BPJS Ketenagakerjaan (BPJAMSOSTEK) again submitted data on candidates for the second phase of salary/wage subsidy (BSU) to the Ministry of Manpower yesterday. The amount submitted is 1.25 million data.
The President Director of BPJAMSOSTEK Anggoro Eko Cahyo said the total data submitted so far is 2.25 million, from the salary subsidy target of 8.7 million more workers.
“The submission of BSU data is carried out in stages to ensure that the distribution of assistance is right on target while minimizing the occurrence of BSU distribution errors,” he said in a written statement quoted by detik.com, Tuesday (17/8/2021).
Anggoro explained that in the first phase there were 947,669 workers who received salary subsidy assistance of Rp. 1 million, of which 1,000,200 data were submitted. The remaining 42,153 workers were declared not to have passed the verification because they were listed as recipients of other social assistance, and another 10,378 were declared to have failed to transfer due to the worker’s account being dormant or invalid.
“Especially for those who fail to transfer, a collective account will be opened,” he explained.
As is known, the salary subsidy assistance of Rp. 1 million was channeled through Himbara Bank (Bank BNI, Bank Mandiri, Bank BRI, and Bank BTN). Prospective recipients who do not have the above account will be opened collectively.
Employers (companies) and workers are expected to immediately submit the completeness of the data required in the process of opening the collective account. The complete data is submitted by the company’s HRD through the Corporate Data Reporting menu on the official BPJAMSOSTEK website (www.bpjsketenagakerjaan.go.id) or in coordination with the local BPJAMSOSTEK Branch Office.
“By becoming a BPJAMSOSTEK participant, workers are protected from work risks, and also get added value such as BSU. Ensure orderly participation through the BPJSTKU application and check in their respective HRD,” said Anggoro.
