What is this programme about?
Purpose of the Programme
The SOCSO Social Synergy Programme (SSP) is a new initiative by the Pakatan Government to integrate and streamline the various assistance programmes available to help the B40 income group of Malaysians. It is an integrated social safety net programme which will provide a host of social benefits to assist Malaysians in times of need.
This programme aims to facilitate the channelling of assistance to the target group of Malaysians who are in financial distress.
Through the integration of the fragmented programmes under the purview of the various social agencies, the government hopes to improve the delivery system and also the effectiveness of the programmes.
The SPP will also prevent the overlapping in benefit distribution, and ensure that aid only goes to and reaches those who deserve it.
What are the benefits of the programme?
The SSP is an initiative pioneered and led by the Social Security Organisation (Socso), in collaboration with 16 agencies.
The programme's system which is built using blockchain technology registered and is protected under the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA), and has also obtained copyright notification from the Intellectual Property Management Corporation (MyiPO).
SOCSO, who pioneer this initiative, has built this system and will administer, supervise, manage and maintain the programme.
The MySynergy System is built based on five comprehensive modules which covers finance, education and training, protection benefit and wakalah, medication and health, as well as jobs and businesses.
The Collaboration with other agencies
SOCSO will share the data with the collaborating government agencies and allow them free access to the largest social security database in Malaysia.
During the programme's pilot phase which started in February 2019, a total of 1,167 prospects from various backgrounds had registered under the programme.
The list of entities and agencies are still expanding. Recently, Legal Aid and Welfare departments have indicated their interest to be part of the programme.
