      Hi Sandra,

      Thanks for your question.

      To find a flexi rates for your money, you can check our list of savings accounts. From there, you can enter the amount you want to deposit and the period to get a general idea how much you can earn as interest.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,

    As a retiree, for the past 5 years I have enjoyed a 5% return on my term deposits , which is my only source of income. But in 6 months, if I reinvest in another term deposit my income will be halved. I cannot live on this little income and in need of other options. Are there other options that I can safely consider? A part government pension is not an option, as I own another residential property that I purchased for my first wife to live in as she had become destitute.

      Hi Steve!

      Thanks for the inquiry.

      I’m afraid most banks, at the time of this writing, have reduced their interest rates. You can read more on that through our guide that discusses how banks changed their interest rates.

      As an alternative, you may consider investing to credit union institutions or term deposits from other banks for interest offers.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

      Hi Richard,

      Thanks for reaching out. That’s an interesting question.

      Regrettably, we don’t have a specific list of accounts that pays monthly interest rate. However, most savings accounts should have this feature, but not term deposits that normally pays you out after maturity.

      With this in mind, you may refer to the following pages:

      Check out those pages and see which financial institution is most suited for your needs. Once you have chosen an institution, you may proceed by selecting the “Go to Site” button if available.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Danielle
