Housing Loan Monthly Instalment

Paying a monthly mortgage is no easy feat, especially for those of us with growing commitments. In an effort to ease the burden of homeowners, the EPF introduced the Housing Loan Monthly Instalment Withdrawal. So that when you find yourself in a tight spot financially, you can make a withdrawal from your Account 2 to help cover your monthly housing loan instalment for a minimum period of six months, or until your financial recovery.
