What would happen if ING were to go bankrupt?

Your savings are protected by the deposit guarantee scheme (pdf) up to a limit of 100,000 euros. The remainder is not covered. The capital of the amount of receivables held at the financial institution may be lost or reduced/converted to shares (bail-in). For more information take a look at the key information for savers (PDF).

You can also access your money at any time if you need it: transfer it to your current account – it's that simple!

Whenever you can, every month or just once a year. 0 euro or 10 euros or even 100 euros at a time. You decide. For 1 month, 1 year, 10 years or for as long as you want. You make the payments yourself online or on your smartphone or tablet.

  • You are not taxed on the interest you receive

    Is the interest on your ING Green Savings Account less than 1,880 euros? In this case, you do not pay the 15% withholding tax. Are you married or legally cohabiting? In this case, your ING Lion Premium Savings Account is exempt from withholding tax for up to 3,760 euros per couple (for the 2017 income year).

  • We will pay the interest into your savings account automatically

    Basic interest is paid annually on 1 January. The loyalty bonus is due after 12 consecutive months. This interest is paid every 3 months on fixed dates: 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October.
