On 1 January 2018, SOCSO introduced the PERKESO ASSIST Portal to help employers manage their registration, update records and contribution payments. To use PERKESO ASSIST Portal, employers need to register to obtain the ID for the ASSIST Portal by filling in the form for PERKESO ASSIST Portal ID. Employers can download the form from the SOCSO website and send it to the nearest SOCSO office.
PERKESO ASSIST Portal can be accessed by visiting www.perkeso.gov.my and logging in to ASSIST Portal. (see screenshot below)
In addition to contribution payment via PERKESO ASSIST Portal, at present, employers have the option to manage their contribution payments using other channels as follows:
