Apply for Income Bonds

You can apply online for Income Bonds at the National Savings and Investment website.


Income Bonds offer a different type of investment that pays interest regularly to the holder.

You can invest any amount from £500 to £1m, depending on the amount you have available to invest and the amount of income you'd like your Bonds to generate. Interest is paid gross straight into your bank or building society account. Interest rates are variable.

Anyone aged seven or over can invest in Income Bonds, either individually or jointly with one other person. They can also be bought by trustees for up to two personal beneficiaries.
