Special saving certificates from GOvt of Pak

want to know that if i have SSC which bought 2 years before example 1st of jan 2009 and as this scheme is of 3 years and govt increases the rates of profit time to time so wanna know tht will i get the revised rates on OLD certificates or should i encash them first and then buy new certificates to get the revised rates which are revised on 1st of jan 2011 ?

No you are not eligible to get profit on new rates until unless you withdraw and reinvest these certifificates.

ok thanks . one thing more want to know , if 2 years are completed on 1st jan 2011 and today is 11th march 2011 so if i encash the same certificates , will i get the profit of 2 months of 2011 ??
