The government has agreed to expand the scope of the one-off payments offered to frontliners battling Covid-19, and also the e-Belia incentive offered to Malaysian youth.

These two initiatives were announced earlier during the tabling of Budget 2021. During the winding up of the Budget in Parliament today, Finance Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Zafrul Abdul Aziz announced expansions to the one-off payment schemes.

“The government has agreed to extend the special one-off payment of RM300 to all other frontliners,” said Tengku Zafrul. These would include non-medical frontliners such as the police, army, and RELA. When the Budget was first tabled, the one-off payment was only given to the Health Ministry’s frontliners in a sum of RM500.

Meanwhile, the special RM50 incentive under e-Belia e-wallet credit for youths aged between 18 and 20 years old has been expanded as well. Recipients of e-Belia will now be granted RM100 in e-wallet credit instead of the RM50 announced previously. Moreover, the scheme is extended to include 1.1 million students from institutions of higher learning who are above 20 years old.

Alongside these additions to Budget 2021, further amendments were made including the EPF Akaun 1 withdrawal scheme and other adjustments.
