            Mr. Surachai said that the government, under the leadership of the Prime Minister and Minister of Defence, General Prayuth Chan-ocha, emphasizes improving life quality and strengthening workers’ security. A home or residence is one of the factors that will help strengthen the stability of workers to have a better quality of life. Nowadays, buying a house is expensive. Therefore, the Labour Minister, Mr. Suchat Chomklin, had a thought to help reduce expenses for insured persons without homes so that they can have a home of their own to live in when they retire.

The insured person can exercise the right to redeem the mortgage or refinance from other financial institutions, including reducing the interest rate of housing loans in the loan account borrowed from the Government Housing Bank.
