What is SOCSO?


The Social Security Organization (SOCSO), also known as PERKESO, provides social security protections for employees in Malaysia. 

SOCSO contributions are mandatory for some employees and employers, aimed at providing financial assistance in the event of work-related injuries, disabilities, illnesses, or death.

What are the current SOCSO contribution rates?


Contribution rates are split between employers and employees, and they may vary depending on two key factors:

    • Employee’s Age: There are generally two contribution categories based on employee age:
      • Below 60 Years Old: This category applies to the Employment Injury and Invalidity Scheme.
      • 60 Years Old and Above: This category applies to the Employment Injury Scheme only.
    • Employee’s Salary: In some cases, the contribution rate might be capped based on a specific monthly salary limit.
