ING Lion Premium Savings Account

An ING Lion Premium Savings Account rewards you with a high fidelity premium.
  • All your savings online

  • No fees or charges

  • Even if you are not yet an ING customer


Saving: the smart choice. A good rule of thumb is to set aside the equivalent of about 6 month’s salary, to cover both expected and unexpected expenses.

Choose an online ING Lion Premium Savings Account. This regulated savings account of unlimited duration offers a base rate of node=/RATES/LIONP/LP_RATE;replace=html% and a fidelity premium of node=/RATES/LIONP/LP_LOYALTY;replace=html% (if the balance is less than 500,000 euros).​​

You pay no fees or charges with this savings account

Both opening and managing your online savings account are free of charge. Transfers are also free. You can transfer money to or from your savings account yourself online or via your smartphone or tablet.

No need to visit an ING branch to open the account

You can open your savings account wherever and whenever you like: via ing.be, your smartphone or your tablet. Even if you are not yet an ING customer. Everyone aged 18 or over with a valid e-mail address and Belgian home address can open an ING Lion Premium Savings Account.

If you are already an ING customer, you can open your savings account easily and quickly via Home’Bank.

Risk

This regulated savings account is subject to Belgian law. It is prohibited by law to charge negative interest on this account and ING will never do this.
And what if ING were to go bankrupt? The government deposit guarantee scheme protects your savings up to 100,000 euros. The scheme does not cover savings above this amount, however, which could be lost or subjected to a reduction or share conversion (bail-in).

You choose how much, how often and for how long your save

Every month or every now and then… With deposits of any desired amount. The choice is yours. For 1 month, 1 year, 10 years or more. In any case, for as long as you like. You make the deposits yourself online or via your smartphone or tablet.

You can always get to your money when you need it: simply transfer it to your current account.

You pay no tax on your interest

The interest you earn on your ING Lion Premium Savings Account up to node=/RATES/GENERAL/EXEMPTION;replace=html euros is exempt from the standard node=/RATES/GENERAL/EXEMPTION_PERCENT;replace=html% withholding tax. If you are married or legally cohabiting, your joint ING Lion Premium Savings Account will be exempt from withholding tax for all interest earned up to twice that amount: i.e. node=/RATES/GENERAL/EXEMPTION2;replace=html euros per couple (for the node=/RATES/GENERAL/INCOME_YEAR;replace=html income year).

We automatically pay your interest into your savings account

You receive your base interest annually on 1 January.
Note: If there is more than 500,000 euros in your ING Lion Premium Savings Account, the base rate will be reduced to node=/RATES/LIONP/LP_RATE2;replace=html%. This interest rate will then be applied to the entire account balance.

You receive your fidelity premium after 12 consecutive months. You will receive this interest at regular intervals (every 3 months) on 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October.

You can easily monitor your account balance and interest via your account statements, Home'Bank and our apps for smartphone and tablet.
