IT WAS a dark day for housewife Shafiza Shafie when her husband, a clerk, died after being involved in a car accident on his way to work in Sepang.
She was left to fend for her four children, aged three to 12 years.
The Social Security Organisation (Socso) Selangor branch through its “Skuad Prihatin” got in touch with Shafiza as her late husband was a contributor.
Its deputy director, Mohammad Ramli Dahlan, said as a dependant, Shafiza was entitled to receive RM114.50 a day under the employment injury scheme for the rest of her life as well as RM2,000 in funerary aid.
“We hope the payments from Socso can help lighten Shafiza’s burden,” he said.
The cheque was handed to Shafiza by Jeram assemblyman Mohd Shaib Rosli at her house in Bandar Puncak Alam, Selangor.
