You Can Now Extend SCSS Investment Indefinitely

Previous SCSS  Investment Rule

SCSS has a fixed 5-year tenure. Earlier investors could increase the tenure to an additional 3 years only once.

They'd had to open a new account to stay invested in SCSS after 3 years.

What Happens After 3 Years?

SCSS is Now Endlessly Extendable in 3-Year Blocks.

The new rule allows investors to extend their SCSS investment indefinitely in 3-year blocks.

What do You Need to Take Note of?

Once you lock in the rate on opening or extending, it stays fixed for the full period, five or three years.

SCSS currently gives 8.2% interest, so if you invest or extend now, your investment will be locked at this rate for the selected tenure.
