Abstract

At present, social protection system is a requirement for those involved in all sectors of employment such as pensions to Government employees and Employees Provident Fund (EPF) to private sector workers. The primary basis of the system is to provide protection to address poverty, financial assistance and future guarantees. However, no structured social protection system was introduced to the informal sectors workers in Malaysia such as farmers and others. The purpose of this study is to examine the level of knowledge and acceptance of social protection systems among farmers in the Muda Agricultural Development Authority (MADA). This study involved 573 respondents covering 4 regions within the MADA area. In conclusion, this study will examine the level of knowledge and acceptance of farmers on social protection systems in their communities.
