Eldercare Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) Helper Salary
We will provide consultation and advice on the eligibility and application of the various Government Grants:
(1) Foreign Domestic Worker Grant
The FDW Grant by Agency of Integrated Care (AIC) is a monthly grant of $120 to support families who need to hire a foreign domestic worker to care for the frail elderly and persons with at least moderate disability and who meet certain Criteria (please refer to the AIC website or Singapore Silver pages at http://www.silverpages.sg/dfwg for more details).
(2) Foreign Domestic Worker Levy Concession
The scheme enables families who employ full-time FDWs to look after their loved ones with disabilities to pay a lower monthly concessionary FDW levy of $60 (instead of $265) (please refer to the AIC website or Singapore Silver pages http://www.silverpages.sg).
(3) Pioneer Generation Disability Assistance Scheme
The Pioneer Generation Disability Assistance Scheme (PioneerDAS) is part of the Pioneer Generation Package, which honours what Singapore's Pioneers have done for the country. Under this scheme, Pioneers who have disabilities can receive $100 a month, which they can use for expenses.
ElderShield is an affordable severe disability insurance scheme which provides basic financial protection to those who need long-term care, especially during old age. It provides a monthly cash payout to help pay the out-of-pocket expenses for the care of a severely-disabled person for a certain duration. For ElderShield purposes, “severely disabled” means unable to do at least 3 of these 6 activities of daily living – washing, dressing, feeding, toileting, mobility, and transferring.
There are currently 2 ElderShield schemes: ElderShield300 and ElderShield400. ElderShield300 was first launched in September 2002 and offers a payout of $300 per month for a maximum of 60 months. ElderShield400 came about after the ElderShield reform in 2007 and offers an improved coverage with payout of $400 per month for a maximum of 72 months. Singapore Citizens and PRs who join ElderShield after September 2007 will be on the ElderShield400 scheme (please refer to the MOH website for more details).
