Frequently asked questions

No worries, we've got you covered!

How can a personal loan help?

expand_more

Personal loans can come in handy during a period of cashflow difficulty. Some of such situations include sudden medical costs, weddings, funerals, divorces and more. Rest assured that the bank won’t require you to get personal on personal loans and share the reason for taking it up during the approval process.

What are the different types of personal loan interest rates?

expand_more

Advertised Interest Rate: The advertised rate, or nominal interest rate, is used when calculating the interest charge on your loan. For example, if you are considering a loan for $200,000 with a 6% interest rate, your annual interest charges will come up to $12,000 per year, or a monthly payment of $1,000.

Effective Interest Rate (EIR): The EIR reflects the true cost of borrowing to the consumer. This interest rate is usually higher than the advertised rate because it includes service fees, annual fees or one-time processing fees for processing and approving your loan application.

0% Interest Personal Loans: Some banks offer 0% interest rate personal loans for short-term loans. However, these tend to come with higher processing fees. This means that you will still be paying the bank for the loan, with the main difference being that the bank collects your money upfront rather than through interest payments in the future.

What’s the difference between the annual interest rate and effective interest rate (EIR)?

expand_more

The annual interest rate is the interest rate advertised by the bank. EIR is a better gauge of the interest rate you actually incur. The EIR is often higher than the annual interest rate because it factors in other costs such as transaction fees and administrative fees. They add to the final amount you pay.

How fast can I get a loan?

expand_more

The average approval time for a personal loan takes around 3 working days, with loan disbursement taking 5 to 7 working days. Some banks such as Standard Chartered are offering instant loan approval and disbursement for customers who apply through SingPass MyInfo.

Are there any benefits to taking a personal loan?

expand_more

The main benefit of a personal loan is the low interest rates being offered by banks, relative to other debts such as credit card interest rates of around 28% or loans offered by unlicensed moneylenders. If you take advantage of promotional offers, you can get a personal loan with interest rates as low as 3.5% p.a.. Administrative charges such as one-time processing fees or annual fees can also be waived during promotional periods.

Many banks also offer instant and digital loan approval, which means quick cash for you, as well as less documentation needed if you use MyInfo. Personal loan tenures also range between 12 to 84 months, giving you a longer time frame to pay off your loan.

Can foreigners apply for personal loans in Singapore?

expand_more

Yes, as long as you fulfil the eligibility criteria. These requirements can vary from bank to bank, but generally, personal loan applications for foreigners require you to:

  • Hold a valid Singapore employment pass
  • Have a residential tenancy agreement (or any other proof of your residential address in Singapore)
  • Produce a bank statement (reflecting account activities for the past 6 months)
  • Meet the minimum annual income requirement for foreigners (usually $40,000 to $45,000 p.a.)

Which Bank will provide personal loan easily?

expand_more

Granted, there are a lot of requirements you need to meet in order to qualify for a personal loan. Here are some of the banks that might make applying for a loan much more worth the effort:

  • DBS: DBS Bank offers a arnge of personal loan options to consider with borrowing amounts up to 4 times your monthly income and flexible repayment terms of up to 5 years
  • OCBC: OCBC provides competitive interest rates, loan amounts of up to 6 times your monthly salary and flexible repayment terms of up to 5 years

  • UOB: UOB offers a loan amount of up to 6 times your monthly salary with flexible repayment terms of up to 5 years
  • Standard Chartered: Standard Chartered Bank offers up to 4 times your monthly salary with flexible repayment terms of up to 5 years

What is the personal loan interest rate?

expand_more

The current personal loan interest rate ranges from 3.5% to 10.8% per annum. The interest rate varies across banks and depends on factors such as the loan tenure.

Are personal loans good for your credit score?

expand_more

A personal loan can help you clear your debts and have more manageable repayments at lower interest rates. The personal loan can have a positive effect on your ability to manage debt responsibly, as long as you make repayments on time and pay off the full amount required during the term of the loan. This could then help to improve your credit score.

What are the fees I have to take note of when I take up a personal loan?

expand_more

Besides the processing fee that is charged, other fees involved when taking up a personal loan include:

  • Late payment fee: Charged if you miss your monthly repayment.
  • Early repayment fee or cancellation/termination fee: If you choose to repay your loan early, or cancel your loan.
  • Change of tenor: Fee incurred if you change your loan tenure.
  • Annual fee: To be paid every year (this fee could differ from the first year and subsequent years).

 

How do banks or financial institutions decide my loan amount?

expand_more

Banks look at a variety of factors when deciding on your loan amount. These include your your income level, credit score, your Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR), your existing credit facilities, and more.

Can we take personal loan from CPF?

expand_more

CPF is typically not used for personal loans however under certain circumstances you are able to use your CPF savings to help finance some of your personal expenses such as:

  • Financing your home to pay for down payments, monthly mortgage payments and other home-related expense
  • Paying for your education expenses and fees
  • Even if you are able to take a personal loan using your CPF, it is not a straightforward process and it has its own eligibility criteria you need to meet.

Why is it so hard to get a personal loan?

expand_more

Getting a personal loan is not an easy process as lenders have to mitigate the risk of loss they might incur from borrowers defaulting on payments which can be determined by looking at your credit score, income and employment status.

What if you don’t qualify for a personal loan?

expand_more

If ineligible for a personal loan, consider secured options, like offering collateral or involving a cosigner. Otherwise, work on improving your credit score, explore alternative lenders, such as online platforms or credit unions, and look into peer-to-peer lending. Negotiate with creditors for better terms or seek assistance from a credit counseling agency. Carefully assess each option and choose based on your needs and repayment ability, and consider seeking professional financial advice for guidance. If the need isn't immediate, focus on building an emergency fund.

How much can you borrow with a personal loan?

expand_more

The amount you can borrow with a personal loan in Singapore varies based on factors like creditworthiness, income, and lender policies, typically ranging from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands. Generally, higher credit scores and incomes may qualify for larger amounts. It's advised to directly contact lenders to determine specific loan amounts and inquire about eligibility criteria and offerings.

What are the common eligibility requirements for a personal loan?

expand_more

Common eligibility requirements for a personal loan in Singapore include being between 21 and 65 years old, holding Singaporean citizenship, permanent residency, or a valid work permit for foreigners. Documentation such as identification papers, proof of income, and employment details is generally required during the application process.

 

Lenders typically set minimum income thresholds and assess applicants based on proof of employment, income stability, and creditworthiness. A good credit score enhances eligibility, while stability in employment and a manageable debt-to-income ratio are also key considerations. Prospective borrowers should review each lender's specific eligibility criteria before applying.

How does a U.S. Fed rate hike influence personal loan rates?

expand_more

A U.S. Fed rate hike typically leads to an increase in global interest rates, including those in Singapore. This results in higher borrowing costs for personal loans in Singapore, as local banks adjust their rates in response to changes in the global market influenced by the U.S. Federal Reserve's actions. Therefore, personal loan rates in Singapore are indirectly influenced by U.S. Fed rate hikes.
