Can I pay off my CIMB personal loan early in full?

Absolutely. In actuality, there are no fees associated with paying off your CIMB Cash Plus Personal Loan early.

All you have to do is let CIMB know in writing about it one (1) month before the early settlement.

If I’m blacklisted, am I still eligible to apply for a CIMB personal loan?

It depends on your credit history with other banks, as all of this information (current debts for credit cards, personal loans, mortgages, and auto loans) will be recorded in CCRIS/CTOS .

The best course of action would be to change the habit and start making your payments on time in order to avoid more difficulties if you have bad credit because of irregular payments.

If you can demonstrate that you are managing your personal finances rather than taking on extra debt, CIMB is more likely to approve your application for a personal loan.
