Socso urged to get more self-employed to sign up


SIBU: The Social Security Organisation (Socso) has been urged to create awareness among the self-employed about its Self-Employment Social Security Scheme (SKSPS).

“I propose that Sosco implement a large-scale programme to introduce this scheme,” said Sarawak Assistant Local Government and Housing Minister Dr Annuar Rapaee.

“Take Sibu for example. A large number of self-employed individuals are from the B40 group.

“For example, p-hailing riders, who have to quickly deliver orders to earn more, are seen as high risk (of being involved in accidents) when they are on the road.

“Therefore, this SKSPS is suitable to protect them,” he said at the Socso golden jubilee virtual do on Friday (Oct 1).

Elaborating further, the Nangka assemblyman said he wanted the scheme to be introduced more widely to create awareness among the self-employed.

He said the scheme was beneficial to the family should something untoward happened to the breadwinner.

“That’s why, Socso should publicise it more.

“We should try to get as many as possible to sign up for SKSPS.

“They can go to the Sibu Socso office to get more information.”
