You get a guaranteed cash sum if you cash in on the 10th anniversary of the start date of your investment, or every 5 years after this date. So this includes your 15th, 20th, 25th anniversary and so on.
- You should regularly check your investments are on track by logging into My Plans
- The tax treatment of your ISA depends on your individual circumstances and the levels and basis of taxation may change in the future. This may reduce the amount you get back or increase the amount of tax you pay.
- The amount you will get back from your My Sovereign Investment (ISA) will depend on how much you have paid in, the length of time it has been invested, the investment performance in the fund over this time and the amount of money, if any, you have taken out of your investment.
- As with all investments, it's important to be aware that the value can go down as well as up, and if you cash in other than on a guarantee point you could get back less than you've paid in.
