Just check KWSP website: http://www.kwsp.gov.my/index.php?ch=p2memb...mbers_wdrawtype

There are few types:
Withdrawal to Reduce / Redeem Housing Loan
Withdrawal to Purchase a House
Housing Loan Monthly Instalment Withdrawal

For first time withdrawal, and house is purchasing from developer, is it I should go for "Withdrawal to Purchase a House"?

I want one time withdrawal..

Thanks. smile.gif

Yes, "Withdrawal to Purchase a House" ...
You can withdraw the one lump sum within 3-years of SPA signed date ...
Don't need to download first doesn't matter, just make sure you bring everything there, so you wouldn't need to go for 2nd time

for the question the money is bank in directly to bank loan a/c or cheque...depends on which bank. some bank, able to bank in directly to LOAN a/c. some may not. in the case that bank dont bank in one, then the cheque will issue to your BANK loan a/c. not your saving a/c. so no matter how, you are unable to withdraw the money for other purpose. Im saying about 2nd and above withdrawal for reduce housing loan. smile.gif

few years back (before 2009), yes, they'll issue you a cheque...
after that, direct to the loan account... cannot withdraw... banker said got some clients did that (withdraw out from the loan), EPF found out, kena penalty, vomit out the amount and blacklisted both client and approver banker

If can, pls avoid withdraw EPF money.

This money is for your retirement /old age.

suggest to withdraw the money from EPF to reduce housing loan. reason is...housing loan interest that you pay is higher than the interest you earn from EPF. long term point of view, you will have interest saving. rolleyes.gif


Added on June 27, 2012, 6:34 pmsomemore, now, you can withdraw to reduce house loan EVERY year.

With the withdraw of epf buying 1st house, renovation, every year withdraw for repayment certainly won't enough la.

you also won't know if the epf will not be there wat!

epf gave average 6% return less loan interest 4% = am I right to say better don't withdraw EPF if just to reduce the interest?

R u sure on this? As the current housing loan is mostly about BLR(6.8%) - 2 to 2.4%, means around 4% to 4.4%

whereas EPF divided average about 5% yearly...

Added on June 28, 2012, 8:54 amTikaram,

You have your point. I agree with you as i have not withdraw EPF for both houses i bought before this. But when u think in depth again, the current market is talking about cash in hand. When u have more cash in hand right now, you could do more investment (eg: buy more property).

Althought it does not guranttee better returns, but still it is up to invidual choices...

no i won't know and i don't plan to risk it tongue.gif
my rental prop is giving double digit returns so it makes more sense for me to withdraw (as much as i can and as fast as i can) smile.gif

don't think EPF gave up to 6% and loan rates are not 4% smile.gif

For my case, I never withdraw money from EPF 2rd account before, so I don't need to provide any document like SnP within 2 years in order to have money bank into my saving account or open cheque under my name?


Btw, I intend to withdraw money for other investment purpose, so I can use use "Withdrawal to Purchase a House" option?

i think there's no option to withdraw for investments (other than property)... it's either buy house or pay housing loan...
from what i have gathered... buy house, need SPA
pay housing loan, need loan balance statement from the bank

good luck bro smile.gif

If i am not mistaken we can empty out our existing Account 2 to reduce principal housing loan amount. Good thing is there are banks that allow you to redraw this amount as cash back.

forgotten if need SPA or not. if i'm not mistaken, no need SPA at all.

most importantly document is the bank loan statement. they will provide you a detailed breakdown of your loan, etc. etc. according to EPF's format.

i did mine back in August 2013. settled it within 5 mins! the EPF rep checked the bank loan statement, key in some into the system, verify my IC, gotten my thumbprint, etc. etc. incredibly hassle-free smile.gif

fyi your bank may charge for preparing the statement. mine is OCBC, they charged me RM20 (credited into my loan account).

within 2 weeks, my EPF withdrawal went into my loan account. all via online transfer from EPF -> Bank.

