Can minors who hold dual citizenship apply for suspension of premium collection?
Minors aged below 21 who hold dual citizenship may apply for suspension of MediShield Life premium collection, subject to the eligibility criteria. Minor dual citizens (DCs) must possess a valid permanent residency permit in their country of residence, or other foreign residency documents permitting them to reside in their country of residence permanently with no end date.
This is considering that Singapore citizens who have acquired a citizenship of a foreign country can only renounce their Singapore citizenship after they turn 21 years old. If the application is approved, minor DCs will be granted suspension of MediShield Life premiums starting from the next policy year at point of application until the age of 20 years (inclusive).
