KUALA LUMPUR: The Cost of Living Aid (BSH) payment for approved appellants will be made on Monday (Sept 30) as proof of government’s concern for the low-income group (B40), said Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng.
He said the payment is expected to benefit nearly 220,000 recipients with an estimated allocation of RM120 million.
“The payment will be credited directly into their respective bank accounts registered during the BSH 2019 appeal application,” he said in a statement here today.
Lim explained that a total of RM4.2 billion has been disbursed in the entire BSH 2019 payment phases (including the appeals) to nearly 3.9 million qualified households.
“It also involves additional assistance of RM120 per child to be limited to a maximum of four dependent children involving nearly 3.6 million children of the BSH recipients,” he added.
Dependent children refer to children aged 18 years and below while those with disabilities are not limited by their age.
