2) Calculation of Bonus Interest:
The Bonus Interest is calculated based on Monthly Average Account Balance (MAAB) at a maximum MAAB of RM50,000 as follows:
MAAB 
= 
Sum of day end balance for the calendar month / number of days* 
Bonus Interest 
= 
MAAB x prevailing bonus interest rate p.a. x (number of days* / number of days in a year) 
* Number of days is calculated as follows:
 New account opened 
From the day the PB MySalary Savings Account is opened to the last day of the calendar month. For subsequent months, the number of days will be the total number of days in the respective calendar month.
 Existing account 
The number of days will be the total number of days in the respective calendar month.
Example 1:
For Bonus Interest at 1% p.a. and MAAB below RM50,000:
Customer A has a total of RM40,000 in his PB MySalary Savings Account as at 1 April 2018.
5 April 2018 
Customer A pays 2 bills totaling RM1,500 via Bill Payment function in PBe or PB Engage. 
MAAB for April 2018
= 
[4(RM40,000) + 5(RM38,500) + 15(RM37,500) + 6(RM45,500)] / 30 days 
= 
RM39,600.00 
Bonus Interest for April 2018
= 
RM39,600 x 1% p.a. x 30/365* 
= 
RM32.54 

10 April 2018 
Customer A pays another bill of RM1,000 via Bill Payment function in PBe or PB Engage. 
25 April 2018 
Customer A receives salary of RM8,000 through PB Electronic Credit Payment (ECP) Service.

2 May 2018

= 
RM96,064.52
