Will I still pay to the loan shark if ever I die?

One of my friend died due to heart attack but he owes money to a loan shark. If ever I owe a loan shark some money and then I died accidentally, will I still pay or whoever in my family will be responsible for my debts? If ever they will pay, should they pay in full amount? And we all know what loan sharks are, they put too much interests to the loan.

    No Name

    Technically, there is still debt left and you owe money to the loan shark. One of your relative will stand as your guarantor and he or she will be the one responsible for your unpaid debts. Make sure to let them know so that they are always prepared whatever happens. Also, it is better to pay in full amount because it will not increase if there is nothing left, no interest will be added since there is no more unpaid debt.

You can actually apply for a credit card and personal loan at the same time

To apply for a UOB Personal Loan, you’ll need either a UOB CashPlus account or UOB credit card as UOB draws from your credit card limit. If you’re new to UOB, you can apply for a credit card and personal loan at the same time but note that terms & conditions like the fee schedule of the credit card will also apply to your UOB Personal Loan. UOB bank is one of the few banks that provide instant approval for personal loans for submissions between 7am to 8pm by new UOB customers.

DBS personal loans are based on either your credit card or personal line of credit

DBS personal loans are based on either your credit card or personal line of credit. Thus if you have DBS credit card or DBS Cashline and a DBS deposit account, you can apply through internet banking and get your loan processed immediately and credited instantly into your account. However if you don’t have a DBS credit card you can still get this loan, but you will have to furnish your income documents and obviously you won’t get the funds right away

One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees

The CIMB CashLite personal loan is based on your available credit card credit limit therefore you have to be a CIMB cardholder to apply for it. One other good thing CIMB credit cards have is that there are no annual fees but CIMB doesn’t publish their interest rates online. The actual interest rate is personalised based on your risk profile and credit history so you might very well end up with a higher interest rate than advertised.

MoneySmart exclusive rate of 3.5% (7.27% p.a.) for new loan customers with only 1% processing fee

The OCBC ExtraCash Loan is a true personal loan as it allows you to borrow up to 6X your monthly salary. However, I must warn that the interest rate is kinda high. If you don’t require that much money, I recommend that you consider the OCBC Cash-on-Instalments loan which is slightly cheaper. However currently with OCBC personal loan, you can get a MoneySmart exclusive rate of 3.5% (7.27% p.a.) for new loan customers with only 1% processing fee. For existing loan customers, you pay an interest of 4.7% p.a. (EIR 9.46% p.a.).

A great contender for the 7-year personal loans provider

This card is a great contender for the 7-year personal loans lead yet is the relative newcomer on the block. This does not stop them from being very aggressive in Singapore these past few years. Although Bank of China $martLoan’s interest rates are on the high side, Bank of China is generally more lenient than most other banks in Singapore and have a lower minimum annual income.
