What is MyDeposit Scheme?

First Home Deposit Scheme (MyDeposit) is a special product that was introduced by the Government to help the middle income group to own their dream home. The government has announced the allocation of RM200 million as a contribution to the deposit for the purchase of a first home per household.

In line with the National Housing Policy’s objectives to increase the people’s ability to buy their own house, MyDeposit Scheme was launched by the Government through the Ministry of Housing and Local Government.

If you are buying a new house below RM500,000 and your gross income is not more than RM10,000, then you are eligible to apply for MyDeposit Scheme. Successful recipients will receive a 10 per cent down payment of the house price or a maximum of RM30,000 for properties below RM500,000.
