Here's great news to start off the new year!
Malaysians will soon be able to make payments for government services through a convenient new online platform called MyPay.
According to Digital News Asia, MyPay aims to be a one-stop online platform for Malaysians to find info, make payments, and other services such as:
- Finding out when your licence expires or where your voting station is,
- Checking PTPTN information and making payments,
- Checking and paying for local council and police summons,
- Paying for assessment tax, quit rent, and
- Checking your insolvency status, among others.
Why use MyPay if there are already other online government platforms like EG Services?
According to the MyPay's co-founder and chief executive officer Nick Liew, MyPay will be user-friendly and provide more services.
The platform currently works with Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), Election Commission of Malaysia (SPR), Road Transport Department Malaysia (JPJ), and National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) among others.
Other agencies like Employees Provident Fund (KWSP) and Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) will be joining the platform soon, reported Malay Mail.
Here's how MyPay works:
The online platform is free to access and will be officially launched by the end of January. However, according to RinggitPlus, you can request for early access by using the code: MYPAYREVIEW.
To sign up, all you need to do is to key in your IC number, mobile number, email address, and password. Upon registration, the website will pull information from various government agencies and display it on your MyPay dashboard.
Using the platform is free. However, when making payments for loans, taxes, or summons, a service charge of RM0.50 - RM1 will be charged per transaction.
