I currently have Two ISAs, One A 5 Yr Fix with Virgin Money, which has just had its First 12 months with them. The second is one I opened in April this Year with NS& I, A Direct ISA. The Virgin ISA has the full protected amount covered by the Government in it, but as we all know now the amount covered drops to £75,000 this coming January.We also know that NS&I are to drop their rate on the Dirtect ISA from 1.50% to 1.25% in November. Question.... I am looking at moving the NS&I ISA to the Five Year Fix with The Coventry at 2.4%, as soon as possible, I don't want to wait until November. What I would like to know is under the current situation, where the Government is reducing the Protection to the £75,000, would I be allowed to move £10,000 from the Virgin ISA to The Coventry in January when the new rules come in or because the Coventry and the Virgin are Fixed ISAs this is not allowed.?Basically can I top up the Coventry ISA in January if I open it now with the NS&I transfer?
