    A few days before the end of the 12-month period, you will receive a letter reminding you of the expiry date of your account. You may consider the following options:

    • Give instructions on the expiry of the account for the interest or the total amount deposited (including the interest) to be transferred to another account.
    • For the "Kids" Saving account, you can transfer money (the interest, the total or part of the deposit amount) to another account in the bank, in the child's name, only if the new account enjoys higher interest rate.
    • If you do not want any change to your savings account, it will be automatically renewed at the interest rate the Bank offers at that time, ensuring there is no loss of interest even if you forget to renew the account on the designated date.
