Some of the members from our BR1M Facebook page reported that they had gotten their BR1M payment through bank this morning. So far, banks which were paying as earlier as 12th January included CIMB, RHB, Maybank and BSN.
However some Maybank users still did not received anything yet. Majority mem bers from Sabah and Sarawak also has yet to receive the BR1M aid. You can check your BR1M status to know the result of your application. If your result shows ‘dalam proses’, it doesn’t mean you will not receive anything. Some of the members claimed they received the money in their bank although the system says it’s still processing it. So just go and check your bank through online banking.
Note that payment’s priority is given to those states which effected by flood, reported in our previous article.
According to the above picture which we got from our facebook’s member, banks except above mentioned banks – CIMB, Bank Rakyat, Bank Islam and Bank Muamalat, the BR1M payment is dated on 13 – 14 onward.
So far there’s yet any announcement for those who failed in their application. The good thing is you can still apply or update before end of January 2015.
