Frequently Asked Questions related to our Contributions Refund activities.
If I already have an NHT mortgage, can I apply for a refund?
Yes. However, your refunds will not be paid directly to you. The refunds will instead, be credited to your loan account.

Please note however that if you received your NHT loan as a combined mortgage with another institution or through the Joint Finance Mortgage Programme (JFMP) your refund will be paid directly to you.

Who qualifies for a Special Refund?

Persons who qualify for a Special Refund are :
** Retirees
** Invalidity pensioners
** Migrating expatriates
** Agents of deceased contributors

A Special Refund gives you access at one time, to all the contributions you have made to the Trust.

Who qualifies for a Regular Refund?
All contributors qualify for a Regular Refund. A Regular Refund of each year’s contribution is paid out in the eighth year after the contribution was made.

Why can’t my contribution refund be issued to me even though I have a mortgage
Under the Nht Policy, all contributors with exisiting mortgage will have their refund applied to the mortgage account

Does applying for my refund affect my ability to get a loan from NHT?

A contributor who has already received contibutions refund from the NHT remains eiligible for a loan benefit, once contributions payments are current.

How long after applying will I be contacted?

You will be contacted within 3 working days following the submission of your application.
If I have a co-applicant, whose points will be used for selection?
Only the points of the primary applicant will be used for selection. So, ensure that the person with the highest points is the primary applicant.

What is PIE?
The Priority Index Entitlement (PIE) System is the selection system used by the NHT to award scheme loans to eligible contributors.

Under PIE selection the criteria are :
** Parish of residence or Parish of employment— Applicants must live and/or work in the parish where the development is located.
** Number of points—Points are derived from weekly contributions and current income.

Will I be required to pay a deposit?
Only in instances where the price of the unit is greater than the loan amount granted by the NHT.
How many persons can co-apply for a loan?
Only two (2) persons may co-apply for a loan.

  1. I have made an application for a refund from last week, but every time I enter the reference number that was sent to me, it kept saying that reference number cannot be found, why is that happening?

  2. I applied for my 2009 refund from January 2017. However, I was told some days after that I need to get a verification letter from my employer because that information was not on NHT system. I got the information and I took it to the branch where I live in close proximity from March 2017. I went back to the branch several times to check if the information is uploaded to NHT system. Until this day August 9th, 2017, I haven’t gotten a response from NHT to indicate if I can apply for my returns. I need to know if the information that I took to nht was misplaced. I can’t believe if it has taken such along time to be uploaded.
