Social Security Organisation (Socso) has received 248,216 applications from employers involving 1.98 million workers for the Wage Subsidy Programme (PSU) since it opened on April 1 until yesterday.
“Most of the applications were from employers of micro and small enterprises,” Datuk Seri Dr Mohammed Azman Aziz Mohammed, Chief Executive Officer of Socso, said in a statement.
He also reminded employers to fill in the correct Business Registration Number (BRN) when submitting their PSU application, otherwise the subsidy payment cannot be credited to their company account.
“Employers are advised to refer to the bank to obtain their BRN numbers for PSU applications,” he said.
The BRN number is registered by the employer with the bank at the time of opening the bank account.
Following the Movement Control Order (MCO), employers could only apply online, namely via prihatin.perkeso.gov.my. PSU applications are open until Sept 15.
