Crane hook victim's PTPTN loan settled
GEORGE TOWN: The family of the late Joice Chin, who was killed when a crane hook fell on her car about two months ago, is thankful her National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN) loan is covered by the PTPTN Takaful scheme.
“I am glad there is such a scheme for borrowers,” Chin’s aunt, Yeoh Ang See, 55, said after receiving the study loan settlement certificate from PTPTN deputy chief executive (policy and operation) Mastura Mohd Khalid yesterday at the Gat Lebuh Nordin flats here.
Ang also received a cheque for RM1,500 from Mastura.
On Aug 25, the 24-year-old was killed when the crane hook fell on her car at Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur.
Mastura said the loan was considered settled under the scheme and the family now did not have to worry about repayment. She said 6,421 PTPTN borrowers have enjoyed the protection provided by the scheme since 1997.
