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

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.

In accordance to statutory requirements, the Retirement Age is currently at 62 while the Re-Employment Age is at 67. The government will be progressively raising these ages so as to retain the seniors in the workforce and maximise their contributions.

The table below shows the progressive raise of Retirement and Re-Employment Ages.

(a) Senior Worker Early Adopter Grant

What is it?

This grant aims to incentivise and encourage companies to raise their own internal Retirement and Re-Employment Age, ahead of the legislative schedule.

How much funding?

The funding quantum will depend on the following:

    1. number of senior workers aged 60 & above
    2. extent of increase of Retirement and Re-Employment Age within company

(b) Part-Time Re-Employment Grant

What is it?

This grant aims to support employers who are able to commit to providing part-time employment opportunities to eligible senior workers upon their request.

How much funding?

The funding quantum will be solely dependent on the number of senior workers aged 60 & above, multiplied by $2,500 per worker.

All companies that are legally registered or incorporated in Singapore, and employing senior workers aged 60 & above, are eligible to apply for the grants. Companies are able to submit applications for both grants at the same time.
