Things about monthly household income you must know about

As an initiative by the Government to help the middle-income demographic, PR1MA takes your monthly household income very seriously. For the purpose of application, your monthly household income encompasses all of the following:

Wages, salary, remuneration, leave pay, fee, commission, bonus, gratuity, prerequisite or allowance (whether such items are paid in money or otherwise) you get from your employment or business.

Your monthly income is derived from the last three calendar months prior to your application. Say you put in an application in April, your incomes from March, February and January would be added up and divided by three for the purpose of calculation.

If your average falls out of the range of RM2,500 – R M7,500, you are considered an unqualified applicant.
