Will I automatically qualify for ElderFund if I am a recipient of moderate disability assistance schemes such as Pioneer Generation Disability Assistance Scheme or Home Caregiving Grant?
For Pioneer Generation Disability Assistance Scheme (PioneerDAS) and Home Caregiving Grant (HCG), which are moderate disability schemes, individuals can be eligible as long as they require some assistance with 3 or more Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).
For ElderFund, which is a severe disability scheme, individuals need to be unable to perform three or more ADLs (i.e. require significant assistance) in order to be eligible.
As the ElderFund eligibility criteria is stricter, patients who are eligible for ElderFund can automatically receive PioneerDAS or HCG payouts without going for a separate assessment (subject to meeting the other non-disability eligibility criteria for these schemes), but not the converse.
