PENSION-BACKED HOUSING LOAN
You have access to a pension-backed home loan scheme. You may use up to 60% of your member share value as surety for a home loan at preferential rates from FNB.
The loan granted can only be used to buy a house or pay for alterations to a house you already own. Approval of the loan rests with FNB and is subject to the requirements of the National Credit Act. If you qualify, the loan amount is paid directly into your bank account and then the monthly loan instalments will be deducted from your salary until the loan is fully paid.
If you withdraw from the Fund, any outstanding balance will be settled by deducting the amount you still owe on the housing loan.
