EPF today declares 5.65% dividend rate for year 2009. That is much higher that 2008 dividend rate which was 4.50%. EPF also announced it earlier than last year which was 17 Mar 2009. The news also mentioned that "The dividend rate was declared on the back of the highest ever net income achieved of RM19.63 billion". Wow... RM19.63 billion @ RM19 630 000 000! Impressive! That is really a lot of money!
How I wish we will be receiving more than 8.50% because that was the highest ever declared dividend which was for year 1983-1987. Anyway I am thankful for the 5.65%.
The 2009 dividends will be credited to its members’ accounts on 8 March 2010, next Monday.
