of that account.

      • From 12 September 2019, payments up to £100,000 will be sent by Faster Payments. Payments that are more than £100,000 will be sent by CHAPS free of charge.
