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
