It’s that time of the year again!
This Friday (24th July), the government will be giving out the third phase of BSH payments under the Economic Stimulus Package to selected communities in need. If you’re wondering whether you’re eligible for these payments, you’re in the right place.
Pembayaran Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) Fasa Ketiga akan dilaksanakan mulai 24 Julai 2020 (Jumaat).Tempoh permohonan rayuan akan dibuka mulai 7 Ogos 2020 hingga 6 September 2020.
According to a statement released by the Ministry of Finance (MOF), as much as RM3 billion in financial allocations will be given out to benefit an estimate of 4.28 million BSH receivers (3.75 million households and 0.53 singles aged between 40-59 years old). These BSH payments also take into consideration roughly 3.8 million receivers aged 18 years and below. Here’s the list of eligible receivers:
- Those receiving household incomes that total up to less than RM2,000 will receive RM600.
- Singles who earn an income of less than RM2,000 will receive RM400.
- Those receiving household incomes between the range of RM2,001 and RM3,000 will receive RM350.
- Those receiving household incomes between the range of RM3,001 and RM4,000 will receive RM100.
- An additional payment amounting to RM120 per child will be given to households with children aged 18 years old and below (limited to a maximum of four children).
The statement also clarified that those who haven’t received their BSH payments in the first two phases will receive the designated amount assigned to their categories at once, along with the payments under Phase 3, based on the criteria specified by BSH 2020.
All BSH payments will be credited to the banks of individuals who have signed up for Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri Malaysia (LHDNM). For those who don’t own bank accounts, payment can be transferred via cash from BSN until 31st December 2020.
However, the ministry said that to ensure the BSH 2020 programme benefits those who are truly in need, there is a limited time to appeal for your payment. The appeal period will start on 7th August 2020 until 6th September 2020. The appeal period is for individuals who had their applications previously rejected. This period will give them time to collect the necessary documents for LHDNM to reassess the legitimacy of their application.
If you’re unsure of how to appeal for the BSH 2020 scheme, visit their website here or head to your nearest LHDNM/ Pusat Khidmat Hasil (PKH) / Urban Transformation Centre (UTC) for more information.
