  • Regularly check our website (www.rakbank.ae) for updates;
  • Notify the Bank in writing if there is a change in your employment or income details, contact details, residential status, identification details, financial details or any other material information as declared in the application form; and

Warnings

  • Minimum amount required in the linked current account is AED 3,000. If the balance in the linked current account falls below the “Sweep in Limit” covered in the table above, the amount recovery will be deducted from the FFD balance, in batches of AED 1,000.
  • Premature Withdrawal - In case of premature withdrawal, the Deposit will be broken in multiples of AED 1,000 and a penal rate will be applied on the amount withdrawn, rest of the amount keeps earning regular interest. 
  • In the event of premature upliftment due to funds being required in the Current Account the Deposits will be broken based on the last in first out method. This means the most recent Fixed Deposits will be broken first. This will minimize the interest impact to the customer.
  • The Bank may close the Account if KYC or identification documents are not updated regularly, or if required as internal policies or upon request from regulatory/ judiciary entities.
