SSFB hikes Senior Citizen Fixed Deposit interest rate to 9.6%; Details here

The State Savings and Finance Board (SSFB) said it would be adjusting the interest rates on fixed deposits beginning on May 5th, 2023. The bank has increased the interest rates on fixed deposits with terms ranging from one to five years by between 49 and 160 basis points (bps).

Following the amendment, SSFF has begun taking deposits from ordinary residents with maturities ranging from seven days to ten years at an interest rate ranging from 4.00% to 9.10%.

The new rates for older folks vary from 4.50 percent to 9.60 percent, and this applies to deposits that are less than 2 crore rupees.

According to the statement released by the bank, normal customers may now get an interest rate of 9.10 percent on 5-year deposits, while senior citizens can receive an interest rate of 9.60 percent on these same accounts.

The Senior Citizen Savings Scheme (SCSS) has a number of drawbacks and limits that prospective investors need to be aware of before making any investments.

Should Senior Citizens deposit their money in a new SCSS account rather than closing their existing one in order to maximize their interest?
