PETALING JAYA: In Malaysia, social security protection for workers has been provided mainly by Social Security Organisation (Socso) since 1971, while the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) has catered mostly for retirement since 1951.

The Social Security Scheme was first introduced in the country in 1958, soon after Malaysia gained independence. The results of the study conducted by the Inter­national Labour Organisation (ILO) in 1962 formed the basis of the Employees’ Social Security Act 1969 that saw the establishment of Socso with the tasks to administer two social security schemes, namely the Employment Injury Scheme and the Invalidity Scheme.
