BRIM 2.0 payments to begin early next year

Published on: Tuesday, October 09, 2012

Putra Jaya: People eligible to receive the 1Malaysia People's Aid (BR1M) 2.0 will begin getting their money early next year, Second Finance Minister Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah announced Monday.

No definite date had been set yet for the distribution, he told a news conference at the ministry, here.

Ahmad Husni said registration of BR1M 2.0 applicants would begin on Nov 1, but only two categories of applicants had to fill in the forms-those single people aged 21 and above earning less than RM2,000 per month and those who were left out of this year's BR1M programme for whatever reason.

The forms for the new applicants were available at the offices of the Internal Revenue Board (IRB) and district and federal development offices, he said, adding that checks would be made at the relevant agencies such as the Employees Provident Fund and IRB.

This year's BR1M recipients were not required to apply again as they would be automatically eligible for the aid, he said.- Bernama
