Frequently Asked Questions

Question Answer
 1) What happens when I withdraw my Fixed Deposit before maturity? There will be no interest paid out for premature withdrawals made before 6 months from the commencement date. Payment of interest on premature withdrawals made after 6 months from the commencement date will be at the absolute discretion of POLWEL. Any interest payable will be pro-rated based on the prevailing Board Rates for the same tenure.
2) What happens when my Fixed Deposit matures? The Fixed Deposit will be automatically renewed for the same period at the prevailing Board Rates unless otherwise instructed by the Account Holder(s) in writing or if instructions had been given at the point of deposit.
