Will the Silver Support Scheme cover seniors living in residential facilities (e.g. Nursing Homes/ Welfare Homes/ Home for the Aged and Adult Disability Home)?
Seniors aged 65 and above, including those living in residential facilities that provide long-term care, will be assessed for the Silver Support (SS) Scheme. Seniors whose NRIC address reflects one of these facilities will receive SS if they meet all the other eligibility criteria. Seniors whose NRIC address does not reflect one of these facilities will receive SS based on the housing type of their NRIC address, if they meet all the other eligibility criteria.
