KUALA LUMPUR: Phase Three of the Bantuan Keluarga Malaysia (BKM) involving an allocation of RM2.2 billion will be credited to the accounts of eligible recipients in stages starting Tuesday, says Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said the initiative will benefit 8.7 million households, unmarried senior citizens or widowers, single individuals, and others whose appeals have been approved.
According to the prime minister, the series of payments would be settled by Sept 27.
“The government is always concerned with the welfare of the people. It is a priority especially since people are facing challenging times due to the rise in the cost of goods across the world.
“The Bantuan Keluarga Malaysia is a commitment from the government to ease the burden of the people, especially the B40 group,” Ismail said in a statement today.
According to the prime minister, under Phase 3, each recipient will receive RM900, while more than 80,000 whose applications were approved, would receive up to RM2,350 based on their category of eligibility, including the Additional Cash Incentive announced by the government in June.
Ismail said as of September, RM5.9 billion had been allocated to BKM recipients through the various phases set by the government.
The prime minister added that RM2.1 billion would be allocated for Phase 4 BKM and paid to those eligible by December.
“The government is committed to helping all Malaysians, especially the targetted group. Their social welfare status will also be taken into consideration in the 2023 budget.”
Ismail said the public could check the status of the payments from Tuesday at https://bkm.hasil.gov.my.
