PETALING JAYA: Beginning Dec 14, employers can submit their employee's EPF applications to maintain the statutory contribution rate for employees at 11%.
"All submissions for this purpose are to be done via the i-Akaun (Employer) portal only.
This is in line with the EPF’s efforts to ensure physical distancing and minimise face-to-face interactions to prevent the spread of Covid-19," EPF said in a statement on Saturday (Nov 28).
EPF said that it is limiting employers from coming to its branches, as well as restricting officer visits to employer premises.
"Employers can only be at EPF branches for the purpose of employer registration with an appointment made via Janji Temu Online.
"Payment for monthly EPF contributions, as well as Late Payment Charges & Dividend, can be done via i-Akaun (Employer), Internet banking, and appointed bank agent counters," it said.
For other matters including advisory services and account management, EPF said employers can directly contact the Employer Advisory Service (EAS) Officer assigned to their companies for assistance.
For further information, employers are encouraged to contact the EPF’s Contact Management Centre at 03-89226000 or visit its website.
