How To Calculate MRTA

How To Calculate MRTA
MRTA is a life insurance system designed to cover mortgage liabilities.

Step 1

Gather the necessary data on your mortgage. You will need to know the amount of the loan in Malaysian currency (ringgits), the loan's tenure, the home buyer's age and the home buyer's cover ratio.

Step 2

Go to the MRTA calculator link in the Resources section.

Step 3

Enter the information you gathered into the empty text boxes found on the web page.

Step 4

Click the orange "get premium" button. If you are between 18 and 60 years old and in decent health, it is not unreasonable to expect the total cost of MRTA to be less than 1 percent of the total cost of the mortgage. For example, if you have a mortgage worth RM100,000 assured over 10 years, the total cost of MRTA would be around RM700 for a borrower who is 35 years old. Assuming that this loan's tenure is 30 years, the MRTA premium would be adding less than RM5 to the monthly installment.
