During the Economic Stimulus Package announcement, the PM has said,
“Nobody will be left behind.”
This is referring to the monetary help that the government will be giving selected groups of people in light of the MCO. After that announcement, many were left wondering how they were going to get the money and through which channel.
Fret’ not as the Finance Ministry has put out a handy guide on how the money will be distributed.
Guide to the money distribution
First things first, the money will be given in two different phases, which is the end of April and the end of May. The following table will give you a clearer view.
|Category||Household income of less than RM4,000||Household income from RM4,001 to RM8,000||Single person with less than RM2,000 income||Single person with income from RM2,001 to RM4,000|
|Total amount of money that will be given by the government||RM1,600||RM1,000||RM800||RM500|
|Payout phases||April: RM1,000
|You don’t need to apply if, …||Your household is already approved and put under the Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) list||Your household has already registered under LHDNM||You are already approved and put under the Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) list||You have already registered under LHDNM|
|Payout method||Directly through the bank account you registered in your BSH account||Directly through the bank account you registered in your LHDNM account||Directly through the bank account you registered in your BSH account||Directly through the bank account you registered in your LHDNM account|

Beware of scammers
Other than that, the Ministry would also like to warn our fellow Malaysians that there are scammers out there who are getting bolder and bolder. They have advised us to not give out any personal information to third-parties who are saying that they can “help” us get the monetary help from the government.
We hope this clears up some doubts that you have!
