Hi everyone smile.gif

I'm still blur about the deductions for EPF and SOCSO. I'm 18 (just finished my SPM), and currently working part time. And I've been informed that my pay will be deducted for EPF and SOCSO contribution.

Correct me if I'm wrong, as far as I remember from what I've learnt in Economics during my SPM years, one should be exactly 18 years old and above, to be qualified for the deduction, which if my age counted mathematically, I'm still 17 as I was born in November.

And if I'm really qualified, to get my pay deducted, what's the current deduction percentages both for EPF and SOCSO?

Thanks folks! smile.gif

11% for Employee/ 12% for Employer... this year start should be 13% for employer i think (maybe those HR sifu can clarify more)

However, contribution from Employer can go above 12% on their discretion.

SOCSO for employee insurance, very minimal deduction and is based on a rated table.

if you are under 18, then you are considered as a minor

however, this doesn't legally exempt you from contributing to EPF and SOCSO if you receive WAGES for services rendered or products sold

EPF is a PLUS for anyone since you get additional 12% (now it's 13%) from your employer. But the benefit is long term as you cannot use the money until you reach matured age of 50 (acc2) / 55 (acc1 + acc2)

SOCSO is just like insurance. You can refer to the rates provided by EPF. The employee contribution is very minimal, but the benefits if shit happens to you while you are working are good.

for EPF, you can check the statement at any EPF kiosk (self service) - but pls make sure you register for EPF yourself first

the SOCSO guys are very rajin - they will do random checks every now and then, and if the employer didn't pay up, the penalty is quite hefty. doesn't worth it for employers to skip the contribution

sorry guys, my question might sounds stupid... but let say, if the employer doesn't want to contribute EPF for employee, what can we do for that? Lets assuming we are still not being hired yet...

Regarding the deduction percentage, can it be lowered down or not for EPF?
By the way, for SOCSO, I don't need to pay anything, the company pay for it.

After counted the supposed-to-be amount of my paycheck, it's supposed to be around RM400+- (I'm happy for it, as for me it's not too low).
But after deducted 11% for it, it's become very less for me. The deduction is way gross for me! D:

That means they're subcontracting work to you as a freelance contractor, not hiring you as an employee.

u sure? the company will deduct your portion for the SOCSO, but its' very minimal

as for the EPF, it's stipulated in the employment act - so u can't do anything
