Senior Worker Early Adopter Grant and Part-Time Re-Employment Grant

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][minti_image img=”17362″][vc_column_text]As Singapore faces a rapidly ageing workforce, senior employees form an integral asset of our economy. They are an important wealth of human resource and their contributions to the workforce should be valued and sustained.

A bill was passed on 2 November 2021 stating that the Retirement and Re-Employment Age will be raised to 63 and 68 respectively on 1 July 2022. The government will be progressively raising these ages so as to retain the seniors in the workforce and maximise their contributions.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Besides that, to strengthen support for senior workers to remain in the workforce, the CPF contribution rates will also be raised to boost retirement adequacy.

Age Bands Before 1 Jan 2024 1 Jan 2024 Long Term Target
≤55 37%(No Change)
>55-60 29.5% 31% 37%
>60-65 20.5% 22% 26%
