Fixed Deposit Benefits For Senior Citizens

Fixed Deposit Benefits For Senior Citizens

Senior citizens, identified as those who are 60 years or older are eligible for a senior citizens' fixed deposit account of a bank or NBFC. They must have proof of age, as well as other required documents, in order to apply for the same. Banks, and also Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), grant senior citizens additional FD rates ranging from 0.25 per cent to 1.00 per cent respectively. Senior citizens' tenure on FDs usually ranges from 7 to 10 years. They can also claim 80C deductions for up to Rs. 1.5 lakh if they invest for a term of 5 years in a fixed deposit. When it comes to TDS banks and NBFCs subtract tax from accrued interest. TDS is levied as interest accrues, i.e. monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly in the case of cumulative interest payments. If earned interest crosses Rs. 50,000 for senior citizens, tax is deducted at a rate of 10%, compared to Rs. 40,000 for non-senior citizens.

In her Budget 2020 speech, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced raising the insurance amount for depositors in the event of bank default. The RBI had announced a raise in insurance cover to Rs 5 lakh per depositor, up from Rs 1 lakh previously. The scheme covers all forms of bank deposits, including savings, fixed, and recurring. The Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of India, offers a Rs 5 lakh cap under this scheme, which includes both principal and interest.
