  1. My condolences to the family.

    Many deceased have monies in EPF, CoOperatives, etc and benefits available from SOCSO and if the person was a member of any association.

    Suggest children go through the old documents to confirm as not many parents tell their spouses, siblings or children of what they have or where they have. I know this is not the right time to say all this but it is important otherwise the money if any, will end up with transfer to UNCLAIMED MONEYS REGISTRAR from where it is very cumbersome to collect. Apologies if misunderstood.

    ALL GURDWARAS-NGOs SHOULD PROVIDE SUCH ADVICE AS AND WHEN NECESSARY WHO MAY BE AFFECTED INCLUDING THOSE STILL LIVING TO PREVENT RECOVERY PROBLEMS.
