Using KPS for the BLSM Programme

  • Unconditional cash transfers (BLSM) were distributed gradually across Indonesia, following the announcement of a fuel price hike. BLSM recipients were required to bring their KPS card and supporting documents (e.g. identity card) to their nearest post office in order to receive their cash assistance.
  • BLSM funds can be collected by other family members who bring the KPS, an authorisation letter and addition supporting documents (e.g. family card, identity card or domicile card) in order to prove that they are from the same household.
  • For remote areas and those without access to a post office, PT. Pos Indonesia will visit the region and open special payment counters. Payments can be made until the beginning of December 2013, depending on the post office and local government.Using KPS to access the BLSM programme

About the BLSM Programme

Through BLSM, the government provides assistance to poor and vulnerable households as a buffer against the effects of rising fuel prices (BBM). BLSM funds were available to 15.5 million household in the lowest socio-economic bracket, based on the results of the 2011 PPLS and the integrated database (BDT). BLSM aims to help maintain the purchasing power of such households so that they can meet their basic needs.

Socialisation Handbook

To assist in the socialisation of the KPS and compensation programmes, which were launched by the government as part of the 2013 fuel subsidy adjustment policy, the fuel subsidy adjustment team created a socialisation handbook.

Called the “Handbook on the Socialisation and Implementation of the 2013 Fuel Subsidy Adjustment Compensation Policy", it is intended as a handbook for all parties, including central and regional governments, for them to socialise the compensation programmes to the public.
