Chain Email On Nomination Records Missing

Subject: FW: Berita Penting - EPF Inside Job -- Don't be a Victim


Please take the trouble to check your EPF to make sure that your nominated beneficiary is in the record.


These guys in EPF are trying to cheat whenever they can. Its very profitable and easy money for them.


They just waiting to screw you and siphone your money into their pockets.


This is a scheme to cheat us of our hard earned money. When EPF migrated to the computerised version, they simply THROW AWAY ALL OUR NOMINATION CARDS. They are TOO LAZY TO MANUALLY ENTER OUR DETAILS into the computerised system. 


They claimed that the data is lost. In computer migration from 1 system to another, you will get back all your data.


EPF must have asked a monkey to do it, that's why data is lost. But interestingly, only nomination data is lost. When there is no nomination and a contributor dies, no one forward a claim. After some years, then someone diverts the money to another account and eventually sapu the money into their own pockets.


This is true... Pls have it check out! I went to KWSP and found out my beneficiaries gone too! So I have to provide a new nomination. Some even have all their data missing! Better check it out before it is too late. For easier process, pls bring along a photocopy of IC and this could be done immediately with a confirmation copy for ref.


No wonder there are a lot of 'Unclaimed' over past 10 years!


Suggest we better random check every year ... check your EPF nominations!


EPF change new system on 31/12/2006 , guess the conversion missed out the beneficiary file.


I went yesterday with my wife and shock to find out that both our a/cs do not have any beneficiary. We are very sure that we had personally gone to EPF office together and updated our record and now all the records are gone.


Reason given by the officer was ' Saya pun tidak dapat jawab lah, mungkin sudah sampai masa kamu check sendiri'.


Two of my friends went to check after receiving my e-mail also found the same answer - No record. cc. to your friends & colleagues - Strongly advise to check your EPF records.


EPF’s Response



The above email is a scam. We would like to affirm that the chain email contains untruthful accusations and that there have been no cases of lost or missing nomination details.


For the record, nomination details are kept in physical nomination forms (KWSP 4), which are safely stored at a central location in the Klang Valley. These can only be accessed by manually retrieving the nomination forms.


We would like to assure members that even with the migration of new system on 2 January 2007, all nomination forms, regardless of whether received before or after 2 January 2007, are scanned and keyed into the new system. In addition, all original nomination forms are physically stored in a secure manner.


Furthermore, before approving a Death Withdrawal application, the EPF will always refer to the original copy of the nomination form to confirm the details of the beneficiary. Please help us set the facts straight and stop the spreading of this fallacious email regarding missing nomination details by circulating this information to your cyber community.
