In a bid to make it easier for Malaysians to find out if they have any unclaimed monies held by the government, the Accountant General’s Department of Malaysia (AGD) has recently launched the Electronic Government Unclaimed Money Information System (eGUMIS).

If you’re wondering, unclaimed monies basically include any unpaid salaries, dividends, tender deposits and insurance claims, matured fixed deposits, as well as money in dormant trade, savings, current, and fixed deposit accounts.

As discovered by SoyaCincau, the eGUMIS portal is now live, significantly improving and simplifying the enquiry process. What used to be a tedious process of queuing up at the AGD office can now be done online in a few clicks.

Here’s how you can use eGUMIS to check if you’ve got any unclaimed cash with the government:

  1. If you’re new to eGUMIS, you’ll have to first register an account on the eGUMIS portal. You will receive a temporary password via your email.
  2. Once you have registered, log in to your account and update your password and profile.
  3. To check for unclaimed monies, click on “Click Here to Search for Unclaimed Monies”/“Klick Di Sini Untuk Carian Wang Tak Dituntut”.
  4. Key in your IC number, and the search result will show if you have any unclaimed monies.

Do note, though, that while you can help to check for your family members and friends as well, you are only allowed 2 searches per day.

If you do have unclaimed monies, then you will have to proceed to a separate application process with the AGD. The current eGUMIS has, unfortunately, yet to integrate online refund services as part of its functions.

According to Deputy Finance Minister Amiruddin Hamzah in November 2019, the government had been holding on to RM10.8622 billion in unclaimed monies as of 31 October 2019, although RM2.085 billion had been refunded.

In the same announcement, Amiruddin also mentioned that eGUMIS was being put through a stress test to ensure that it would not suffer system crashes upon launching. At that time, the portal was slated to be launched late 2019 or early 2020.
