    I have $125,000 that I would like to invest. I am 75 years old and my husband and I are receiving an aged pension. I also have $14,000 in First State Super that I would.ike to know if I could get better interest by putting that money into a term deposit.
    I am confused as to where I would get the best return.

      Hi Pat,

      Thanks for your comment and I hope you are doing well.

      There are different ways to earn interest in your investment. A high-interest savings account is a bank account that helps your savings grow faster. Generally, it offers a higher interest rate compared to other transaction accounts.

      A term deposit is another savings account where your money is kept away for a fixed term at a fixed interest rate.

      Choosing between these will highly depend on your circumstances and your cash flow needs.

      You can find and compare term deposit rates on this page and and high interest savings on this page. On those pages, you will find a table where you can compare the features and benefits of each home loan provider such as loan amount, fees, interest and etc. Start by using the calculator on top of the table. Enter the information needed and click calculate. This will show your interest earned per provider. This way it will be easier for you to see which provider fits you best.

      You can also click the compare box beside each loan option and compare up to 4 options side by side for easier comparison.

      As a friendly reminder, review the eligibility criteria, fees, interest rates, and terms & conditions of the chosen account before applying. You may also contact the bank should you have any questions about their product.

      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      Best,
      Nikki
