Opt in to the Save with Grab Programme
[UPDATE: Program Save with Grab has been discontinued until further notice]
As part of our Better365 initiative, we are partnering with the Employee’s Provident Fund (EPF) to help our driver-partners save for retirement!
Effective 16 August 2018, we’re introducing the Save with Grab Programme, exclusively for Gold and Platinum self-employed driver-partners who want to contribute to EPF via i-Saraan.
What is i-Saraan?
Save with Grab Programme entitles driver-partners to receive an additional 5% contribution from Grab by actively maintaining a Gold or Platinum status on GrabAllStars!
How does this work?
Cycle 1: July 2018 – December 2018
Cycle 2: January 2019 – June 2019
- Grab 5% contribution is subject to driver-partners’ Gold/ Platinum GrabAllStar status for the period of 4 out of 6 months.
- Grab 5% contribution will be topped up in January & July while Government 15% contribution will be topped up in March & September.
- 15% Government and 5% Grab contribution are only applicable to drivers below aged 55 years old.
- Top-up is done at the end of every 6-month period per cycle. (January – June & July – December).
- Recommended contribution to achieve RM330 after 2 cycles is RM1,680.

I have not registered for i-Saraan, what will I need to do ?
You may visit any EPF offices nationwide to register. After you have registered, you may start contributing voluntarily into your EPF account via i-Saraan.
How long is one cycle?
One cycle will last for 6 months (January – June & July – December). However, as this will be the first cycle, it will start from August – December 2018 and driver-partners will have to maintain Gold or Platinum GrabAllStars status for 4 out of 5 months instead.
When is the latest date to opt-in to the programme?
Driver-partners need to opt-in before 30th September 2018.
When will the full sum of RM330* contribution be topped up into my EPF account?
The RM330 contribution will be topped up into your EPF account within 3 months after end of Cycle 1 and Cycle 2.
I have been contributing to EPF-i-Saraan. Am I still entitled to the 5% contribution from Grab?
Driver-Partners will still need to achieve Gold/Platinum status on GrabAllStars to be eligible for the 5% contribution from Grab. You will also need to provide your valid EPF number on GrabAllStars.com.
Can I still register for i-Saraan if I have a monthly contribution from my employer?
i-Saraan is a programme for all Malaysians as long as they fit the criteria. Driver-partners can still contribute to i-Saraan voluntarily but will not receive government 15% contribution or 5% contribution from Grab.
Is there an age limit for this programme?
The Save with Grab Programme is open to all self-employed driver-partners that are under the age of 55.
