What is this programme about?
The pension card is an identification card issued to all retired civil servants. This identification card enables pensioners to obtain medical benefits at government hospitals and clinics. These healthcare privileges are extended to the cardholders’ spouse and children aged below 21 (who are unmarried).
Children of pension cardholders who are pursuing their higher studies can enjoy these healthcare privileges until the completion of their first-degree programme, as long as they remain unmarried. As for children of pensioners with permanent mental or physical disabilities and who are unable to fend for themselves, there is no age limit imposed on their eligibility for government healthcare assistance privileges.
Other than healthcare benefits, this pension card can be used as a discount card to purchase train tickets under KTMB.
The pension card has been included in the government’s the 1Malaysia Discount Card (1MDC) programme which gives additional benefits to cardholders. Pensioners can now enjoy cheaper essential goods and services at participating outlets who have joined the programme.
The 1Malaysia Discount Card (1MDC)
The 1Malaysia Discount Card (1MDC) is a smart-partnership programme initiated by the government to involve the private sector in providing cheaper goods and services to targeted low income and vulnerable groups of Malaysians. The 1MDC programme is not a new card system but a programme to consolidate several existing cards issued to specific target groups with add-on privileges.
The main feature of the 1MDC programme is the network of participating merchants that offer discounts to cardholders for some goods and services at their outlets.
It was reported that as of June 2015, there were a total 3.5 million cardholders throughout Malaysia under the 1MDC and a total of 2,316 participating businesses.
Currently, there are six types of cards under the 1MDC programme for specific target groups and they are:-
KADS1M for students
1Malaysia Privilege Card (1MPC) for Police Force and Angkatan Tentera personnel by MOF
Ex-Serviceman's Card (KBT) for veterans Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA)
Government Pensioner's Card for retired civil servants by Public Services Department (PSD)
Disabled Person's Card (Kad OKU) for People with Disabilities by Social Welfare Department (JKM)
Consumer Squad Card for KPDNKK volunteers
