How to get your ASB loan approved

We often hear how the approval of Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB) loans/financing can drag on for months on end.

Below are some tips to help save time and increase the chances of your ASB loan getting approved quickly.

ASB Loan
Requirements

  • Malaysian Bumiputera
  • Age 18 above and below 65

Highlights

  • Flexible repayment duration up to 30 years (or age 65)
  • Up to 100% financing of RM200,000
  • For ASB Islamic financing, there is no lock-in period.
  • However, do go through the terms and conditions for any penalties or other clauses.
  • Extra monthly instalments do not reduce the total loan charges/interest charged.

Outstanding Loans

Make sure all of your loan payments are up to date. If you have an outstanding PTPTN loan (student loan), go to a Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional branch to restructure it.

Make payment for at least one month after the restructuring process and obtain a settlement letter.
