Minimum EPF contribution rate for employees reduced to 7%


Read in Chinese Version

  • Pursuant to the Government’s recent 2020 Economic Stimulus Package, the new minimum EPF contribution rate for employees below 60 years old will be reduced from 11% to 7%. However, contribution rates for employees aged 60 years old and above remain unchanged.
  • The new statutory contribution rate for employees will impact wages paid for April until December 2020 which are reflected in EPF contribution submissions from May 2020 till January 2021.
  • Employees have the option to opt out from the scheme and maintain the rate at 11% by completing Borang KWSP 17A (Khas 2020). This form must be completed by the employee and submitted to the EPF office by the employers.
  • The employer’s contribution rate is unaffected by this announcement.