bank interest is awful especially house loan. they charge you daily basis. if your loan account has rm100,000. given 6.6% current BLR/annum for example. for every ringgit daily interest rate is 1/365 x 0.066. for rm100,000 in your current loan account you are actually paying the bank rm18.08 on daily salary (sufficient for 2 meals). so in 1 mth with 30 days the interest itself cost you rm542.00. if your monthly payment is rm1000. so principle reduction is rm458. next month they charge you daily interest of remainder rm99,542. calculate for next mth daily charges is rm18. so in 30 days u pay the interest rm540. the banks easily charges you interest till your last payment where interest became zero. that depends how many years of your loan tenure. the longer the bestest for the banks. when the BLR raises they banks more untung. whereby for every ringgit more interest will be pass on to house owners. for example if you keep paying same amount of installment. let say your loan is 20 years. in worst case if BLR keeps going high u may end up 30 years loan automatically depends.

the bank says when u pay the principle. you have no money or savings for emergencies. most of all banking financial agents will tell u.

yeah, aint that shitty, right? mad.gif

when i first bought my landed properties (2nd hand, vacant unit), bank loan was 120K (25years tenure, forgot what's the BLR). my parents told me i'll be paying off the interests alone for the coming years ahead. i was like rclxub.gif seriously?

received the bank loan statements, looked at the trnsactions, omg to my disbelief, the monthly repayments were just to pay off the interests for the first 5 years alone! holykawwww! didnt even touch a cent to the 120K loan blink.gif

i'm now at my 8th year loan tenure, with balance about 80K to go. i'll keep on withdrawing EPF Acc 2 every year to reduce the houseloan down to manageable 20-30K, whereby the interests doesnt kill me first sweat.gif most probably take out SA/FD and finish off the loan in one go thumbup.gif

you are good to go with flexi-loan. whereby for conventional loans bank will charge you prepayment fees to discourage you from reducing their profit margins.

given senario Mr. A & Mr. B borrows rm100,000 for 10 years & 20 years respectively. so within 10 years both of them plan to settle their loans same day. however Mr. B losses twice much in interest than Mr. A for settlement. this is because of the loan tenure. basically the longer your term loan. you are the loser. then to some ppl they see the longer is better for them. cause they have additional cash to go about. so they won't mind about the interest. they won't give a darn. well then it's basically boils down to individual opinions.

you are right for first few years. your principle is not moving much alone. usually maximum interest for entire tenure is hold up on your first payment. when u got your statement it show like triangle which will reduce till your last final loan payment where u settle off.

you can offset by principle prepayment. this eventually deny bank from charging you interest for every ringgit from your total outstanding loan. i mean from the day till last mth of the tenure. think about how much u gain back from donating money to the banks over daily interest charges.

There is a special format which is by KWSP. Once you tell the bank statement for EPF withdrawal, they will do the necessary.

thanks for highlighting.... my mistake, should have mention 10 years settle. in 5 years interest is not much only few thousands (1.16x). while for 10 years the increment was enormous nearly twice the amount (1.5x ~2x). this is just calculation without fluctuation increase in BLR. in practical BLR slightly higher when times are good. the longer the term the BESTEST bank slaughter u all.

settle within 5 year
RM100,000 6.6%/annum 20 years -> @5th year 60 mth is RM30,812.71 interest

RM100,000 6.6%/annum 10 years -> @5th year 60 mth is RM26,588.00 interest


settle within 10 year
RM100,000 6.6%/annum 20 years -> @10th year 120 mth is RM56,062.05 interest

RM100,000 6.6%/annum 10 years -> @10th year 120 mth is RM36,868.93 interest

KWSP has template which your bank must adhere. this is why they charge u RM20 to your homeloan. the reason is EPF needs to know if you default your loan. how much NPL u had? How long is your balance tenure. if your balance in KWSP Acc 2 is sufficient. they EPF give u a bank check attention to your bank. where u payup your NPL.

yet still you need to service your loan. for those with NPL. highly chances where bank will withdraw your benefit. given example BLR now is 6.6%. your entitlement is -1.0%. by violating your payment terms you are charged 6.6% per annum instead of 5.6% per annum. you still service your loan at current rate. however the accumulated interest will be higher than your principle reduction without benefit of -1.0%. you need to religiously service your loan for few years without fail. then u can appeal for waiver of 1.0%. how many years depend on your loan terms.

