Certified International Pension and Retirement Professional (CIPRP)


The Social Wellbeing Research Centre (SWRC) was established with the main objective to initiate and carry out research, teaching and dissemination of evidence-based knowledge in the area of social security including old age financial protection to enhance the understanding of this critical topic and to promote economic development and social wellbeing in Malaysia.

Malaysia is projected to have an ageing population in 2030 when 15% of its population or about 7 million persons will be 60 years and older. Hence the growing concern in regard to social security and old age financial protection. In view of the increasing trend of older persons there is a need to strengthen capacity in the field of retirement and social protection in preparation of possible future and challenges as the country moves towards an aged society.

We are pleased to inform that SWRC is offering a professional designation programme called the Certified International Pension and Retirement Professional (CIPRP). Details are as follows:
