Bank account for daily use

  • Current Account is part of our daily banking services, which also includes payment cards and an OP user ID for digital services. 
  • Pay your bills, purchases and loan repayments easily from the Current Account. 
  • Transfer spare money from your Current Account to Growth Return Account or Money Box or buy fund units or stocks.

  • Open a Current Account easily on OP mobile. You can also do it in the service (available in Finnish and Swedish). 

A Current Account's interest rate is fixed 0.25% for an OP cooperative bank owner-customer. Earning interest requires that the account and owner-customer membership are with the same OP cooperative bank. If the account has more than one account holder, all account holders must be owner-customers at the OP cooperative bank that holds the account. For customers other than owner-customers, the deposit interest rate is fixed 0.00%.

Calculation and payment of deposit interest

The Current Account's deposit interest rate is calculated on the lowest balance of a calendar month. The lowest balance is based on the daily closing balance.

The deposit interest will annually be added to the account's funds on 1 December and it can be withdrawn before mid-December, unless otherwise agreed in the account agreement. You can check the interest payment day from your account agreement. You can find the electronic account agreement in My archive. The paper account agreement has been sent by post or given at the meeting.

Tax treatment

Tax at source is charged on each interest payment. You do not need to report the deposit and earned interest in taxation.

Terms and conditions

The General Terms and Conditions for Accounts for Personal Customers apply to current accounts. According to the terms and conditions, the bank has the right to change the account agreement, the terms and conditions, and the list of service charges and fees. The bank will inform you of changes as specified in the terms and conditions.

Monthly charge

The Current Account is subject to a monthly charge that is based on our list of charges and fees valid at the time.

The Current Account is free of monthly charges

  • for OP cooperative bank owner-customers, if all account holders are owner-customers at the same OP cooperative bank where the account was opened
  • for customers aged under 26
  • if the account has been pledged
  • if the account belongs to a death estate

Savings on the account are protected with deposit guarantee. The maximum compensation for guaranteed deposits is EUR 100,000 for the deposits made in a single deposit bank. OP Financial Group member banks are considered a single bank from the perspective of the deposit guarantee.

Deposit guarantee protects a depositor's funds on an account if the deposit bank becomes insolvent. If a deposit bank is declared bankrupt or is in permanent default, the Financial Stability Authority pays compensation to the bank’s depositors from the Deposit Guarantee Fund.

You can easily change the transaction limits for your accounts on OP-mobile and in the service. Considering that such daily limits make it safer to use the account, you should set them. You can change the limits temporarily when you make bigger purchases, for example.

You can set two types of transaction limits for your account:

  • For the biggest possible one-time withdrawal 
  • For the total daily withdrawals, or the maximum amount of money you can withdraw within one day.

The transaction limits relate to:

  • cash withdrawals
  • real-time credit transfers and
  • card payments which are automatically checked against during payment whether the account has sufficient funds.

The transaction limits do not affect the amounts submitted to the payment service payable on the due date.

Read the instructions for changing the transaction limits of your account


Also set spending/withdrawal limits for each card

It is advisable to set card-specific spending/withdrawal limits with which you specify daily limits for cash withdrawals, POS payments and online payments.

You can change your cards’ spending and withdrawal limits on OP-mobile and in the service. You can also call our Customer Service or visit an OP cooperative bank branch.

You can set the limits separately for your card's debit and credit sides.
