Updated: Nov 13, 2018

All of us know what’s EPF is but how many of you know about Private Retirement Scheme (PRS)?

What is PRS?

To put it simply, PRS is like your Employees Provident Fund (EPF) or KWSP. The objectives of both are identical: save money today and benefit from interest receivables and eventually withdraw the fund upon retirement.

The most important difference here is that PRS is a voluntary contribution unlike the EPF which is mandatory. Individuals are free to invest any amount, whenever they please.

Even though the PRS is managed by private companies but PRS is still being monitored closely by our government body to ensure the money invested are in good hands.

But here is the good news.

If you are under 30, now is a good time to sign up for Private Retirement Scheme (PRS) as the government is giving free RM1,000 to Malaysian! (until 31st December 2018 only) So for a minimum of RM1,000 that you contribute, you’ll get a matching RM1,000 from the government. Yes, just like that!

Who is eligible?

1. You need to be a new member of PRS

2. You are aged between 20 – 30 (based on your date of birth)

3. Accumulated investment with more then RM1,000

If you have two PRS accounts with RM500 invested in each of them within a year, you will not be qualified for the incentive. This incentive has been valid from 2014 and will end in 2018, but your account will stay open until you retire.

Aside from that, another important perks when you put money in PRS.

What are they? You will be able to claim the individual tax relief of up to RM4,000 per year on top of your EPF’s tax relief!! You will not just able to get RM1,000 but you also can get a tax relief from it!

Who are the PRS Providers?
