Any questions?

  1. What is POSB SAYS?

    POSB SAYS bundles Multiplier Account and SAFRA DBS or HomeTeamNS-Passion-POSB debit card to keep your savings fighting fit on your NSF journey.

  2. Do I need to switch my NS allowance from an existing DBS/POSB savings account to Multiplier Account?

    No. You can continue to credit your NS allowance to an existing DBS/POSB savings account. You only need to deposit your savings in your DBS Multiplier Account, and use PayLah! for pay for any retail purchase to enjoy the higher interest rates on your Multiplier Account balances.

  3. I’m going to serve my NS soon. When should I apply for the Multiplier Account?

    You must be at least 18 years of age to apply for Multiplier Account. You’ll earn interest of 0.40% p.a. when you credit NSF allowance with us and use PayLah! for your retail spend, adding up to S$500 or more monthly. That’s 8X more compared to a regular savings account.

    While waiting for enlistment, you’ll earn 0.30% p.a. on the first S$10,000 of your Multiplier Account savings, with any PayLah! retail spend amount.

  4. Will POSB SAYS benefits end after I complete my NS?

    You’ll continue to earn 0.30% p.a. on the first S$10,000 of your Multiplier Account savings, with any PayLah! retail spend amount.

    Increase your interest rate from 0.30% p.a. to 0.40% p.a., when you credit your income from internships, part-time work or collecting dividends, and together with any Paylah! retail spend (adding up to S$500 or more a month).

    The 2% cash rebate for the qualifying debit cards will continue, so long as you hold either of the debit cards and meet the spend criteria.


  1. Can I open more than 1 DBS Multiplier Account?

    You can only hold 1 Multiplier Account.

  2. When will I receive my interest?

    The interest is credited into your DBS Multiplier Account in 2 parts:

    • Base interest: Credited on the last calendar day of the month
    • Bonus interest (if any): Credited by the 7th working day of the following month
  3. Do I need to close my Multiplier Account after ORD?

    No, you can keep the Multiplier Account and continue to earn bonus interest as long as you fulfil the bonus interest criteria.

    If you do not have income credited to DBS/POSB and are 29 years old and below, you earn 0.3% p.a. on your Multiplier Account balances with PayLah! retail purchase of any amount.
