The late Afendy’s daughter receives RM82,000 from Takaful Scheme  

UUM ONLINE: The daughter of the late Administrative Officer at the Registrar’s Department, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Nur Fathiah Atiqah Afendy, 20, received a replica of the MKSK UUM-Takaful Ikhlas Takaful Scheme cheque amounting to RM82,000.
The cheque was delivered by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Haim Hilman Abdullah, witnessed by the Vice President Corporate Solution Department Takaful Ikhlas, Suhaimi Ismail and Registrar, Ahmad Rasidi Abdullah.
Haim Hilman, in his speech, hoped that the money received would help the deceased’s family to continue their lives. 
He said the MKSK Group Takaful Scheme was first introduced at UUM in 2018 and was approved by the 250th University Management Committee Meeting No. 10/2018 to promote this scheme to university staff.
“MKSK is only the patron and holder of the master policy and is not involved in matters related to staff claims, participation certificates, income tax returns, and other documents,” he said.
This scheme is to protect the welfare to staff, family members, and heirs by providing protection to heirs if contributors are struck by illness, misfortune, and death. 
This MKSK Takaful Scheme Master Policy has been activated since 1 June 2019 with the initial participation of staff and family members amounting to 630 people and now increased to 1,092 people.
While the total amount of benefit claims received by staff from 2020 until now amounts to RM96,920.
Therefore, he suggested that those who have not yet signed up can get explanation and information about this scheme later.
Meanwhile, Suhaimi, in his opening speech, said that a total of 1,092 people have contributed to this scheme, including 526 officers, 303 spouses and 263 contributions for children. 
“This contribution allows them to receive a death benefit, death charity, and hospital allowance,” he said.
