IS it worth continue my saving in POSB SAYE account?

Now I contribute about $500 per month into my POSB SAYE account, I am being lock for 2 years for 2%

is it better to withdraw the money and invest in other thing? like SSB or FD?


What you need to do:

Credit your monthly salary^ into a POSB/DBS account and select it as the debiting account for the monthly savings contribution into the POSB SAYE Account.
Determine a fixed monthly savings amount from S$50 to S$3,000 (in multiples of S$10).
Choose your preferred monthly savings date (between the 1st and 25th day of the month)*.
Make no withdrawal from the POSB SAYE Account.
Below is an illustration of the interest earned when you make a successful S$100 monthly contribution into your POSB SAYE Account on the 1st day of each month.

If you intend to contribute 500 sgd per month into SSB, do consider the 2sgd transaction fee in the interest calculation.

I think SAYE still wins SSB, at least for the first 2 years.

I think SSB is worth considering since next month bond is 1.89% per annum!
Put $10,000 you have earn about $190. Better than the POSB since you are locked down for 2 years?

This will show you the past months of the interest rates for SSB. I think can worth to consider if you want some stable returns.

I didn't use POSB SAYE account, I bought SSB and open OCBC 360 account.
Putting salary into OCBC 360 account is good too. Every month earn interest credit.

i renewed my POSB SAYE account 3 months back.
The effective rate is 2.27% (for the >$800 tier) so its still not too bad.

>$800 tier means every month add more than $800? or keep minimum balance more than $800?

If i have received the bonus interest at end of 2-years of SAYE, what will happen next?

Will the SAYE auto- continue for a new 2-years cycle with bonus 2% interest at the end?
Or will it be back to normal Low interest rate?
