Advice for financial resources

Dear nurse, my Amman might be undergoing cyberknife treatment. He is Malaysian, an entrepreneur and does not have insurance coverage. Are there financial assistance or avenue out there to explore? Thanks

Hi Sharon,

Thank you for your question re- financial assistance or avenue to explore?

As he is a Malaysian, he has a few options that he may consider exploring.

1. MAKNA website https://makna.org.my
2. If he is a EPF contributor-log on to www.kwsp.gov.my or contact EPF’s call centre 03 – 8922- 6000
3. Social organisations such as Rotary Club and relate his personal challenges.
4. SOCSO – there is eligibility criteria. For details please visit http://www.perkeso.gov.my/en/sosial-security-protection-schemes/invalidity-scheme.html
The applicant must fill in the forms and provide relevant information as listed on the SOCSO website.

All the best to your Amman Sharon.
Mary. Cancer Information Service Nurse
