TEMCO: EPF to close Lahad Datu, Tawau branches temporarily

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 29): The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) is temporarily closing its Lahad Datu and Tawau offices and counters from Tuesday, Sept 29, until further notice, following the Targeted Enhanced Movement Control Order (TEMCO) announced in four areas in Sabah, namely Lahad Datu, Tawau, Kunak, and Semporna.

As such, the EPF said, all prior Janji Temu Online (JTO) appointments at the Lahad Datu and Tawau offices would be cancelled with immediate effect and members who had made appointments to visit the Lahad Datu and Tawau offices during the TEMCO period would have to reschedule their appointments after the lifting of the control order.

"Members and employers are urged to opt for EPF’s online services, i-Akaun (Member) and i-Akaun (Employer), which are operating as usual. Payment for contributions can still be made through internet banking or over the counter at registered bank agents," it said in a statement yesterday

The EPF advised members and employers to obtain information only from its official channels. It said those seeking clarification could call its Contact Management Centre at 03-8922 6000.

"In this uncertain period, the EPF is committed to continue serving members to the best of our ability via our physical offices and digital platforms. Our priority remains the health and safety of our members and employees. We regret any inconvenience caused," it added.
