In the early days of the MCO, lots of people were facing financial difficulties as they were unable to go out to work. That problem was temporarily solved with the government giving out the BPN financial aid. Since some people who have applied earlier on have received the first payment, they might be wondering when they’ll receive the second payment.

For people who have just applied for the BPN, fret not as you’re on the list as well albeit it might be a little late! People who have just applied along with people whose appeals have been approved will be able to see the lump sum in their bank accounts from 15th May till 20th May 2020.
According to the FAQ, there are people who are eligible but have not received the financial aid due to reasons such as:
- Has no bank account
- Failed to update bank account details
- Transfer of funds to banking account failed
For these affected people, you can go to your nearest Bank Simpanan Nasional starting from 15th May and show them your BPN serial number to cash out! However, don’t forget to wear a mask, practise social distancing and bring your hand sanitiser!
If you have no necessary business outside, it’s best to stay at home as it is currently the safest place for us all now!