I m not sure how much you borrow and how long is your term.

however if I can recall, when bank generously gives FD ~10% around mid 90's. they break much profits hence charging BLR > 10%. with FD 10% is encouragement more ppl save money to banks. so they had surplus in cash.

this causes the economy to collapse and these are few years we have crisis. whereby biz and consumers are unable to service the loans above their means. the NPL accountable for bank losses. henceforth BNM make a law banks are not to increase the loan payment against the current interest. hence limit BLR aprox near 10%. henceforth you are to remain paying same agreeable amount as per contract. but with increase in daily interest. your principle reduction is very much lesser. the accumulation of interest and slow movement of principle reduction. thereby prolong your term loan and bank see this is much winning solution for them hehehee.. this how FD savings goes <5% per annum till date.

in summary a layman borrow loan for 30 years would inherit the rest payment to next generation kin to come. in which sadly he won't live long enough to see his financial liberty. he can opt use all his EPF to payoff but have nothing for himself years to come or might not enough.. this is uttermost pity old folks shared their end of the stories. if their children's are kind enough to help is ok... not all are that lucky. where most of them grad still struggling with high cost of living for survival.

i also have a thought, if everyone withdrawing for mthly loan payment & principle reduction. sooner or later the govt close down the scheme. due to fact they find difficulties to use our monies.just like the kwsp beli komputer scheme we all know.

after all we had no idea of knowing also. reality our money is with kwsp and they are rule keeper.

for the question the money is bank in directly to bank loan a/c or cheque...depends on which bank. some bank, able to bank in directly to LOAN a/c. some may not. in the case that bank dont bank in one, then the cheque will issue to your BANK loan a/c. not your saving a/c. so no matter how, you are unable to withdraw the money for other purpose. Im saying about 2nd and above withdrawal for reduce housing loan. smile.gif

I got the info from http://www.loanpro.com.my/home-loan/, bring IC, letter from banks (Public bank charge Rm 20, each Rm 10 for you and EPF) and EPF request form.

They bank-in directly to your loan account.

if I have a plan to fully settle my housing loan in 10 years time, one of my major step is to let the epf to run for my fund for that 10 years to earn extra approximately 2% per annum. In 10 years, you will save about 22% when the 10th year come.

talking about risk, companies will collapse 1st before the government...

they issue a cheque with kwsp header under your bank name. you need to present it to the bank. fill up payment form indicate loan prepayment with principle reduction in BIG BOLD LETTERS. if not they bank will take the lum sum and assign it to monthly installment payment.

I checked with KWSP officers the right way is issuing cheque.

EPF direct bank in is meant for monthly installment payment. for example u got KWSP bank in rm30,000. to bank automatically it will be treated as your mthly installment till it reaches that amount. if u had read about the bank terms & conditions any prepayment or principle reduction must be in written and stated in paper. there is a need you need to present yourself for verification and they check your IC.

if not then you are paying installment over installment. your principle reduction is very minimal. this is thing many are not aware.

Bank will always try to do it wrong in order to make more money from us.
So what we need to do is ask properly.

Yup, you pay rm10 to bank, bank will print out what's your principle at on ** date.
Submit this form to EPF and EPF will process the application, approve then they will send us a letter stating the application has been approved.
After 1 month check out with the bank on the principle balance.
I applied twice for doing this and now regret.

I got the info from http://www.loanpro.com.my/home-loan/, bring IC, letter from banks (Public bank charge Rm 20, each Rm 10 for you and EPF) and EPF request form.

They bank-in directly to your loan account.

Do you know how long did it take for that to happen?

For the money from AC2 to be transferred to your loan a/c.

Hi, I'll try to help out with some answers based on what I know. It's best you call EPF up to confirm.

hi if i want to do monthly installment for my housing loan for new purchase house from epf account, can we clear all the fund available in account 2? any limit?
The limit is subject to the available amount you have in account 2. You can choose to withdraw one lump sum (once a year) or monthly.

where will epf send the money to first? my account or the bank's account?
To repay your loan, it's directly bank into your loan account.

how long the process to get approval? what documentation needed to prepare for application?
You need to get a loan statement (just mention it's for EPF withdrawal purpose) and they know what to do. The bank will charge you around RM 20 for the statement (charges may subject to which bank you are using), which will take 1-2 weeks to process. Then you have to pass the statement to EPF for them to process which would take another week. Procedure is about this, again call to confirm.

i have a question on this EPF withdrawal for monthly installment.

