Maybank today announced that it is offering Flood Relief Assistance to individual, SME and other non-retail customers affected by devastating floods arising from heavy rainfall over the past few days. The relief assistance is aimed at alleviating the financial burden of Maybank customers impacted by the floods, which caused significant property damage and made many roads impassable.
The Flood Relief Assistance is designed to address the challenges the flood victims are facing and will include, amongst others, deferment of financing/loan payment, a reduction in monthly instalment or extension of repayment tenure.
Customers can apply for the Flood Relief Assistance via two (2) easy channels, as follows:
- Email to firstname.lastname@example.org providing name/company name, IC number/Business Registration, contact number, type of loan/product (e.g Mortgage, Hire Purchase, Term Loan Financing); Vehicle number (for Hire Purchase)
- Visit or call any of our branches, SME Centres, Business Banking Centres or Auto Finance Centres (whichever is relevant) nationwide.
All applications will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Additionally, the Bank is also offering waiver of fees and charges for selected services, such as replacement of debit card, ATM cards or cheque books lost or damaged during the floods. It will also provide waiver for late charges for credit cards of affected customers.
