An initiative under Budget 2022, the RM300 million ePemula programme is projected to benefit more than two million youths in the country, according to Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz.

Malaysians aged 18 to 20, as well as full-time students enrolled in courses equivalent to diploma or SKM4 and above in higher educational institutions, are eligible to receive RM150 ePemula credit through the programme.

This one-time government aid can be claimed via participating digital wallet service providers from 8am on 11 April to 11.59pm on 1 June. It will be valid for use until 11.59pm on 10 June.

Besides easing expenses for youths, ePemula is intended to support brick-and-mortar businesses, especially during this economic recovery period, while also promoting cashless payment habits.

By claiming through ShopeePay, you'll be able to spend your ePemula credit at any place that accepts cashless payments, in addition to receiving a guaranteed RM500 worth of vouchers