Scenario :

I have already withdraw lump sum at my account 2 , for this house (First house ) ( Cleared the account 2 botak botak already ).
Now my account 2 begin to stock up back ( Monthly epf contribution for acct 2 would be close to RM 600 per month ) - i think already stock up about 2-3 months.

My intentions :

To withdraw monthly installment of RM 500 per month to help reduce my loans load per month. ( My loans about RM 2700 per month currently for this house )
Intentions so that i would only need to pay RM 2200 per month to service my loans.
Gives me much more flexibility and not tying up my cash flow every month.

Can this work ? ( Can i actually pay RM 2200 per month only with these EPF monthly withdrawal paying the balance ? )

Not really , bank is still only receiving what installment which is supposed to be paid - a.k.a RM 2700. ( Of course i am not paying up the principal earlier )

If i do not touch the epf money , i will still need to cough up RM 2700 per month , which in turn means i have to allocate additional RM 500 per month from my salary.

Well, do your own maths, then only deny my statement. Getting extra rm500 now to spend in other place are good idea? This I don't know. But reducing rm500 extra from EPF is you are rm500 lesser next time when you retired. Not yet mention the dividend for this rm500.

yeah , you are right logically , but if currently i have very low disposal income to use , it might be much wiser to release the burden now , rather than having only RM 500 to use for the month. ( Mind you , it's either it eats into my saving per month , hoping that salary will increase further coming year , or either eat roti for the months lor.)

Somehow , taking EPF looks like a wiser choice. I am running on single income , with a young family to manage. Every cent in our disposal would be much handier incase of emergencies.
Anyway , this post was not to discuss my financial standings , rather was to find out whether the bank would treat the monthly installment as my repayment monthly , and hence i could pay less each month.
Second , would it be possible for EPF to do so , as i would be almost drawing down my acct 2 all the time. ( In 600 , out 500 each month ) I have already withdraw my acct 2 previously for downpayment and fixtures in home.

you have to pay by yourself 2700 per month, while EPF will transfer your fund from EPF to your bank account on monthly basis.

For this kind of arrangement, you have to go the office for every 6 months. AND, for the time you fill up the form, the amount should be able to meet your expectation. In your case, you want to take out rm500 per month. By the time you apply, make sure your account 2 has at least rm3000 (rm500 x 6months). If you apply for withdrawal while your balance is just rm1200, you will only get rm200 per month.

then, epf is consider good enough return with minimal risk.

I'm not sure whether we can put back money into epf in future, the portion we already took out.. If it's allowed, maybe putting back into epf when we have excess cash is consider wise move. For those seeking for safe investment.

You need to state your financial status also. Then only others can help.
If you are the only family support, you can try reduce the spending. Like pampers you can use napkins, no need to look for those branded milk powder as it will cause your children to have problem later on.
You may need to use EPF money if really no other ways. Trust me on this.
As if you don't change your spending, it won't solve your problem.
As EPF money from account 2 can only help you for short term. Once over, then what you want to do?

not really. EPF is having huge fund to invest. And not many investment can give high return to give back to us. They even put huge portion into FD which giving lower return than our dividend.

Maybe u can check with them n lets us know.

don't think this is allowed. There are R&R regarding EPF contribution, else many rich people will be putting money into EPF as a form of Risk Free Investments.

EPF Withdrawal is very strict

Even if u are having Flexi Loan, it is stated that the EPF Payment CANNOT be withdrawn

Perhaps u wanna check it out again cos that is what I remember reading when I withdrew my EPF

If EPF money was not withdrawn for deposit payment, then the amount goes direct into your account, in which this is considered your first withdrawal. However, on loan reducing withdrawals, AFAIK, it goes to the bank loan account.

Did you withdraw from EPF when you first purchase the home? If you did, then I guess it's time to update myself.

there are two types of withdrawal to reduce the loan: pay lump sum, direct to loan account.. or.. pay monthly, to your selected bank account.

Dear sifus around Internet land,

I hope someone could help me with this. I have zero knowledge on epf withdrawal on acc 2.


This is my situation:
1. Snp signed on year 2010
2. Have not touched my acc 2 ever.
3. I have a flexi loan for my housing loan

My question is can I withdraw the money from acc 2 into my savings acc or I need to opt for the other option which is reduce principal which will be transferred into my loan account?

