What is EIS?

The Employment Insurance System, (EIS) was implemented in January 2018 as a social security network aimed at helping workers who lost their jobs for financial assistance and seeking new jobs by PERKESO.




EIS Contribution Rate


All private sector employers need to pay monthly contributions for each employee.(Exempt from civil servants, domestic servants and self-employed).

  • The contribution rate for the Employment Insurance System (EIS) is from 0.2% of employer shares and 0.2% of the employee's share of the employee's monthly salary.

  • All employees aged 18 years to 60 years old must be nominated except for employees aged 57 years and above and no contribution has been paid before reaching 57 years.


Effective 1st September 2022, PERKESO will enforce a new wage ceiling for contributions from RM4,000 to RM5,000 per month. The contribution amount that apply to employees with salaries exceeding RM4,000 per month is stated in the Third Schedule, Act 4 and the Second Schedule, Act 800. For employees with salaries exceeding RM5,000 per month, the contribution amount is subject to the wage ceiling of RM5,000. Accordingly, the contribution payment for the month of September 2022 and the subsequent months shall be made by the employer according to the new wage ceiling.
