You can easily change or cancel the standing order any time you like and you can choose how often you want to save.

More on the Help to Buy ISA
Save up to £200 per calendar month.
Earn 2.70% AER / 2.67% tax-free on your savings.
When you are ready to buy your first home you'll qualify for a 25% UK Government bonus on amounts saved between £1,600 & £12,000.
The UK Government bonus is paid on property prices up to £450,000 in London and £250,000 elsewhere in the UK. The bonus is paid towards the completion cost of your first home (and not towards the deposit).
When you are ready to buy your first home you should request to close your Ulster Bank Help to Buy:ISA. Once closed we will send you a Closing Document that your conveyancer (e.g. solicitor) will need to claim the bonus from the UK Government. Please do not withdraw funds before closing your account and allow up to 10 working days for your account closure and receipt of your Closing Document.
Financial Services Compensation Scheme
Your eligible deposits with Ulster Bank are protected up to a total of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK's deposit protection scheme.
