Who can apply for this special FD promotion?
All new and exisiting UOB Malaysia customers are eligible to apply for the UOB Prosperity Fixed Deposit and enjoy above market rates. However, if you're a running a sole-propiertorship or partnership, or wish to apply on behalf of an NGO, charity, society, or corporate company, you won't be able to apply.
How much money can I invest with UOB?
The minimum you can deposit for the UOB Prosperity Fixed Deposit is RM10,000 or up to a maximum of RM5 million per person, throughout the promotion period.
There's only one catch - your investment must be made using fresh funds. That means money transferred from an existing UOB account, be it a savings, current, fixed deposit account, and even cheques are not allowed!
Can I make partial or full withdrawals before maturity?
You can, but the consequences depend on WHEN you make the withdrawal. If you make a withdrawal, no matter how small, within the first 3 months of your FD placement, no interest will be paid to you.
For withdrawals made after those initial 3 months, you'll only be able to earn at 50% of the promised rate - our advise is to make sure you have enough cash on hand before comitting to this FD investment.
Is my money with UOB protected by PIDM?
FD placements are eligible for protection by Perbadanan Insurans Deposit Malaysia ( PIDM). Up to RM250,000 of your wealth will be guaranteed.
