i believe financial status is 1 of the factor in their consideration, they will required you to update your latest financial status if they considering to approve you.

If you are going to job hopping, is still ok, get a job immediately to lower the risk of rejection.

Do the ICA ask for latest payslip before the approval?

Dear xdks312,

The interview not means that they ask you question by question. the session is to asses your documents, to check on some queries. question case to case basis.

the status will remain "Pending" till you complete the SGJourney and when you receive your official approval letter.

On PR no. No idea on SC, but you need to get PR first and the car is likely to be paid off by the time you get SC, but I doubt it would affect that either.
