KUALA LUMPUR: The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) is launching another campaign to boost awareness among contributors to name their next-of-kin (inheritors) for their savings from today until Oct 19.
The campaign involved using newspapers and radio, promotions at service counters and EPF's Calls Management Centre, official Facebook and Twitter (KWSPBuzz) sites, said EPF's Public Relations General Manager Nik Affendi Jaafar.
"The message of the campaign this time reminds members on the importance of naming their next-of-kin as a reflection of love for their families and the difficulties of dependents when death takes place.
"As such, it is very important for members who have yet to name their next-of-kin to do so quickly," he said in a statement, here, today. He said members could nominate anyone but were advised to name their closest relatives such as their spouses and children.
"For Muslim members, the next-of-kin only acts as administrator who is responsible for distributing the savings under Faraid law (Islamic Law of Inheritance).
Nik Affendi also said members should name their next-of-kin when they were healthy to avoid any attempts at cheating by certain quarters seeking to influence the decision of members when they were unwell.
Members needed to fill up the EPF 4 form and send it personally to the closest EPF branch to nominate their next-of-kin, he added. BERNAMA
