Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Abdul Aziz said that individuals who applied for the Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat (BPR) aid but were rejected can now submit their appeals between 15 to 30 June 2021.

According to the minister, applicants who wish to submit an appeal will need to provide relevant documents to the Inland Revenue Board (LHDN). The documents required will vary depending on the rejection code of each applicant’s initial BPR application.

Tengku Zafrul also stated that applicants can either submit their appeals online via the BPR website, or by delivering the BPR 2021 appeal form to the nearest LHDN branch, Revenue Service Centre (PKH), or Urban Transformation Centre. Those opting for the latter method are reminded to set an appointment with the offices in advance before heading over.

“Once the BPR database is updated, payments will be channelled to applicants in August (for additional BPR) and September (BPR Phase 3),” the minister further said, adding that this appeal process is intended to ensure that the assistance reaches those who are truly in need.

The BPR aid – which was introduced during Budget 2021 as a replacement for Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) – is intended as an assistance package for lower-income B40 households. It carries a more specific set of eligibility criteria, with hopes that it will be more efficient in reaching the people.

Tengku Zafrul further said that the government has paid out RM4.6 billion to a total of 8.4 million BPR recipients from the B40 segment in February, March, and May 2021. During the reveal of the latest PEMERKASA+ stimulus package, the government had also injected an additional RM2.1 billion into the BPR aid to continue helping existing recipients.

Head on over to the official BPR website to find out more about the aid. Alternatively, you can check out the FAQ for the BPR 2021 appeal here.
