Pensioners bond

Waveney MP Peter Aldous has welcomed the launch of a new National Savings and Investments Bond for pensioners.
 
The new bonds for people aged 65 and over will offer market-leading rates and support people who rely on their savings in retirement. Two bonds are being launched:
  • A one year bond will offer returns of 2.8 per cent gross/AER interest,
  • A three year bond will pay 4 per cent gross/AER interest.
£10 billion has been made available to allow these bonds to be issued – this should ensure these bonds are on the market for a period of months, giving those pensioners who wish to take advantage of the rates plenty of time to do so. 
 
Mr Aldous said:
 
“A key part of the long-term economic plan is to support savers and boost hardworking peoples’ financial security at all stages of life.
 
“That’s why the Government have introduced government-backed savings bonds for people aged 65 and over that pay the best interest rates in the market. They have already been a huge success and because this is the biggest ever retail bond offer, these bonds will be available for many months.
 
“This is great news for pensioners in Waveney. It’s time savers were rewarded and these bonds do that by giving older savers the certainty and comfort of a good return over the life of their investment.”
