Clr Albert Ho Wai Mun aims to spread awareness about the importance of the PERKESO’s Self-Employment Social Security Scheme to self employed individuals such as babysitters, cleaners, hawkers & small traders. This Scheme protects self-employed persons against employment injuries including occupational diseases and accidents during work-related activities.
Many self-employed persons do not contribute to SOCSO due to various restrictions, including lack of documentation, age restrictions, and industry restrictions thus self-employed people from low-income families neglect to insure themselves because they cannot afford the high insurance premiums.
Clr Albert Ho Wai Mun also stressed that he is very concerned and knows the pressure of life that the current B40 families are facing. Keeping this in mind he has arranged 2 programs that will be beneficial to the community.
