    Or else
    EPF at retirement and pension everymonth after retirement.?

    Yes, they have found a way to steal the private sector employees' retirement benefits!

    We already have not 1 but 2 useless pension schemes. Why don't they just be honest and say they need more money to pay the salaries of the jumbo 90 man ministerial cacophony.

    So that's the end of the poor private sector workers' EPF and ETF monies. Daylight robbery !
