  1. HI, can i check with you if the OCBC is your account in Malaysia or Singapore? Do they have the option to allow me to transfer to another person in Malaysia?

    1. Sorry for late reply. I’m using Malaysia OCBC account. As far as I know, you cant transfer to another person in Malaysia as it will base on your passport number.
      There are 3 mode of payment in the form. 1/ direct banking, 2. Banker’s Cheque and 3.Foreign Demand Draft. If you dont have malaysia accpunt you might opt for option 3 in section C of Form KWSP 9K (AHL)

  2. Hi, you are so lucky just done everything before the movement control order. I am stuck at this part and i have yet to receive email from Malaysia High Comm for collection of Form K. Is it a must to go to KWSP counter personally for the withdrawal process as of now are restricted to go back Malaysia. Is it possible to do it online? Thanks.
