NS&I

NS&I savings accounts

  • Compare savings accounts from a variety of providers
  • Choose the type of account that suits your needs
  • Feel in control of your finances

Government-backed NS&I holds more than £100 billion invested by UK savers. The savings provider is best known for its Premium Bonds and index-linked savings certificates (though these are not always available) but is also unique in that your entire savings and investment balances will be protected, rather than just the first £85,000 under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). This is why NS&I is consistently popular among savers.

NS&I stands for National Savings and Investments and, with over 26 million customers, is one of the largest savings organisations in the UK. NS&I is different to other savings providers as it’s backed by the government.

NS&I is also renowned for its index-linked savings certificates which ensure your interest is ahead of inflation. However, depending on the inflation and interest rates, these products are not always on sale.

NS&I also offers a range of savings accounts including fixed and variable rate ISAs, easy access savings accounts, income bonds (and income bonds for children) and a range of investments. You can choose whether you want to operate your account by post, telephone or online.

Unlike savings accounts from other providers, NS&I doesn’t require you to give notice prior to a withdrawal, and there are no penalties to pay for accessing your money.
