Will i-Lestari Be Enough?

The i-Lestari scheme lets EPF contributors withdraw RM500 per month for the next 12 months to help people deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. However there are concerns that this solution might be creating a future problem where funds meant for retirement are used up. We talk to Dr. Madeline for her thoughts.
