Good news, Selangor peeps! The government has announced on November 13th that they will be offering an RM300 incentive each for Selangor couples who get married. Selangor Youth, Sports, and Human Capital Development exco member Mohd Khairuddin Othman made the announcement and said that this program is for the youths under 40 years old and for their first marriage.
According to Bernama, he said that this program is known as Insentif Generasi Muda Selangor (iGems), and couples would have to attend a family course before they are eligible for the incentive. One person is entitled to RM300 each so if both are from Selangor and attends the course, so together they can receive RM600.
This program is different from the previous incentive given by the government, and they have decided to start a new one in order to try and reduce the divorce rate in Selangor. Selangor has one of the highest divorce rates in the country, with a third of marriages less than five years old ending in divorce. In 2017 alone, there were 12,203 couples who got divorced in Selangor.
This program is available for those who are married after 1st September 2018 and applications start from today, November 18th. The course is supposed to inform and guide couples who are going to tie the knot on various aspects such as financial management, emotional management and parenting skills so that they are more prepared for the future.
This course is only about half a day and couples must attend it to be eligible for the RM300 incentive. The RM300 will be given in the form of a voucher which can be redeemed from any Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) branch within 45 days.
These are the terms and conditions for eligible couples:
1. Must be Malaysian
2. Born in Selangor or,
3. Living in Selangor for 10 years or more (Address on MyKad must be in Selangor)
4. Married for less than six months when registration is made
5. Must be the first marriage
6. Aged 40 years and below during registration
7. Registration is open for couples who got married starting from 1st September 2018 (For couples who marry from 1st September 2018 to 31st December 2019, please note that you can only register until 31st June 2020. If you get married from 1st January 2020 onwards, then do note that you can apply six months after your registration of marriage)
8. Couples must attend and finish the course together even though only one person is eligible for the incentive
