For personal account, only the administrator or executor of your estate can make a claim on your account. Upon receiving notification of your death, the existing maturity instructions (e.g. credit to Savings account) given previously will no longer be valid. Upon maturity, the Fixed Deposit (principal and interest) will be automatically renewed for the same tenor at the prevailing interest rate. If your Fixed Deposit Account is a joint account, the surviving account holder can claim the money in the account.

An early withdrawal fee may be imposed. Also, you may earn less or no interest if you withdraw your fixed deposit before maturity. Learn More


There are multiple factors that determine the early withdrawal fee for a Fixed Deposit, including:

  • The rate quoted on the premature withdrawal date; and
  • Remaining number of days which are not fulfilled ie. from premature withdrawal date to original maturity date

Alternatively, you can access digibank (Fixed Deposit Premature Withdrawal service) on the premature withdrawal date to check if there is any applicable premature withdrawal fee for your placement.

We encourage you to place a shorter tenor FD if you foresee using your funds in the short-term. This can help you avoid any early withdrawal fee or reduction/loss of interest earned. Learn More
