KUALA LUMPUR, 28 November 2020: The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) wishes to inform that beginning 14 December 2020, employers can start submitting their employees’ applications to maintain the statutory contribution rate for employees at 11 per cent.
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.

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.
For other matters including advisory services and account management, employers can directly contact the Employer Advisory Service (EAS) Officer assigned to their companies for assistance.
