He said, based on a thorough research and studies during the recovery phase of the pandemic, some of the Keluarga Malaysia are still affected by the pandemic in terms of economic, loss of income and they are in the midst of rebuilding their lives.

“The government listens, study and review all requests of withdrawing the EPF savings.

“Although the government has granted the permission for this special EPF withdrawal, however, I plead the contributors to maintain their savings unless they are truly desperate.
