What are the differences between the two SOCSO categories?

Contributions to SOCSO are divided into two categories, as follows:


Employment Injury and Invalidity Scheme

  • All employees younger than 60 years old contribute under this category, unless they began contributing at the age of 55 or above.

  • Under this category, every month, the employer contributes a value based on the employee's monthly salary up to a maximum value of RM 69.05, and the employee contributes up to a maximum value of RM 19.75.


Employment Injury Scheme

  • For employees who are 60 years old and above.

  • For employees who began contributing to SOCSO at the age of 55 or above.

  • For insured people receiving an invalidity pension while still working, and receiving less than one third of their average monthly salary before invalidity.

  • Under this category, the employee does not contribute, and every month, the employer contributes a value equivalent to 1.25% of the employee's monthly salary, up to a maximum value of RM 49.40.
