BENEFITS OF HAJJ FUNDS UP TO IDR 6 TRILLION IN 2018Humas BPKH
Jakarta – The Hajj Financial Management Agency (BPKH) recorded the total value of benefits or returns from investing in the 2018 Hajj funds of IDR 6 trillion. This number increased 28% compared to 2017 which amounted to IDR 4.7 trillion.
The value of the benefits will be allocated for the implementation of the Hajj pilgrimage, yields for pilgrims, and BPKH operational costs. For returns, BPKH has distributed a benefit value of Rp.500 billion to prospective waiting pilgrims starting February 2019. The value of benefits has been distributed to around 4.1 million prospective waiting pilgrims. The distribution of the value of benefits of Rp.500 billion is the first of two stages of sharing the value of benefits. The amount of the second stage benefit value distribution is determined after the BPK audit has been completed. Then what is a virtual account? Here we show the infographic:
The distribution of benefit values is in accordance with the mandate of Law Number 34 of 2014 Article 22, namely that BPKH is in charge of managing Hajj Finance which includes revenue, development, expenditure and accountability of Hajj Finance. In carrying out these tasks, BPKH carries out several functions, one of which is the implementation, acceptance, development and expenditure of Hajj Finance. To carry out these duties and functions, based on Article 26 letter (c), BPKH is required to provide information to Hajj pilgrims regarding the value of BPIH and / or Special BPIH benefits through the virtual account of each Hajj Pilgrim.
Furthermore, in Article 26 letter (f), BPKH is required to pay the benefit value of BPIH and / or Special BPIH deposits periodically to the account of each Hajj Pilgrim. Payment of the benefit value of the BPIH and / or Special BPIH deposits is made through the Jemaah Haji virtual account at BPS BPIH with the amount based on the percentage of the current year’s Hajj Financial benefit value, as regulated in Article 37 paragraph (1) and (2) Government Regulation Number 5 Year 2018.
Prospective pilgrims who have paid an initial deposit of IDR 25 million can see the value of the benefits they get through the BPKH website at va.bpkh.go.id, as shown in the following picture:
