MRTA or MLTA: Which Do I Choose?

 

 

Deciding to buy a new home is not a frivolous decision. It is a huge commitment and money sink and you’re likely to spend a good portion of your adult years paying off your dues.

There are 2 different life policies for your home :

MRTA (Mortgage Reducing Term Assurance) and MLTA (Mortgage Level Term Assurance).

MRTA is much cheaper than MLTA.

 

 MRTA

MLTA 

 Purpose

Protection

Protection, saving and cash value

 Protection Level

Stays consistent throughout the loan tenure

 Transferability


Non transferable on new purchases or refinance. Premiums will also increase in accordance to your age

Transferable as one MLTA policy can be attached to any loan. Need not show proof of your age again

 Cash Value


Cash value reduces throughout the loan tenure and will drop to RM0 at the end of the tenure


Cash value is fixed throughout the loan tenure and the policy holder will get back the paid premium in the future

Choosing one or the other is a choice you’re going to make yourself. Just make sure that when it comes to providing sufficient coverage for you, your house and your family, you do not allow money (or lack of) to be the deciding factor.