Please help. Need the money for home. Super broke.

EPF return is higher than loan rate at the moment. Unless you are really cash flow tight and need the monthly EPF Account 2 amount to support, it is better to leave the money in EPF.

The facility, which is available via i-Akaun, facilitates online withdrawal applications for repayment of housing loan monthly instalments and to reduce or redeem housing loan balance. Members must be a registered i-Akaun holder in order to use the e-Pengeluaran facility.

They didn't specify which account that the EPF contributors can withdraw from. Can withdraw from Account 1 or just strictly Account 2?

EPF return is higher than loan rate at the moment. Unless you are really cash flow tight and need the monthly EPF Account 2 amount to support, it is better to leave the money in EPF.

+ 1, unless you return is better than epf rate which is around 6%.

for sure Acct 2 smile.gif

at least with e-Pengeluaran, no need to get the standard bank loan statement (chargeable) before going to EPF to transfer EPF fund from Acct 2 --> Bank Loan account.

however, there's a caveat to this facility: The applicant has to be present at any of the EPF counters for thumbprint authentication for the application to be approved.

Thumbprint authentication is necessary to confirm the identity of the applicant and the record of thumbprint is required as proof of application.

Application is auto-approved upon thumbprint authentication at EPF counter.

Members are given a timeframe of fourteen (14) days to perform thumbprint authentication failing which the application will be automatically rejected.

It seems not a wise to withdraw EPF (6.75% return) to pay off mortgage loan (net rate of 4.5%)

you have to pay by yourself 2700 per month, while EPF will transfer your fund from EPF to your bank account on monthly basis.

For this kind of arrangement, you have to go the office for every 6 months. AND, for the time you fill up the form, the amount should be able to meet your expectation. In your case, you want to take out rm500 per month. By the time you apply, make sure your account 2 has at least rm3000 (rm500 x 6months). If you apply for withdrawal while your balance is just rm1200, you will only get rm200 per month.

This mean that EPF will transfer money to my saving account? This case i need to pay for my monthly loan repayment first before EPF transfer money to my account?

there are 2 type of withdrawal (albeit changes, cost my last withdrawal was june last year).

1st type of withdrawal, direct transfer from EPF to your loan account. This one, bank will deduct straight from your principal balance but u have to continue your normal monthly repayment.

2nd type is epf will transfer to your bank account (saving or current account, whichever you provide them) by monthly basis for the next 6 month. As I mentioned earlier, the amount depend on lower of monthly loan repayment vs balance in account 2 divide by 6 months. You have to pay to your bank on your own.

The 2nd type is for those who opt for more cash flow while the 1st type for those who want to do early settlement. If you are bumi or have knowledge to get better return on your cash higher than EPF dividend (since housing loan interest rate is lower than epf return), option 2 is better.

I think 1st option is not a wise move.

I have no idea where your huge amount of confident come from enable you to be stupid and rude at the same time.

if you consider withdrawing your epf money which earned you more than 6% p.a. since 2011 (6.75% in 2014) to pay for your housing loan with approximately 4.5% interest rate p.a. is right option, no one can win their argument against you.

When bank loan's interest are low, you shall not take EPF money out.
EPF's dividend half of it is for counter inflation while another half is the actual dividend.

lol. running away from the main discussion by giving 3rd option after find out your argument invalid?

we are talking about option 1 and option 2. To cover up, come out with 3rd option - no withdrawal when loan interest is low. lol.

That why I mentioned much earlier (before 1 self-proclaim smartass come around) option 1 is not wise while that guy said that is the right one. lol again.

doraemonkiller Yamma THe reason that supersound guy responded in that way is cause he's a known troll, check out his other post in whatever threads, he just goes in without and firm background and start trolling away. Just ignore him and hopefully he will go away.

ANyway in my opinion, i feel regardless of how EPF can "potentially" give us 1~2% higher return, its not enough to warrant risk leaving money in the hands of the current govt. Dont forget in when Argentina collapse, they took over the people's pension fund and used it to "rebuilt" the country.

To Sifus,

Interested to know the answer to this query as well. Assuming successful utilization of the EPF ACC 2 to reduce or redeem the housing loan, the money will be deposited into the current account (flexi loan account).

