Borrowers who are in need of assistance are encouraged to contact their banks early to discuss repayment assistance options. As mentioned by Bank Negara Malaysia, borrowers’ Central Credit Reference Information System (CCRIS) records will not be affected by assistance received for the rest of 2021.
Borrowers may contact their banks through various channels including online via the banks’ websites, through the banks’ mobile apps, over the phone or at bank branches. Borrowers intending to visit the bank branches are advised to check on their respective banks’ websites for information on any changes in operating hours or arrangements for over-the-counter services in view of the continuing restrictions owing to the pandemic.
