i-Citra payments to be disbursed from Aug 2

i-Citra payments will be made in stages starting August 2, 2021, says the Employees Provident Fund (EPF).

EPF said in its official Twitter account that the i-Sinar payments for August 2021 will be expedited on July 26 and 27.

Through i-Citra, eligible members are allowed to withdraw up to a maximum of RM5,000 subject to the total combined balance in both Accounts 1 and 2.

“The approved withdrawal amount will be paid for a period of up to five months, with a fixed monthly payment of RM1,000 per month subject to savings balance,” the fund said.

The first payment is expected to be credited into the respective members’ bank accounts from August 2021.

The i-Citra withdrawal was introduced following the announcement of the “Pakej Perlindungan Rakyat dan Pemulihan Ekonomi” (Pemulih) by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on June 28, as a temporary relief measure to help EPF members tide over the economic impact from the pandemic, balancing today’s demands against future needs.

For further information on i-Citra and its application guideline, members may refer to the EPF’s official communication channels, its website at www.kwsp.gov.my, or call the i-Citra Hotline at 03-8922 4848. —TMR
