4 Smart Ways to Manage Your Child's Duit Raya

1 - Set the money aside

First off, separate the duit raya from other pocket money, etc. This makes it easy to track.

2 - Save it in the bank / special investment funds

Invest the money in a special investment fund. There are plenty of options out there such as Tabung Haji. Last year, Tabung Haji offered a dividend of 3.1%.  

Plus, it doesn't take a lot of money to open a Tabung Haji account. Just bring along your myKad and your child's myKid and birth certificate.

3 - ASB Account

Everyone knows about the benefits of having a savings account with Amanah Saham Bumiputera (ASB). 

What are you waiting for? Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) has introduced a new unit trust scheme for children aged 6 months and above. This is great for saving all the duit raya.

Just bring along the registration form, myKad, myKid and birth certificate to get started.  

4 - SSPN-i Account

Simpanan Pendidikan Nasional (SSPN-i)(Education Savings Scheme) is a partnership with Takaful. 

On a side note, if you do intend to get a loan from PTPTN (National Higher Education Fund Corporation) for your child's higher education, you will need to have this account anyways. Might as well get it done now online.

SSPN-i depositors will receive health benefits and net savings of up to RM6,000 per year. What more are you waiting for?

With the current economic climate, it's best to save up and invest for the long run. 

Happy investing parents!
