  1. How do I calculate my monthly instalment amount for POSB Loan Assist?

    POSB Loan Assist interest rate computation is under Flat Rate Basis. Fixed Rate Flat-Add-On means that the interest rate and your monthly loan instalment remain the same throughout the duration of your loan. This protects you against any interest rate fluctuations.

    Illustration 1
    Suppose you take a loan of S$10,000 over 5 years at an interest rate of 5.88%. The computation would be as follows:

    • Total interest payable over 5 years
      S$10,000 x 5.88% x 5 years = S$2,940
    • Monthly instalment
      (S$10,000 + S$2,940) / 60 months = S$216

  2. How do I compute for early redemption for POSB Loan Assist?

    For any standard loan scheme, you are required to pay all principal and interest that would have accrued over the entire loan period. However, in the event you decide to repay the outstanding loan before the loan period ends, you will receive a rebate on the interest.

    The interest rebate will be calculated by the using an Interest rebate formula +
    Suppose your loan is S$10,000.00 over 5 years at 5.88%. If you repay the entire loan outstanding after making 36 monthly instalments, the computation is as follows:

    Computation For Loan Redemption

    +Interest rebate formula

    R =

    n (n + 1)

    x TC =

    x S$2,940 = S$482

    -------------

    ----------------

    N (N + 1)

    60 (60 + 1)

    Where:
    R represents the interest charges rebate
    n represents the balance loan period expressed in months
    N represents the original loan period expressed in months
    TC represents the total amount of interest payable over the loan period

    (These numbers are meant for illustrative purposes only and should not be taken to be a guarantee of the actual, future or likely figures)

    Note: A prepayment fee of 1.5% of outstanding loan amount will be applicable for early termination before the end of the loan tenure.
