Yap congrats GPS Government for Kenyalang Gold Card initiative

SUPP Public Complaints Bureau (SUPP PCB) Chief & Kota Sentosa Branch Chairman, Wilfred Yap supports and congratulates the Sarawak GPS Government on the Kenyalang Gold Card (KGC) initiative. Since the launching of KGC, SUPP PCB and Kota Sentosa Branch have assisted more than 500 elderly Sarawakians aged 60 and above to apply for the KGC.

He said there are still more that 50% of the 334,500 elderly Sarawakians above 60 who have not applied for the Kenyalang Gold Card.  SUPP PCB and Kota Sentosa Branch would like to encourage all senior Sarawakians  aged 60 and above who have not applied for the KGC to do so immediately as the KGC provides privileges and benefits, such as special discounts on services and rebates from KGC’s 56 strategic vendors in optical service, health service, reflexology, bus transportation, food outlets, pharmacy, retail, tailoring and hair salon. KGC also offers compassionate assistance of RM3,000.00 to cover funeral expenses on the death of cardholders, not covered by other parties.

“Yap also hopes that the Sarawak GPS Government under  the able leadership of Chief Minister YAB Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari  will take the lead as the first in Malaysia to consider paying a modest and fixed RM200.00 monthly payment to all Kenyalang Gold Card holders by using a portion of the 5% Sales Tax collected on Petroleum products from PETRONAS.

Application forms can be obtained from welfare departments, resident office, district and sub-district office statewide and the public can also apply online for the Kenyalang Gold Card at kwkpk.sarawak.gov.my and to those who don’t understand the procedures and documents involved in the application process for the Kenyalang Gold Card, SUPP PCB and Kota Sentosa Branch is always ready to give advice and lend a helping hand.  Any Sarawakian with “K” status who has attains the age of 60 and who requires assistance can always call SUPP PCB’s mobile number at 016-7797688 or go direct to SUPP Head Office to request for assistance, ” he said.
