SCs (Senior Citizens) here in Singapore are given much importance. Getting old and weak here in Singapore doesn’t mean they can be isolated and abandoned. If you belong to the group, you are entitled to many benefits and privileges. Don’t just sit there and wait for the mercy of other people because you can still enjoy the things you used to do. Here are some benefits or privileges you can enjoy:


Food and Entertainment

Food establishments are required to give SCs discount. If you are 55 years old, you can watch movies for S$4.


If you reach 60, you are entitled a SC concession pass. This pass will give you access to MRT and buses for only S$0.88 but it is subject to certain limits. You need to apply for this.

Monthly annuity

If you reach 62, you are entitled a monthly annuity or allowance. Your allowance will depend on your CPF scheme.
