What if I have developed mild/moderate disability– what help is available for my long term care costs?
The focus of ElderFund is to provide protection against severe disability during old age, when Singaporeans are most likely to need long-term care but were not able to join CareShield Life or ElderShield, and have low income and MediSave balances and inadequate personal savings to meet their long-term care needs.
There are various support schemes for families who need support for their loved ones who are younger than 30 years old and have developed severe disability, e.g. subsidies for early intervention programmes under Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), and subsidies for therapy services at KK Women's and Children's Hospital and the National University Hospital.
Government-funded safety nets such as MediFund and ComCare will provide assistance to Singaporeans who are unable to pay for their care even after Government subsidies and other means of support.
