    Lifetime ISA 13th Feb 18 at 10:50 AM
    Hi all,

    Sorry if this has been posted before but quick question regarding the bonus payments for FTB, below is what I plan to do having opened the LISA this morning, please could someone advise me if my understanding of the product is correct.

    13th Feb-18: pay in 4k.
    5th Apr-18: Pay in 4k
    5th Apr-19: Pay in 4k

    Would this mean that my bonus amount would be 3k in May-19 (roughly when I plan to purchase), or would it only be 2k?

    Thanks in advance

    You need to pay in on 6th April (first day of tax years) not the 5th, but apart from that, yes, you can earn a total of 3K in bonuses, the last 1K of which would be payable in late May (or maybe early June) 2019.
