The National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) has recently introduced its new myPTPTN mobile app, which is now available for iOS and Android devices. Higher education minister Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad said the application aims to ease customers into gaining access to the corporation’s many facilities at any time and anywhere, and is also part of its effort in expediting the national digitalisation plan.
Among the services offered via the app includes loan statement review and repayment, National Education Savings Scheme (SSPN) statement review, as well as the option to open and deposit to Simpan SSPN accounts. Additionally, users are also provided the ability to apply for salary deduction and direct debit for their PTPTN loan repayment and Simpan SSPN deposits.
“This mobile app will open up space and opportunities for the community to access PTPTN services anytime and anywhere without borders more easily, quickly and safely,” Noraini said. “Customers can enjoy various PTPTN facilities related to repayment, savings and loans in one application by Single Sign On (SSO).” The myPTPTN app is expected to benefit over 3.63 million borrowers and 5.28 million Simpan SSPN depositors, she added.
The minister also assured that the app is fully secure, as all transactions are done with strict user verification. These include email and telephone number verification during registration, as well as featuring Transaction Authorisation Code (TAC) confirmation for every transaction.
As mentioned earlier, myPTPTN is available now at no charge, although users are first required to sign in or register an account in order to use the app. Those interested may download the application for their mobile devices via the following links: Google Play Store / Apple App Store.
