How do I know
if I qualify for CHAS?
If you are a Singapore Citizen of any age, you may benefit from CHAS if your household monthly income, per person, is SGD1,800 or below. Members of a family, whether by blood, marriage or legal adoption whose NRICs show that they live at a single residence, will have to apply for CHAS using a single application form. The household monthly income per person includes the income of every family member.
If you belong to a household with no income, and your NRIC reflects the Annual Value or AV of your residence as belong SGD21,000 or below, you also qualify for CHAS. If you are already on the Public Assistance or PA scheme, you automatically qualify for CHAS, as well.
You may apply for your CHAS membership here.
Who are the Pioneer Generation and what are their
special CHAS benefits?
