I think I may have an existing Fixed Deposit account with DBS, but I am not able to recall the last time I booked any Fixed Deposit placement. Is my account still valid?

Any DBS Fixed Deposit account with no funds placement activity within 6-months will be considered inactive. Your account will be automatically reactivated when you make a deposit within 12 months of inactivity; and your account will be closed if there are no funds placed after 12 months. Once your account is closed, you will need to open a new DBS Fixed Deposit Master Account.

I already have an existing DBS IDEAL profile, but I do not see the Fixed Deposit menu. What do I do?
