So, I was on DMP from 2010 till 2017 where I've fully settled and closed all accounts but I also realized that being on DMP or having been on DMP makes it impossible for me to get any form of loan or credit card due to "HH" credit rating.

I'd like to find ways to improve my credit rating but not being able to get a loan to do so makes it a vicious cycle.

So I'd like to get some info on what should I do in this situation? will the records be erased after a few years or will it be permanent?

Maybe you should try to get a secured credit card to slowly build up your credit rating. So long as you have been making full prompt payment, the rating should improve over time.

If you need a loan, did you consider this?

Thats what I was thinking of as well, but I'm curious as to whether the DMP records will ever "disappear" or is it permanent, if its permanent, then I'm not sure if getting a secured card will do much help

Once you have finished your DMP, the DMP indicator on your CB report will be changed to "No". The restructured loan accounts record should be there for 3 years as per any closed account. Thereafter, it should be dropped from your report, based on what I know.

Cool, nice to know that!

I'm looking at my Enhanced Consumer Credit Report but I do not see any "DMP" field

You can refer to a sample report here:
https://www.creditbureau.com.sg/pdf/Enhanced-Consumer-Credit-Report-2019.pdf

On the page 1 of the right hand corner, there is an item that reads "Debt Management Programme". For your case, it should be "N". If it is "Y", you will have to contact CCS to inform them you have completed the DMP and get them to remove the record. They may need letters or statements from you (which are provided by the banks) to indicate that you have completed paying off the outstanding.

Is it "mostly" or "all" rejected? If it is mostly, that means you have one or two cards approved. You should then use them and make full payment to improve your credit score. Thereafter, it should be easier for you to apply.

Did you apply with banks that you originally owed money to? as CCS advised me to try applying at banks that I did not originally owed money to.

It might have changed as my CBS report does not have that field.

I've also received an email in 2017 from CCS informing me that they will update CBS on my release from the DMP
