Can Cumberland Building Society change the interest rate?

Yes. The rate of interest paid on money in your account is variable and may be changed by us. Where we do so, we will give you reasonable notice in advance of the change.

Examples of when changes may happen include a change in the Bank of England base rate, or market condition changes such as, general interest rates changes on similar accounts offered by other savings account providers.

For further details, please read clause 8.7-8.9 in our Savings & Current Account Terms & Conditions leaflet.
