You can request the reinstatement of your unsecured credit facilities if they have been suspended due to any of the following reasons:
- Your total interest-bearing outstanding balances1 on all unsecured credit facilities with all financial institutions in Singapore exceed the industry-wide borrowing limit2 for 3 consecutive months; or
- At least one of your credit cards or unsecured credit facility is 60 days or more past due.
- Have existing Debt Consolidation Plan or Repayment Assistance Scheme (RAS)
To facilitate the reinstatement of your unsecured credit facilities, submission of updated income documents is required.
Your suspension may be uplifted after:
- the reduction of your aggregate interest-bearing unsecured balances is less than the applicable borrowing limit2; or after you have made prompt and regular payments to your accounts with outstanding past due; and
- After conducting fresh credit bureau and income checks.
- Your Balance to Income Ratio (BTI) is less than 4 times of monthly income if you are holding to a DBS Debt Consolidation Plan and less than 8 times of monthly income if you are holding to a Debt Consolidation Plan with other Banks.
- Your BTI is less than 11 times of monthly income, and your RAS is fully paid off if you have a RAS Plan.
The uplifting of suspension is subject to the banks’ credit assessment.
