I’m going to compare senior saving accounts in Malaysia.
My father is 56 years old. I bring him to CIMB to opening basic saving account and the staff advices him to open a Senior Saving Account. What is the different between basic saving account and Senior Saving Account?
In fact, the difference between a normal saving account and senior saving account is the senior saving account pays the highest interest rate.
Besides, the senior saving account is eligible for senior citizens who had reached 50 years old.
After I done some research, I found some banks that give out the higher interest compare to other bank for senior saving account.
