By law, if you live in a building of 6 or more units, you are entitled have your security placed in an interest bearing escrow account. Landlord can keep 1% of the deposit each year for his administrative expenses. You can have the the interest accumulate in the account or have the bank send you a check.
Your security deposit can be increased as your rent increases, but if that hasn't happened don't worry about paying additional security.
You are entitled to a return of your security deposit when you move out, assuming you did not cause any damage or leave an undue mess.
