Basics and Benefits of SOCSO If you’ve been paying attention, has been explaining the basics of SOCSO as well as some of the benefits you might receive. As we have previously mentioned, there are different benefits depending on the type of scheme you are subscribed to. Today we cover more of what you will find under the Employment Injury Insurance Scheme. 
Employment Injury Insurance Scheme – Benefits

Temporary Disablement

This benefit is paid to employees who have been certified by a doctor to be unfit for work for not less than (4) days including the day of the accident. This benefit is paid for the duration of the period the employee is on medical leave. However, no benefit will be paid for the days for which the employee works and earns wages during this period. The benefit rate will be 80% of the daily wage of the employee (as per previous SOCSO contribution rate), from a minimum of RM10.00 to a maximum of RM78.67 per day.
