Kuala Lumpur, 6 November 2008-- Members Of The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) Will Be Able To Benefit From The Reduction Of The Employees’ Monthly Statutory Contribution Rate By Three Per Cent, From 11 Per Cent To 8 Per Cent, Effective From January 2009 Wage For A Period Of Two Years.

Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister YAB Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak made the announcement during the winding up speech for the Ministry of Finance on the 2009 Budget on Tuesday. The move will help increase members’ disposable income in the context of the current economic outlook. At the same time, the higher disposable income will support domestic consumption and thus help sustain the momentum of economic growth.

The decision to reduce members’ statutory contribution rate was taken twice before in 2001 and 2003 as part of an economic stimulus package.

For ease of members and to better facilitate implementation of the measure, the reduction of the employees’ contribution from 11 per cent to 8 per cent will be made automatically, effective from January 2009 wage. This arrangement will be implemented until December 2010 wage.

However if members wish to maintain the contribution rate at 11 per cent may choose to do so by filling up Form KWSP 17A (AHL). Once completed, the forms can be submitted to the members’ respective employers for submission to the EPF.

In the meantime, the EPF will be issuing a new monthly contributions schedule accordingly. Members and employers may obtain the new schedule and Form KWSP 17A (AHL) from all EPF branches or download them from our website, myEPF, at from 1 December 2008 onwards.

would you like to live in sky?

" MVRDV and co-architects ADEPT have won a competition to design a new tower in rødovre, an independent municipality of copenhagen, denmark. 'sky village' is a 116 meter tall tower which combines single family homes and skyscraper to create a vertical village. based on a flexible grid structure, the building is made-up of 60m² 'pixels' or units, that are arranged around the central core of the tower and can be joined or re-designated to form larger spaces. the lower floors of the tower accommodate a public plaza with retail, restaurants and office units, while the middle portion of the tower leans towards the north and creates a variety of sky gardens along the terraced south side of the building. the overall shape is meant to be a reflection of copenhagen's historical spire and aims to blend present day high-rise buildings into the skyline of the city.
