EPF withdrawal for housing purchase, how ? | Malaysia
This article is based on my first experience that I had during the application, I'm not here to become a professional but Showing some simple guideline for those who wanted to Apply the withdrawal from EPF Account < 2 >. And I would love to share along.
KNOW before the application Is you only can apply this House withdrawal from KWSP after You signed Sales and Purchase Agreement which is generally known as “S&P Agreement” or “SPA”. Most of them Don't know (me) and thought to Withdraw this money to support their house Loan down payment, So Means that you still have to use your own money to pay the whatever amount of the 10% Loan Down payment first. Then only You entitled to Apply the withdrawal at any KWSP Branch, I went to Sri Petaling KWSP Branch and all the staff are friendly & helpful with the smile on their face. I'm purposely praising them because they make things fast and smooth during the my application, Good Job and keep it up Sri Petaling KWSP crew!!
What is the Maximum amount you can Withdraw?
There is a percentage calculation to withdraw your money from account < 2 >, 10% from the house loan amount example like :
RM100,000.00 = 10,000.00(10%)
RM200,000.00 = 20,000.00(10%)
RM300,000.00 = 30,000.00(10%)
RM400,000.00 = 40,000.00(10%)
RM500,000.00 = 50,000.00(10%)
and also depending on total amount in your account < 2 >, You can take it out all on account < 2 >. It is really a simple & easy calculation. Make sure Your account < 2 > have the minimum amount of RM500.00. If you Really have RM500 - RM2000 in your account < 2 > then I advise you better don't applying the withdraw, Too little to cover whatever just save it.
Which Document is Require For Application?
Total need three Main Document Sale And Purchase Agreement, Deed Of Assignment and Housing Loan Agreement. Photocopy these three full set of Document and bring along Original Documents, No others Document will be needed.
