Difference between cumulative and non-cumulative fixed deposit

In cumulative fixed deposit, interest is compounded every quarter or year and paid at the time of maturity.

In a cumulative fixed deposit FD, interest is paid out monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or annually, as per the investor’s choice.

  • Cumulative FDs work best for individuals seeking to save and grow their savings.
  • Non-cumulative FDs work best for pensioners who seek a regular income from their savings.
