PETALING JAYA: Malayan Banking Bhd (Maybank) has extended the application period for loan/financing repayment assistance until June 30, 2021 to continue to provide financial relief to individual and small & medium enterprise (SME) customers whose livelihood have been impacted by the pandemic.
Customers who require financial assistance can still contact the bank to discuss and work out the most suitable repayment assistance package to address their current circumstances.
“With the pandemic prolonging, Maybank’s priority is to ensure that customers continue to have access to the assistance they require to get them through this difficult period,” Maybank said in a statement today.
To-date, the bank has processed over 90,000 repayment assistance applications received from customers and have approved all eligible applications processed. Of these approved applications, close to 45% have been granted a further deferment in the repayment of their loans and financing.
To complement its existing repayment assistance packages, Maybank is also offering targeted repayment assistance (TRA) to eligible B40 individual and microenterprise customers starting today up to June 30, 2021.
The eligibility criteria of the TRA are:

Customers who apply for the TRA can opt for a three-month deferment of instalments or a 50% reduction in instalment for six months for their loans or financing. In addition, other comprehensive packages are also being offered by the bank. All successful applications for TRA will take effect from Dec 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
