The Singapore government has introduced various temporary relief measures designed to ease the financial strain on individuals and families, the self-employed and businesses to help them survive the dramatic financial consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. These measures – intended to help those most vulnerable to the economic uncertainties imposed by the pandemic – are being rolled out in response to a rapidly evolving situation and the pandemic’s broader long-term consequences on the social and economic future of Singapore.
NuLife has compiled a list of the various financial assistance schemes to help you keep track of all the measures that have been introduced so far and identify those that are most applicable to you. Please access the COVID-19 tab at nulife.com.sg to get an overview of the various assistance programmes on offer, the eligibility criteria for each programme and links to websites and forms to facilitate the application process for individuals, families, elderlies and corporate and non-corporate (Voluntary Welfare Organisations and Social Service Agencies) entities. Parents will also find resources to help them cope with the challenges of working from home and assisting children who are pursuing home-based learning.
We hope the information (collated as of June 4, 2020) is able to assist you in accessing the resources that you urgently need. Please contact the relevant authorities for further clarifications as required.
Encourage synergies to build communities through sharing: optimise each volunteer’s unique knowledge, talent and passion for change to make a direct and positive impact and further NuLife’s vision to value each individual and assist him in the most caring, professional manner possible and pay it forward.
