Home Ownership

Home Protection Scheme exemption calculator

Calculate if your private insurance coverage is sufficient to grant you an exemption from the Home Protection Scheme (HPS)  

HPS exemption can only be granted if your private insurance policies are enough to cover the outstanding housing loan of your HDB flat against death, terminal illness, and total permanent disability until the end of your loan duration or when you reach age 65, whichever is earlier.

The types of life insurance policies (both traditional and investment-linked) that are acceptable for HPS exemption are:

  • Whole Life
  • Term Life
  • Endowments
  • Life Riders (must be attached to a basic policy)
  • Mortgage Reducing Term Assurance (MRTA) / Decreasing Term Rider
Important notes  
  • For an accurate assessment, use this calculator after you have obtained legal ownership of the flat or refinanced your home loan.
  • You will need information about your housing loan and private insurance policies to proceed.
  • To assess if you are eligible for exemption, you may enter up to 6 private insurance policies for this calculation. If you have more than 6 policies, write to us to request an assessment by email.
  • If you are already insured under the Home Protection Scheme, you can log in to view your Home ownership dashboard for information on your share of cover.

Your private insurance policies provide you with sufficient coverage. You can apply for exemption from the Housing Protection Scheme through your private insurers.

If you intend to use your CPF savings to pay the monthly housing instalment, you would have to apply for HPS first. You can then apply for HPS exemption after you have obtained legal ownership of the flat/completed the refinancing of your housing loan. This ensures that your monthly housing instalment arrangement will not be disrupted if the HPS exemption is not submitted and approved in time. If your HPS exemption is received and approved within one month from the issuance of your HPS cover, we will refund the full premium to your CPF Ordinary Account. Otherwise, a pro-rated premium refund will be made upon the termination of your HPS cover.
