62+ Government Savings Bonds - Issue 2020

The Minister of Finance, Professor Edward Scicluna announced the fourth 62+ bond issue for elderly persons. The initial bond issue will amount to €60 million and may increase to €95 million to satisfy demand if necessary.

Individuals aged 62 and over may invest between a minimum of €500 and a maximum of €10,000. In keeping with previous issues, these bonds will earn a fixed rate of interest at 3% per annum for 5 years, maturing in 2025. The bonds will be paying the interest semi-annually and early repayment of principal is subject to a penalty equivalent to three months’ interest.

All individuals born during the year 1958 or before will be eligible to participate in this Savings Bond and shall be classified in two categories as follows:

  • New applicants
  • Existing holders of the 62+ Savings Bond issues
The existing holders of previous 62+ Savings Bond issues will be receiving an application form by mail, whereas new applicants can visit one of our investment centres by appointment to complete a new application form. Preference will be given to new applicants.
