Jelajah Komuniti PIDM is a community engagement programme aimed to raise the public’s awareness about PIDM and our role as a financial consumer protection body. Between 4 October and 7 November 2018, a roving truck will travel across the northern states of Kedah, Penang and Perak to bring PIDM to various locations. With the theme of saving money, the programme also seeks to educate participants on financial and debt management. PIDM will specifically reach out to targeted communities such as FELDA settlers, civil service employees from uniform bodies (e.g. firefighters, police and members of the armed forces) and others.
The community engagement programme is held in partnership with the Fire and Rescue Department of Malaysia (Bomba) and in collaboration with the Credit Counselling and Debt Management Agency (AKPK) and Ombudsmen for Financial Services (OFS).
PIDM protects your deposits in the bank as well as your takaful and insurance benefits in the unlikely event of a failure of a member bank or a takaful operator / insurance company.
