An introduction to the Moneybox
Cash Lifetime ISA

What is a Lifetime ISA?

  • The Lifetime ISA is a product designed by the government to help people aged 18-39 buy their first home or save for retirement.
  • You can save up to £4,000 each tax year and get a 25% government bonus on all savings.
  • So, if you pay in the maximum £4,000, the government will top it up with an additional £1,000. Pay in £1,000 and you’ll get £250. Kerching. You can do this every year until you’re 50.
  • Our market-leading Cash Lifetime ISA offers an interest rate of 1.1% - comprised of a 0.5% AER variable rate, plus a 0.6% introductory bonus rate in the first year.

What else should I know?

  • There are no fees for this account.
  • This Moneybox savings account holds your savings via third party banks. These banks are covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme so your savings are protected up to £85,000. You can find out more at Moneybox FSCS Protection.
  • You can use the Lifetime ISA to buy a house up to the value of £450,000 anywhere in the UK but must have had the account open for at least one year before you withdraw money to do this.
  • If you need to withdraw money for any reason other than your first home or retirement, you’ll pay a government charge of 20% on the value of your withdrawal. This means you will lose any government bonuses you have earned. Please note this is a temporary reduction from 6 March 2020 - 5 April 2021. After this period the government withdrawal charge will revert to 25% (you'll pay an additional £6.25 for every £100 deposited).

It's important you know

If you withdraw money for any reason other than buying your first home (up to £450,000) or retirement, there is a 20% government withdrawal charge, meaning you will lose any government bonuses you have earned. Please note this is a temporary reduction from 6 March 2020 – 5 April 2021. After this period the government withdrawal charge will revert to 25% (you’ll pay an additional £6.25 for every £100 deposited). The Lifetime ISA is treated differently for tax purposes when compared to a pension. If you decide to opt out of your workplace pension and instead pay into a Lifetime ISA, you will not benefit from any employer-matched contributions into your LISA and it may affect your current and future entitlement to means-tested state benefits. If considering the Lifetime ISA for the purposes of retirement, we recommend you speak with an independent financial advisor.
