What are the rates for EPF?

The employees' monthly statutory contribution rate dropped from 11% to 8% for members below age 60 and 5.5% to 4% for those age 60 and above with effect from March 2016 until December 2017 salary. If you wish to continue to contribute at 11%, you will have to fill in form KWSP17A and submit to your nearest KWSP branch. 

The employers' statutory contribution rates will remain unchanged, meaning either 13% for salaries below RM 5000 or 12% for salaries above RM 5000. The minimum rates of contribution (you may elect to contribute more, please click here to find out how) are as follows:
