NEW SCHEME: FLEXIBLE HOUSING WITHDRAWAL

Objective

  • The Flexible Housing Withdrawal is a process to ring fence or set aside a part of savings in member’s Account 2 to the Flexible Housing Withdrawal Account to enable the member obtain a higher housing loan amount to purchase/build a house.
  • The concept or the facility of the Flexible Housing Withdrawal is to utilise the current and future EPF’s savings/contribution value in consideration of providing loan by the Financial Institution.
  • Based on this concept, the monthly contribution to the EPF is considered as an income. Therefore, the member can obtain a higher loan amount since the credit assessment on the net income also takes the EPF contribution into consideration (employee and employer’s share). As a result, the member can purchase/build a house with a higher price since this would enable them to obtain a higher loan to finance the purchase/building a house.

Eligibility
