RM8,800,000,000, that’s the amount of unclaimed money in Malaysia alone. What makes up this crazy number? Bank accounts, insurance payouts, retirement funds (I.e.: EPF/KWSP) and more are left unclaimed after a person dies. And guess what are the 2 biggest reasons why families don’t claim them?

  • They don’t know that it exists.
  • They don’t know how to claim it.

Here’s the kicker, the government is considering using that money. Our money! Let’s not add to that statistic, after all, we work hard our entire lives in order to save up for our loved ones. Not the *cough*government*cough*. So let’s make sure your family truly understands your finances and what they’re entitled to.
