Your EPF contribution for that 22 days has already been done over the past 12 months. Therefore, no.

Hi Mr. Siew,

CK and Hazel, the KWSP website seems to say "yes". Better check out the KWSP website for definition of "wages" or give a call to EPF and talk to one of the duty officers to confirm it.
