Answer: The income criteria for ComCare schemes are not hard thresholds. Our Social Service Offices (SSOs) assess the applicants' circumstances and needs holistically, provide financial assistance and connect them to community support as needed.

Answer: ComCare Long-Term Assistance is for persons permanently unable to work and have little or no financial means or family support. Short-to-Medium-Term Assistance is typically granted for 3 to 6 months in the first instance, and renewed if the household continues to require support.

Answer: The applicant must be a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident (where at least one immediate family member of the same household is a Singapore Citizen).
