About Skim Saraan Bercagar (SSB)
Senior home owners can now generate cash during retirement by taking out a reverse mortgage.
What is Skim Saraan Bercagar (SSB)?
Skim Saraan Bercagar or Reverse Mortgage (“RM”) is a type of loan that is targeted for the elderly or retirees who own a home, and allows them to convert their one big asset — their residential property — into a fixed monthly income stream throughout their lifetime, without sacrificing ownership whilst continuing to stay in their home.
- To enable retired home owners to gain access to a lifetime of supplemental income stream for daily subsistence.
- Home owners can now draw on their home equity to supplement their retirement income, thus reducing dependency on their next-of-kin.
