Housing Loans 

UCTRF Pension-backed housing loan agreement:

The agreement is a Pension-backed Housing Loan Scheme and may be used for the purposes of Housing only. The agreement is only applicable to members on permanent conditions of employment.

The UCTRF may provide a guarantee in respect of a loan granted for these purposes, but for not less than R15 000 and not more than 70% of the members withdrawal benefit less tax (Please refer to your latest benefit statement for this information).

This does not guarantee that the loan will be approved by the Bank. All Smart Housing Plan Loans will be scored in terms of the National Credit Act (NCA) & FNB’s Credit Policy.

All applications must be done via the UCTRF Office for pre-approval and not at the Bank!!
