Need to Defer Mortgage Payments? Here are the links from banks to apply

The Covid-19 virus had hit us hard.

In the next month, most business in Singapore will shut down. Undoubtablely, it will impact almost everyone. During this period, one of the main concern for many will be cashflow. With mortgage payments forming the largest chunk of negative cashflow for many, having income reduced or a loss of a job would mean added stress to the individual and households struggling to make ends meet.

To mitigate this, MAS had allowed individuals to approach banks to defer mortgage payments.
People with home loans can defer either the principal payment or both principal and interest payments on their property loans until Dec 31.

Since the Circuit Measures call for everyone to restrict movement to essentials, you can now visit the banks website to process your request
