Consider This: EPF | Present Needs, Future Security, 21 February 2022

“The calls continue for the government to reconsider allowing EPF contributors one last RM10,000 drawdown, in light of the recent floods and slow economic recovery from the pandemic. Umno Youth have claimed that based on their survey, 97% of the respondents had wanted a further RM10,000 withdrawal. Is there a rationale for withdrawal and are we ready for its consequences?”
Melisa Idris and Sharaad Kuttan speak to Professor Emeritus Datuk Norma Mansor, Director of Social Wellbeing Research Centre (SWRC), Universiti Malaya (UM) on Consider This, Astro Awani.
