KOTA KINABALU - The Sabah government today announces a special grant of RM100,000, which will be given annually to the Sabah Government Pensioners Association to facilitate the implementation of the association's programmes and activities.

Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor, said that the grant was among four new initiatives for retirees as proof of the state government's concern, including an additional special financial assistance of RM150, which will be contributed to the Employees' Provident Fund’s (EPF) i-Saraan accounts.

"The state government will also approve an increase in the maximum amount of rest leave compensation (GCR), from 160 days to 180 days, starting next year, and provide offices for retirees in a number of districts, yet to be identified,” he said here today.

He said this in a statement issued in conjunction with the 2022 Sabah Public Service Retirees Appreciation Ceremony here, celebrating a total of 1,167 individuals who have retired between 2019 and 2021.

Hajiji said that the title of government pensioner opens a new episode and chapter for pensioners to contribute in whatever way they can to the community, by using their experience and knowledge gained while working in the public service.

"The state government will plan more programmes to increase the involvement of government retirees, who have skills and expertise in determining, monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of state government initiatives,” he said.

Therefore, he hopes that retirees who have left the government service will continue to instill the spirit of love for the country, and maintain their support and confidence in the leaders and the ruling government. - BERNAMA
