Federal student loan interest rates are expected to rise for the 2022-23 academic year, following the US Treasury Department’s 10-year note auction on Wednesday afternoon. The new rates will be 4.99% for undergraduate loans, 6.54% for direct unsubsidized graduate loans and 7.54% for PLUS loans. These rates will come into effect on July 1, 2022.

Each May, federal student loans get a new fixed interest rate for the upcoming school year. These rates are calculated by combining the high yield of the 10-year Treasury note with a fixed congressional premium of 2.05%. This process took place today, resulting in an increase in rates for the coming year.

While pundits have predicted rising 10-year yields based on the Fed’s recent behavior, students needing to borrow for the next academic year may be surprised by the sharp rise in student loan rates.

Keep in mind that federal rates are fixed, so rate increases only affect loans taken out for that specific academic year. All federal student loans previously taken out will retain their interest rates from the time of origination.

Why rising rates matter

With this increase, rates will now be the highest since the 2018-2019 academic year, before the COVID-19 pandemic. Although an increase of a few percentage points may not seem like a big deal in the long run, a student loan calculator can show how much that increase affects the overall cost of the loan.

Let’s say you borrowed $10,000 in unsubsidized loans for your bachelor’s degree with a standard repayment term of 10 years. If you borrowed for the 2021-22 school year with an interest rate of 3.73%, you would pay $11,996 over those 10 years. If you borrowed the same amount this coming school year with an interest rate of 4.99%, you would pay $12,722 over 10 years.

Why Student Loan Interest Rates Are Rising

With the US economy under immense pressure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Federal Reserve has already hiked rates twice this year in an attempt to rein in rapid inflation. Although the Fed does not set Treasury yields directly, yields generally rise in line with Fed rate increases.

How Borrowers Should Respond

Although this is a considerable increase in rates, federal student loans are often still the best choice for students. The rates set for the school year apply to all borrowers, regardless of their credit score, and borrowers generally do not need a co-signer. Although private student loans may advertise slightly lower rates, most borrowers will not qualify for these rates. Private student loans are also expected to see rate increases throughout the year.

Another important consideration is that federal student loans come with benefits that private student loans simply don’t offer, such as loan forgiveness and customizable repayment options. If you’re considering borrowing money for the upcoming school year, don’t be put off by new federal loan rates. don’t forget to borrow the minimum amount you need for your studies. The more you borrow, the more this interest rate will increase your total cost of borrowing.

If you are considering taking out a personal loan to go on vacation, please close this browser window and slowly walk away from the computer. Personal loans are not meant to be a quick fix for your cash flow problems and should never be used to pay for anything that is not an emergency or a necessity.

However, if you are facing something that counts as an emergency – for example, a medical emergency or an urgent home repair, and you really don’t have the money for it, a personal loan can be an alternative to low interest rate credit card debt. .

So, let’s take a look at the Citi Quick Cash personal loan to see what it entails and what factors you need to consider, including interest rates, repayments, and more.

By the way, this is only a review, not an advertisement, so you should always compare personal loans between different banks such as popular DBS and POSB personal loans, OCBC personal loans and UOB personal loans before deciding which one to sign up for. for.

Citibank Personal Loan Application Criteria

Citi Quick Cash is a little different from your regular personal loan. It’s for people who have a Citi Credit Card or Citi Ready Credit account and haven’t used all the money in their credit limit. Citi Quick Cash allows them to convert this available credit limit into cash, at lower interest rates.

If you do not already have a Citi Credit Card or Citibank Ready Credit, you will need to obtain one or the other first before you can access Citi Quick Cash.

Additionally, you must meet the following annual income requirements to qualify for Quick Cash:

  • Singapore citizens and PR: $30,000
  • Foreigners: $42,000

Citi Personal Loan Application and Approval Time

Before making your request, you can check your potential monthly repayments on the Citi Quick Cash Loan website. On the Loan Calculator, you can also select the reason you are borrowing money. (If you selected “branded luxury” or “vacation,” do yourself a favor and forget about taking out the loan.)

You can also use the MoneySmart Personal Loan Comparison Page to get a quote and at the same time compare with other banks.

To request Quick Cash, existing Citibank customers can go through the Citibank mobile app.

For non-Citibank cardholders, you must first register for a credit card. If so, I suggest you apply for your card on MoneySmart to take advantage of our exclusive promotions.

Current Citi Credit Card holders and Ready Credit account holders do not need to provide any documents.

For new Citibank customers applying for a Credit Card or Ready Credit, you can apply online with the following documents:

  • NRIC or Passport
  • CPF statement for the last 12 months submitted via the CPF website OR last tax notice and last computerized payslip (for employees and all foreigners)
  • Income tax notice for the last two years and bank statements for the last three months (for the self-employed)
  • Employment Pass (foreigners only)

For existing Citibank customers who submit a request through the Citibank mobile app, approval is instant.

For new Citibank customers, approval may take three to five business days.

Citibank QuickCash Personal Loan Interest Rate (2022)

Citibank does not publish its interest rates transparently on its site, which is a major annoyance.

You can only see the actual interest rate you will get when you apply for the loan.

The website says rates go down as low as 3.45% per annum, which equates to an effective interest rate (EIR) of 6.5%. But these lowest interest rates are usually reserved for wealthier customers, such as those with annual incomes of at least $120,000.

Citibank Personal Loan vs DBS, POSB, OCBC, UOB Personal Loan Interest Rates

For purposes of comparing the Citibank loan with those of the three local banks, consider the hypothetical example of a person taking out a $10,000 loan, repayable over three years.

Assuming that person is a Singaporean or a PR earning $2,500 per month, here’s what the interest rates might look like:








Interest rate RIE Monthly payment Total amount to pay
Citibank 3.45% 6.5% $307 $11,035
DBS/POSB 3.88% 7.9% $310 $11,164
OCBC 5.43% 11.47% $323 $11,629
UOB 3.4% 6.42% $306 $11,020

As you can see, in this particular example, Citi Quick Cash is actually quite competitive against the three local banks, with only UOB being slightly cheaper.

Citibank Quick Cash Personal Loan Promotions

In the spirit of sharing the lobangs, here are the current Citibank promotions to watch:

  • MoneySmart Promotion: New Quick Cash loan customers receive $150 + $400 cash through PayNow when they apply for Citi Quick Cash via MoneySmart. Valid until April 30, 2022.
  • Citibank Mobile App Promotion: Get $50, $150 or $450 GrabFood vouchers. Valid until May 31, 2022.

Be careful with personal loans

Despite what the banks’ marketing slogans might have you believe, personal loans are NOT a convenient band-aid to all your money troubles, allowing you to afford all the vacations and shopping sprees you desire.

In fact, it’s best to avoid personal loans unless you absolutely need to spend the money and your only other option is to go into credit card debt. Some examples of needs are: emergency medical care, your child/parent/pet becomes ill, your window or front door is broken, or your refrigerator is broken.

For anything less urgent or less necessary, give yourself time to save up rather than go into debt.
