Main points to consider with a DBS Debt Consolidation Plan

Debt consolidation plans (DCP) from DBS can range from 1 to 8 years. Interest rates on these loans are fixed, starting from as low as 3.58% p.a. However, the interest rate offered to you will be determined by the length and size of the loan. It also comes with a revolving credit facility (credit card) with no annual fee, so it is up to you if you’d want to utilise it.

Features of a debt consolidation loan from DBS

  • Promotional interest rate. Take advantage of interest rate from as low as 3.58% p.a. (6.56% EIR) until 31 December 2022. However, do note that the interest rate offered to you is based on your personal credit profile and may differ from the published rate or the rate offered to other borrowers.
  • Flexible loan tenures. You can apply for a loan of anywhere from 1 to 8 years.
  • Loan size. The maximum loan size will be determined by DBS through the application process, depending on your credit history and ability to make repayments. Typically, your loan size will be the total of your debt plus 5% allowance on top of the DCP amount, applicable only to your first DCP loan.
  • Revolving credit facility. When you’re approved for the DCP, you’ll automatically receive the DBS Visa Platinum Credit Card, which is a revolving credit facility. However, the card is meant to serve as a convenient payment mode for managing your daily essentials, so you’re not obliged to use it if you don’t want to.
  • DBS Visa Platinum Credit Card. The DCP comes with a no-fee DBS Visa Platinum Credit Card with a limit of 1x monthly income to provide you with a convenient mode of payment for managing your daily essentials.
