PUTRAJAYA, Aug 16 – The third and final phase of the 2017 1Malaysia People’s Aid (BR1M) payment will be made from today in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidiladha celebration, which falls on Sept 1. In a statement today, the Finance Ministry said payment for those who passed the appeal stage, however, would be made on Aug 29.
The ministry said it is hoped that the BR1M payment will help the people to make preparations to celebrate Hari Raya Aidiladha. The ministry said the BR1M payment will be credited directly to the recipients’ accounts, but those who do not have an account number, a letter of approval will be sent to their address and can be turned into cash at any Bank Simpanan Nasional branch.
