Why is the threshold for household monthly income per person set at $1,800 to be eligible for the Silver Support Scheme?

The Silver Support (SS) Scheme is meant for seniors who had low incomes during their working years and now have less in retirement.

The threshold of $1,800^ enables seniors who have little or no family support to benefit from SS. 

^Silver Support will be enhanced in 2025. For the updated Silver Support eligibility criteria and payments from 2025, please refer to our FAQs here
