What is EPF i-Akaun ???

Since EPF go online years ago, many people are disappointed by the way the website was maintained and updated. However, as time passed by, EPF had successfully undergone a face-lift to its website. If you could notice the changes, I'm brave enough to say that EPF website nowadays is very informative, convenient, and well-organized. 

I know, I know, maybe you are saying: “Is it really so goooood ???”
The fact is, I am not an EPF staff, then why I need to convince you ?
Let's have a look with you own eyes.

From now onwards, there will be an EPF series written in this blog.
In this 1st series, I would like to touch on i-Akaun by EPF.

What is i-Akaun?
i-Akaun is a member’s or an employer’s personal account to be used on the Internet, specifically on myEPF portal. By having this account, users are able to access EPF services that are being offered online.

What are the online services offered?
For members:
- View and print account statement for current and previous year.
- View withdrawal status and history.
- View EPF transaction activities.
- Update mailing address and personal details.
- View eligible withdrawal amount for various approved purposes.

For employers:
- Checking and printing the current and previous account statements.
- Checking the EPF transaction activities.
- Access to Form A: Credited contribution archive.
- Checking employee’s EPF number.
- Checking contribution with incomplete information.
- Dividend share calculator for Government employers.
- Registration of new employees.

Wow… How to set up my EPF i-Akaun ?

For members:
  1. Visit the Smart Kiosk or Counter to generate your own Activation Code.
  2. Then, surf the EPF website to activate your i-Akaun before the expiry date.
For employers:
  1. Register i-Akaun for Employer at the EPF website.
  2. EPF will e-mail or mail you the details of your Activation Code for confirmation purposes.
  3. Visit any EPF offices together with a copy of the e-mail/letter to collect the Activation Code. Please bring the required documents stated.
  4. Activate your i-Akaun before the expiry date.
Since you may face difficulties to locate EPF offices, I suggest you get it done easily at any of the EPF kiosks which can be found in certain branches of the following bank:

  • AmBank
  • RHB Bank
  • RHB Easy
  • RHB Islamic
  • CIMB Bank
  • Public Bank
  • HSBC Bank
  • CitiBank
  • National Heart Institute
  • Permodalan Nasional Bhd

 It’s FREE + Hassle Free. What are you waiting for?
