Recently I have received a question from an individual, “As the deposit period for Sukanya Samriddhi Account is upto 14 years only, * Will government pay interest during 14 -21 year*?” The answer of this question in simple words will be “

**Yes”**.

**Don’t Miss** Sukanya Samriddhi Account interest rate for 2015-16

Under Sukanya Samriddhi Account new saving scheme one can deposit money till 14 years from the account opening date. But after 14 years it will simply accumulate interest on the accumulated amount till maturity.

Interest will be compounded yearly basis. And this will be gradually able to make a huge corpus if the initial investments are good. Let’s explain how much one will get from these 14-21 years without depositing further money to Sukanya Samriddhi Account.

### Sukanya Samriddhi Account Interest Calculation If you invest Rs 100/month

If someone invests Rs 100 on monthly basis, means Rs 1200 every year. Then after 14 years the accumulated amount will be Rs 32,999.

Now from 15th year onward this amount will grow further after getting compounding interest. After 21 years it will be Rs 60,713. That means almost double in 7 years. And the interesting factor is without depositing further amount. This is the power of compounding.

**Don’t Miss** Sukanya Samriddhi Scheme is 100% tax free

The above calculation is done using the Sukanya Samriddhi Account calculator, where interest rate is considered as 9.1% throughout 21 years. In real time it will change every year and the maturity amount will be different than the above.

In-fact new interest rate for year 2015-16 has been recently declared as 9.2%. Hope this explanation is enough to understand this query. Share your queries regarding Sukanya Samriddhi Account new saving scheme here.

Today my daughter age is 9 yrs. Does this scheme will compel me to deposit money for 14 years or till my daughter attains age of 21 yrs. Its not clear whether the period 14 yrs-21yrs is related to number of years one has to deposit the amount or its related to age of 14 and age of 21.

say for example

one girl is of age 9 yrs today i.e in 2015. after a period of 10 yrs ,girls age would be 19. Can the girl get 50% of money though the scheme has run only for a period of 10 yrs. similarly after a period of 13 yrs the girls age would be 22. will she get the maturity amount. pls confirm.

Hi Mahendra,

The years 14 and 21 is from the date of opening. In your case the deposit year will be till 9 + 14 = 23 years and maturity year will be 9 + 21 = 30 years. But if your kid got married before 30 year then this account should be close immediately.

Now when the girl will be 18 years, means after 9 years you can withdraw 50% amount for her education expenses. In this case you can withdraw before finishing the deposit years only. But maturity of Sukanya Samriddhi Account will be at the age of 30 or the age of her marriage whichever is earlier.

in case of depositary person death what are the benfits to girl.

In case the depositor die unfortunately and it is not possible for the girl child to continue the account then this account should be foreclosed asap. You can check out the Sukanya Samriddhi Account pre-closure rules below

Sir,

I want to know at the time of 18 years what type of documents a girl child has to deposit at that time. Since my daughter is 8 years old at present having name XXXXXX in birth certificate but we have changed her name to YYYYYYY in school. Please confirm only birth certificate is sufficient at that time. Please suggest.

Sir i have daughter her age was 10 years when i started this scheme. I am paying Rs.1000 monthly. Till how many years shall i pay the amount and what age i would get the amount back.

Dear Sir,

I have opened SSA a/c for my daughter on Jan-2016 with the initial payment of 15,000 at Indian bank. And whenever I got additional money , I am depositing to this a/c. So far I have deposited 70,000. However these deposits are not made every month. Sometime I made more than one deposits on same month and other months I have not deposited any amount.

my question – is it mandatory to pay a minimum amount every month (Ex Rs 1000/-) ? means that can’t we miss deposit ever month … I read in a article that if I missed deposit for a month then interest rate would only be 4%. is that correct? .

Thank you,

Mani.

Min deposit amount is applicable for a year only, not monthly basis.

Dose the amount to be invested in SSA should be same every year like if I deposited Rs. 12000/- this year I have to pay only Rs. 12000/- all the fourteen years or I deposited Rs. 12000/- this year and next year I can increase it to Rs. 30000/- or Rs. 60000/-

if some one deposit yearly Rs.1000 then how much amount will get back on maturity? is that same 600000/- or less. and what is the interest rate?

Can we deposit monthly or early?
