Wrong, StanChart has the best rate now for up to this month.

Example, if you had S$0.01 in your e$aver back in November 2007, now you pump in S$500k, so only S$0.01 is earn 1.4% per annum, and the whole remaining S$500k lump sum will earn 2.3% per annum for March 2008.

StanChart Extra Bonus Interest for February 2008 received on 3rd March 2008 already.
See below.

It's like last year promo, only additional sum will earn that %, so if put extra $200k, only 1 mth of that sum can earn 2.3%.

The Ministry of Finance has announced the final dividends for your Economic Restructuring Shares (ERS) of 10.74%. You may check your holdings and more importantly, withdraw your ERS because the final dividend has been paid out on 1 March 2008 and CPFB will only automatically credit back the monies into your bank account on 7 April 2008:

“5. Singaporeans who have previously received their GST Credits or encashed part of their ERS through their bank accounts will receive their ERS payments automatically through the same bank accounts by 7 April 2008″

The other reason to take out your money earlier is that your ERS balances EARN NO INTEREST while the CPFB “prepares” it for crediting on 7 April 2008.

So what are you waiting for? Go get back your ERS monies NOW. http://www.nss.gov.sg/
