OCBC 360 Account Rates
Welcome to Singapore Savings Account Rates blogspot dot com to learn more about OCBC 360 Account: rates, terms and conditions.
The OCBC 360 Account (the “360 Account”) is a deposit account with electronic statement. No paper statement will be issued to you.
2. Base Interest and Bonus Interest
2.1 You will earn a prevailing interest (“Base Interest”) at varying tiers on your 360 Account balance. Base Interest will be calculated at the end of each day, based on your daily balance and credited to your 360 Account on the end of the month; truncated to 2 decimal places. No Base Interest will be credited into your 360 Account for the month, if the total amount of interest earned in such month is less than S$0.01.
2.2. In addition to the Base Interest, you will receive FIVE types of bonus interest (“Bonus Interest”) if you meet the requirements for each type of Bonus Interest in that calendar month. Bonus Interest will be calculated at the end of each calendar month, based on the average daily balance at the end of each calendar month and will be credited into the active 360 Account on the 7th business day (excluding Saturday and Sunday) of the following month or earlier. Bonus Interest is subject to two separate caps, as determined by OCBC Bank from time to time, (i) cap on the average daily balance at the end of each calendar month, for calculation of Salary Bonus Interest, Payment Bonus Interest, Credit Card Spend Bonus Interest and Wealth Bonus Interest, and (ii) cap on Incremental Balance (defined in Clause 3.5 below) (“Incremental Balance Cap”) for calculation of Save Bonus Interest. If you do not meet the requirements for any type of Bonus Interest in any calendar month, you will not receive that type of Bonus Interest. Accounts which did not receive a Base Interest will not be eligible for Bonus Interest in that calendar month.
2.3 “Active 360 Account” refers to a 360 Account with regular transactional activities, such as deposits and withdrawals, within the last 12 months. If there is no such transactional activity within the last 12 months, your account is termed inactive. No Bonus Interest will be credited into an inactive 360 Account.
3. Eligibility Criteria for Bonus Interest

You must successfully credit your salary of at least the required minimum amount into your 360 Account. Only genuine employment salary credit via GIRO with transaction description “GIRO - SALARY” printed on the monthly statement, which is credited within the calendar month is eligible. We reserve the right to request for any document or information to verify that the amount credited is your salary. Salary credit in other forms will not be eligible.

Effective date refers to the inception date of the insurance product, trade date of unit trust, deposit start date of structured deposit and transaction date of other relevant investment products. For eligible financial products with instalment payments, only the initial payment is eligible, provided that such initial payment meets the required minimum amount.

Your 360 Account must have a positive average daily balance at the end of every calendar month to be eligible.
