The Employee Provident Fund of Malaysia has launched a mobile application to help you manage your account better. The app, called EPF i-Akaun, can be downloaded for free from the Google Play store. The EPF has developed the application in-house and it can be run on any Android 2.2 phone.
Datuk Ibrahim Taib, the EPF’s Deputy CEO for Operations said that the app will cater to a growing demand for mobile-based service delivery. He also said that the application will give EPF account holders instant access to their savings.
What features are available on the EPF app?
The EPF app comes with a number of features. You can track your savings and ensure that you’re maintaining the basic saving requirement. You can also check your EPF statement quickly and easily and be sure that your employer is submitting your contributions on time. The app will also update you on the latest news from the EPF office and provide directions to EPF offices across the country.
Mr. Ibrahim said that as of now, the app contained only a few basic features. He added that in the future, more features will be added to the app to make it more comprehensive. Note that to use the app, you need to obtain an activation code. You can get it from your nearest EPF branch or you can call the EPF’s toll-free number at 03-8922-6000.
