 When the amount of a monetary condition of bail is increased, the original amount shall remain in effect and additional cash or other form of security shall be required only for the amount of the increase.

   In cases in which the bail authority increases the amount of a monetary condition, the defendant is only required to post the additional amount, either in cash or in one of the forms of security permitted in Rule 528. The clerk of courts retains the original amount in the cash or other form deposited, unless the defendant chooses to deposit a different form or combination of forms as provided in Rules 528 and 532.
