Private Retirement Scheme (PRS)
The introduction of PRS aims to provide an additional pillar to support the retirement needs of Malaysians. A PRS is a voluntary scheme designed to help individuals accumulate savings for retirement.
It is an additional way to boost total retirement savings, whether you are an Employees Provident Fund (“EPF”) member or not. If you are an EPF member, the PRS can complement your EPF savings. It also helps the self-employed to build up their savings, and encourages employers to provide extra benefits for their workers beyond their mandatory contribution.
Each PRS will include a range of retirement funds that individuals may choose to invest in based on their own retirement needs, goals and risk appetite. Such funds are managed in a way that is consistent with the objective of building savings for retirement with a prudent spread of risk.
