EPF back to 11%


With effective 1st January 2021 after the Budget 2021, employees have the option to reduce their EPF statutory contribution rate from 11% to 9%. This rate for employees will be in effect from January 2021 wages (February 2021 contribution) up to June 2022 (July 2022 Contribution) wages.

Why 9%

“The government understands the challenges faced by the people due to prolonged lockdowns and to increase cash in hand, EPF will extend the minimum contribution rate from 11% to 9% until June 2022.'' says Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz.

Borang KWSP 17A for 11% contribution

The reduced rate is default for all employees under 60 years old.

Should an employee choose to remain at 11% contribution rate, they'll need to fill up Borang KWSP 17A (Khas 2022) which will then be submitted to EPF by their respective employer. For those aged 60 and above, the statutory contribution remains at the existing rate.

Upon receiving the completed Borang KWSP 17A (Khas 2022) form from the employees, employers will need to register the application via the i-Akaun (Employer) and keep the completed Borang KWSP 17A (Khas 2022) form as a record.

Back to EPF 11%

The minimum statutory EPF contribution rate for employees returns to 11% from July 2022 wages onwards (August 2022 contribution)
