I am unemployed but earn interest income ( approximately R260 000 annually)from fixed term deposits
I am under 65 and contribute to medical aid and retirement annuity
Do I need to file a tax return

Yes, since you earn above the tax threshold (R75,000 for 2017 tax year) you should file a tax return.
You should also be registered as a Provisional Taxpayer and pay tax twice a year on your investment income.
