382 Utusan employees file for Socso aid

Three hundred and eighty-two of the 815 workers of the Utusan Group have filed their claims to obtain monetary assistance as at Nov 1 after their company ceased operations on Oct 9.
The Social Security Organisation (Socso) in a statement today said 27 applicants confirmed losing their jobs and met the eligibility conditions to process payments for the Employment Insurance System (SIP).
“Those who are eligible will obtain five months of benefits under the Job Search Allowance (JSA). For instance, those having a salary of RM4,000 are eligible to receive RM3,160 JSA (after seven days); RM1,975 ( second month); RM1,580 (third and fourth month) and RM1,185 for the fifth month,” the statement said.
Socso also advised the remaining 433 Utusan Group employees to come forward to claim their SIP benefits soon.

According to the statement, all workers involved can submit their applications online via Socso’s portal at the nearest Socso office.
The statement added, Sosco was also cooperating with the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) to identify the types of training suitable for the former employees of Utusan Group. - Bernama
