The deadline for the public to submit the application form for the RM500 Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) scheme has been extended to Feb 10, 2012.

Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah said the form could be submitted at all Inland Revenue Board (IRB) offices and agencies handling the aid.

The one-month extension came following appeals from those who were unable to submit the form by Tuesday. 

The forms had been distributed since last month to assist households earning below RM3,000 a month.

Ahmad Husni said successful applicants would be given vouchers which they could cash at all Bank Simpanan Nasional, CIMB and Maybank branches.

“The distribution will begin on Sunday and is expected to take two months for completion.

“During the period, successful applicants will receive letters informing them of the dates and venues of the voucher presentations.

“The banks will also provide mobile counters for recipients to cash the vouchers which are valid until April 15,” he said.

Ahmad Husni said besides the letters, applicants could also check their application status by calling the hotline 1-800-222-500 and 1-300-88-3010 beginning Monday.

The hotline will operate between 9am and 5pm on working days.

Unsuccessful applicants can appeal by filling a special form available all IRB offices and the selected agencies.

The form can also be downloaded here or MOF’ website (

As of Tuesday, 3,102,054 applications had been approved from 4,123,713 forms received.

“The rest are being processed,” he said.

  15. Thanks for the reply. From the day i submitted, i didnt get any MOF letter to confirm.. How can i know i did approve or not. How can i check? Thx.

  16. Hi….im single and no dependant but my salary is below 1500 with this i have to pay all my bills, car loan, house rent, petrol and also have to use for my household u think this much salary enough for me? Am i eligible to get RM500? Please reply.

  17. forget to tell one more, my parents both are already passaway. I am alone and i am 43yrs old.

  18. What is the last extension date to apply for BR1M RM500. Appreciate your update. Thanks for the assistance.

  19. I am retired and not working any more. Since I am from private sector and do not have pension and will depend on EPF. My wife is teaching. Am I entitled?

  20. I am single girl working and drawing RM2500. My father is retired and mother is working. Am I entitle to this BR1M RM500.

  21. Hi Kuldip, no sure if any further extension of time as it was not announced.

    You are qualified & entitled if your wife’s income is less than RM3,000 per month.

  22. Hi Belvinder, yes, if your mother’s monthly income is less than RM500.

    Since the combined household income must be less than RM3,000, you are earning RM2,500 per month, in order to qualify, your mother must be earning less than RM500. Otherwise, you will not be qualified for the aid.

    Hope this help. :)


  24. Any extension of deadline for RM500 aid application? Some say until 15 March. Is that correct?

    Many thanks in advance, Angelina.

    • Hi William, as far as I know, there is no further extension of time for the aid registration.

      The extension of time is for appeal cases where all rejected applications can submit their appeal forms & supporting documents to MOF latest by 15 March 2012 for second review by MOF for their applications.

  25. Hi angelina,

    I have yet to submit the form for my mom cos it’s convenient for me to go over LHDN. Can I still proceed with the submission? and any convenient places?

    • Hi May, I am not sure would there be any extension of date for the aid application. You may contact MOF or LHDN at the numbers found at the first comment of this post.
