Need help to clear commitments (self.personal_finance)
submitted 3 months ago by blubblubblub to c/personal_finance

I wanna help a family member to sort out her debts and finance plan. She was in a poor mental state and made some questionable financial decisions. Currently just started a new part time job while waiting for further her education, getting about RM2.3k basic a month.

Commitments: a. Motorcycle (shop loan) - RM213/month, loan balance RM7500 b. PTPK - RM230/month, loan balance RM21500 (planning to defer payment after she gets into uni) c. Credit card - minimum payment RM150, loan balance RM3000 d. ShopeePay - total RM3000 , range about RM400/month to RM1000 until September

I have a budget of 3-5k to help her for this. My ask is that if I can help her to pay (i’ll ask her to pay me back), which debt should I clear first? Don’t want her to keep adding debt because of the interest. Her payment ability will also reduce once she gets into uni as she will probably not be working.

Thank you all sifu!

I've went through a few agents here and there and I notice some projects offer cashback. My understanding is that the cash is totally yours and you can do what you want with it - though it is most definitely smarter to use it to pay off the mortgage or put in something like ASB if you can handle the monthly payments. Or am I totally wrong about this?

BFM is running a special 4-part biweekly series during their Evening Edition segment of Inside Story called Fix Your Finances.

The 28th June edition is titled Balancing your Budget Sheet. They provided a useful cash flow and net worth calculator sheet in Excel format, downloadable in the OP link (also found on BFM's Instagram profile page).

The special series' website is www.bfm.my/fixyourfinances

Interesting to note that according to this template, EPF account 1 & 2 are both considered to be part of one's net worth. This is a debatable line item as some people prefer for EPF to be a "forget about it" asset until nearer to retirement.

I'm eligible for it as a uni student and I finally caved in and installed the TnG eWallet app to credit it. So far I've used it mostly for food. I really like the variety and value of the vouchers TnG gives (both as new user and with redeeming eBelia Rahmah). Also, there's no minimum reload if you use DuitNow and you can easily cash out the money after upgrading the eWallet. These two features were my largest gripes with eWallets when they first emerged in the country.
