Interest is calculated on the daily closing balance of a Pension Plus Account using a stepped rate of interest. This means that different rates of interest apply to different parts of the account balance. Please refer to section 2.10 of the Deposit Products Terms and Conditions for further information, including worked examples.
Federal Government Deeming Rates are taken into consideration to set the stepped interest rates on your Pension Plus Account, however BOQ's interest rates may not match the Federal Government Deeming Rates.