The question is, will one be able to issue a cheque (given it's in the flexi current account) which may utilize the fresh deposited ACC 2 funds?

According to my banker (HSBC - just talked about that this morning), you are not allowed to cash out the withdrawn EPF sums. The EPF money will go directly towards repaying your loan, you can't make any other use of it, even with a semi/fully flexi loan.

Thanks for the sharing. Just intrigued whether there will be like an invisible "cap" built into the flexi current account then preventing the disbursement of the amount issued by the cheques....

I have no idea how the banks implement that limitation, but I'm pretty sure they are smart enough to prevent you from cashing it out. My guess is that they reduce both your account borrowing limit and the principal at the same time, essentially reducing your loan amount. I don't have an EPF account, so I do not know the inner works, but doesn't EPF redeem the money straight to the loan bank, not you?

So just to share my view is that, once EPF aknowledges the request to release funds from Account 2 to reduce/lower your housing loan, the money is transferred from Account 2 directly into the housing loan account.

So suppose that the housing loan amount is a fully flexible current account, would it then be feasible to issue a cheque (because it's a current account) and make use of the now "higher available amount" in that account.

I just signed my house loan agreement this morning (fully flexi). My banker explicitly said it would not be possible to cash out the EPF sum if I were to use EPF Acc 2 to reduce the loan. It's actually written black on white in the loan agreement. So my take is that it would be a massive blunder from the bank if you were to find a way to cash it out.

I'm guessing the bank just reduces your whole loan amount by the amount of EPF sum withdrawn. That would make it impossible for you to cash it out then.

For withdrawn on monthly instalment. Can we withdrawn the money from my current Acc (fully flexi)???

Since withdrawn on reduce housing loan is directly credited into loan account. Mean, can't do withdrawal even you have fully flexi current account.



Correct me if I wrong???

Tumpang thread a bit.

I intend to clear my account 2 to reduce my housing loan in one lump sum and this would be my first withdrawal. My property is in Sabah. Anyone knows if it is possible to obtain the letter from my bank branch in JB and submit the letter to EPF office in JB for processing?

Can I know how / what's the process for me to withdraw epf2 account for house downpayment?

I've paid the dp by myself, so epf released the money to me after this?

Yes, you paid first then claim later. Need your snp, ic, and filled up the epf withdraw form.

Anyone knows how does the 'flexible housing withdrawal ' by EPF works? Apply loan first or apply for the 'flexible housing withdrawal first' ? Coz it says the EPF countribution can be used as income.

I am using RHB Bank for my housing loan. How can I get the housing loan balance statement for them, for EPF withdrawal purposes? Do I have to walk into the bank for this?

I just did mine at RHB. Walk into the bank, fill up a form and they will process it. They will then take a week to prepare the loan statement (according to EPF format and standards) and will call you to come collect it. Ensure that the statement is signed by the manager wif his/her designation.

You then have 30days (from the date of the statement) to submit this statement to EPF.

Cash on hand is always better than not.
EPF is your money buy u can only withdraw for reasons like Housing/Medical/Education.
.
1. If your cash sitting and earning more than EPF rate, den take EPF money to pay DP lo
.
2. If your cash sitting n not earning more than EPF rate, u can either use it to pay DP with less cash on hand.
.
3. If your cash sitting n not earning more than EPF rate, u still use EPF to fund the purchase. U remain cash on hand. Whenever opportunities come, u hv the options to go for it

Wateva it is epf is not the best investment. On top of tat epf ll fund the largest econ in the world soon to help strengthen it. Banzai to our PM n might b kantoi to epf contributors.

If possible just try withdraw as much as possible the fund in epf. M2c

I for one once upon a time think epf is a good retirement fund. giving good dividend and all. and even chose to continue contribute 11% but recent news about epf really disappoints me

It's like unit trust, reit, mutual fund, savings plan, so on...
.
U let someone manage your money n have no say of where and what to invest your money in.
.
So why not have better control over your own money. U can choose to optimize n manage it yourself. where to invest, how much to invest.
.
My own take, I will use EPF money for property, they will definitely grow faster

It's very simple.
Now they are lobbying for withdrawal @ 60 yr old.
Later by the time you are 54 yr old, suddenly they push it to 60 yr old, what are you going to do?
