Declaring annual salaryShow

As a PEP holder, you need to declare your current year's salary to us by 31 January of the following year.

Fixed annual salary = fixed monthly salary × number of months worked in the calendar year.

You worked with Company A from 1 January 2024 to 31 April 2024 , earning a fixed monthly salary of $22,500. You were unemployed for 2 months and started employment with Company B from 1 July 2024 to 31 December 2024 , earning a fixed monthly salary of $30,000 .

Your fixed annual salary earned is:

Salary from Company A for 4 months = $22,500 × 4 = $90,000
Salary from Company B for 6 months = $30,000 × 6 = $180,000
Fixed annual salary for 2024 = $90,000 + $180,000 = $270,000
