MCO: EPF extends employers April 2020 contribution payment date

KUALA LUMPUR (April 13): The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) has extended the date for employers to remit their mandatory contribution for the salary month of March 2020 (April contributions), from this Wednesday (April 15) to April 24, 2020, in light of Malaysia’s ongoing Movement Control Order (MCO).

"Contribution payments can be made on the EPF website via e-Caruman in the i-Akaun (employer) portal, Internet banking or by visiting the counter of appointed banks,” the EPF said in a statement today.

Malaysia’s MCO, which was initially scheduled between March 18 and 31, requires non-essential businesses to stop operations, while the public has been ordered to stay at home to curb the Covid-19 outbreak.

On March 25, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the government decided to extend the MCO until April 14, because updates from the National Security Council and Health Ministry indicated an increase in Covid-19 cases.

On Friday (April 10), Muhyiddin said the government is extending the MCO until April 28.
