Attention all unmarried Malaysians, here’s a perk of being single! 😛

According to Malaysia Kini, the Finance Ministry has reinstated the cash aid for single, low-income individuals in Malaysia and therefore, they can now be eligible for RM100 under the Cost of Living Aid (BSH) scheme, as announced by Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng on 19 February.

He added that this cash aid will be distributed to more than three million singles by the end of March 2019, provided they are registered in the BSH Database. In total, this aid will sum up to RM300 million in public funds.

Lim mentioned that this decision was made after receiving a feedback from Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, as well as Home Minister and Pakatan Harapan Deputy President Muhyiddin Yassin. He explained,

“The Prime Minister stressed that attention should be paid to the cost of living issues affecting the needy as soon as possible.”

“Harapan deputy president Muhyiddin also urged that unmarried youth who are working, but earn a low wage be given assistance,” he added. 

Besides that, he said that the ministry will also review the BSH aid for singles this year and it will be presented to the cabinet for a decision.

According to The Star, Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH), formerly recognised as BR1M, was proposed with the aim to provide financial aid to all the lower-income communities in Malaysia. Previously, singles above 21-years-old and earning less than RM2,000 per month could receive the cash aid of RM450; however, this category was later abolished.

Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had also previously proposed to Lim that the cost of living aid provision be reinstated for singles, as reported in The Star. He was quoted as saying,

“When I met with Lim about the BSH or BR1M, I read in the news that the youth are no longer given assistance under this scheme.”

“I made a request to the finance minister that this assistance should be continued for youth who are without income or without jobs,” he mentioned.

With all that said, if you have questions regarding the BSH, you may contact 1-800-88-2747 or drop an email to [email protected]ury.gov.my if you have more queries.
