What is a SSFW Number and why should I enter it for my foreign employee?

With effect from 1st January 2019, foreign employees are required to be covered under SOCSO's Employment Injury Scheme. Under that category, only the employer contributes.

Therefore, the employer is required to register their foreign employees via the Perkeso Assist Portal, after which Perkeso will generate a Social Security Foreign Worker Number (SSFW No.). This SSFW number should be entered in the system under Employee > Employee Name > Statutory Requirements so it can be included in PayrollPanda's Assist Portal txt file.
