Who can apply?
As mentioned, the account is open to anyone over the age of 50. This account also allows for joint account status, with up to a maximum of 4 people holding the account. So if you and your spouse or siblings would like to open an account together it would be entirely possible.
With this feature for joint accounts, you can your joint members, can pool together your finances making it easier to make returns. Also this way if you are planning on growing old together, there is easier access for the other parties in case, one of you passes first.
What are the benefits like?
Well first of all, you get to enjoy a multi-tiered interest rate. As long as you maintain a monthly balance of RM1,000 then you will always be earning an interest. As your wealth increases, then your interest rates go up to 1.75% p.a. on balances over RM250,000. The higher your account balance, the higher your interest rate.
You only need a total of RM1,000 to open this account, and with it you get Maybank2u.com access for easier management of your funds and transactions.
Are there any fees and charges?
There are a few charges you may encounter in the event something is lost or misplaced. For loss of ATM Cards, and loss or damage of Passbooks you will have to pay a fine for replacements.
However, the only other things you might have to additional fees for is an early closure, that cost about RM20 to set up.
