How to Invest? • The amount that can be invested is 20% of the savings in excess of the Basic Savings required in Account 1. • Minimum investment is RM1,000. • Investments can be made once every three months. • Sales Charge per unit – up to 3% of net asset value per unit as regulated by the EPF.

Required Basic Savings in Account 1 Example: Mr A is 35 years old. From his EPF latest statement, the amount in his Account 1 is RM80,000. According to the above Basic Savings table, his basic savings required in Account 1 is RM46,000. This means he is qualified to withdraw the minimum RM1,000 and maximum RM6,800 from his EPF savings to be invested in unit trust. CALCULATION: (RM80,000 – RM46,000) X 20% =RM6,800
