Private Pension Administrator Malaysia (PPA), the central administrator for the voluntary Private Retirement Schemes (PRS) welcomes the recent Budget 2020 proposal that will allow PRS members to make pre-retirement withdrawals for purposes of healthcare and housing without any tax penalty.
“PPA is grateful to the Government for the introduction of 0% tax penalty for pre-retirement withdrawals of PRS from sub-account B, which holds 30% of the savings for purposes of healthcare and housing. This move reflects the Government’s understanding and commitment to help all Malaysians use a portion of their retirement savings for their needs. With this proposal, which shall take effect from next year, we are positive that more Malaysians will come forward to save more for their retirements through PRS,” said Husaini Hussin, Chief Executive Officer of PPA.
“In recognition by the Government of rising healthcare cost, withdrawal for immediate family members is also allowed” added Husaini.
