How it works
1. Apply online
Choose how much you’re going to invest and for how long. We’ll also ask you how often you want to receive your interest payments.
2. Earn interest
Receive interest payments monthly. Payments can be made into your bank account or automatically reinvested.
3. Reinvest or withdraw funds
At the end of the term we’ll pay out the balance of your term investment or you may choose to reinvest the amount.
What are the fees associated with APS Savings accounts?
There are no fees associated with APS Savings accounts. As a not-for-profit cooperative, our priority is helping you to maximise your savings without having to worry about the fees!
Will my investment be secure?
This is not a bank product meaning you could lose all or part of your principal. Having commenced business in 1905 and being a nonprofit owned by 30,000 members and clients, we are a very conservative organisation. We use our depositors funds to fund residential property loans secured by first mortgage with a maximum loan to valuation ratio of 80 per cent. We do not fund property developments or commercial or retail property loans.
What are the minimum and maximum investment amounts?
For APS Savings accounts, you can deposit anywhere between $10 and $10M. We cater for all types of investors.
What are the identification requirements?
If you are already an APS member, we do not require any identification requirements. However, if a partner or spouse, who is not a member and is a joint holder, they will need to be identified. For this process, we will need any two of the following documents: valid drivers licence, medicare card or valid passport. These documents do not need to be certified.
What happens when my term investment reaches maturity?
Approximately two weeks before the Investment falls due, we will notify you of the upcoming maturity and inform you of the current terms and rates with the option to reinvest.
How is interest calculated and paid?
Your interest is calculated daily. For term investments, interest is paid monthly into your nominated bank account or it can be added to the principal each month. For our 31 Day Notice of Withdrawal (NOW) accounts, interest is added to the principal at the end of each calendar month.
