Whatsapp Message – RM2,500 Senior Citizen Incentive Is False

The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) notes that an audio message is currently circulating on Whatsapp, claiming that the government is handing out RM2,500 incentives to senior citizens aged 55 and 60 years, with this amount to be withdrawn from their accounts. The EPF categorically states that this message is false, and that there is no such incentive.


Members are urged to not be misled by such information, and to refrain from circulating such messages further. The EPF views seriously and condemns the deliberate spreading of misleading information to the public. Members are encouraged to visit the EPF website at or call the Contact Management Centre at 03-89226000 to verify such dubious information.
