Saffron Building Society, the regional mutual serving East Anglia, today announces that it will be boosting its rate on its popular e-saver 55-plus online account.

This rate boost takes the savings rate to 2.30% (gross.p.a./AER), making it one of the most competitive “over 50’s” savings accounts currently available. The product carries a guarantee that it will always be at least 0.80% over the Bank of England Base Rate until August 2012.

The rate increase is not subject to a limited period and is available to both new and existing customers.

Sales and Marketing Director John Eastgate said:

“With Bank of England Base Rate at an unprecedented low, we are very conscious that older savers are not receiving the returns that they will have expected from their savings. This rate boost is aimed at supporting them and allowing them to get a better return without having to move their money.

“Protecting the interests of our core membership base, which includes older savers, is central to our ethos as a regional mutual. At a time where lower interest rates are disheartening many savers, I hope that this boost will help restore the feeling that saving is still worthwhile”

*New money earns bonus interest rate only when the account balance exceeds the balance on the 1st April 2009.
