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.

Interest rate (after first 12 months) 0.5% AER (variable)
  • Interest is earned daily.
  • Interest earned due to the underlying interest rate is paid on the 1st day of each month, rounded down to the nearest penny.
  • Bonus interest is earned daily for the first 380 days after you open your Lifetime ISA. It is paid on the 1st day of the following month.
  • Yes – the underlying interest rate is variable, so it can go up or down, although the one-year bonus interest rate will not change.

  • There are no fees for this account.
Estimated balance after 12 months (underlying interest rate with a bonus rate of 0.35% AER variable for 12 months) £1,260.30
Estimated balance after 24 months (only the underlying interest rate of 0.5% is paid for months 13 to 24) £1,266.64

    • No further deposits or withdrawals are made
    • The interest stays the same for the full 24 months.
  • The government pays a 25% bonus on your contribution, which is paid within 54 days of your contribution.

  • The government penalty is not charged in the event of your death or terminal illness.
  • The Lifetime ISA is a government savings scheme and the rules, including tax benefits, could change in the future.
