The subsidised loan limits for 2017-18 are used to calculate your DHOAS subsidy if your first payment period commenced within 2017-18.

They do not apply to subsidies first paid in July 2017 that cover the payment periods of May or June 2017. In this case, your subsidy is calculated on the 2016-17 subsidised loan limits.

Monthly subsidy values shown here are valid as at January 2021. These monthly subsidy values fluctuate based on changes in the median interest rate.
