Hi ,

I Have been offered a job in Singapore with an MNC as a Product Manager. The salary offered is about S$ 85K. Out of this 30K is towards House & utilty charges.

Is this a decent salary package for a family of two..?

Appreciate some advice.

Total annual package: SGD 81 K

Basic monthly: 51K+75% Housing (only for the first year of contract) +Airpassage for my family+Settling in Allowance +Dental+Flexi benfits+Bonus=Total $81K

In Singapore, the Annual income

=12 months * Monthly income + AWS

Where AWS (Annual Wages Supplement)

=1 * Monthly Income * (no of months in service/12)

AWS is on pro-rated basis, & it's normally given at the end of the year, Dec.

if you join the company from Apr, then your AWS

=(12-3)/12 * Monthly income

=75% of Monthly income

Assuming you are joining on Jan2005

So 51k/13 ~3.9k/month

3.9k/month should be good enough for a Single person.

It greatly depend your & your families' lifestyle to judge whether it's enough.

I'm afraid you have to stay in HDB and take public transport.

Thanx for you reply.

I wil be getting S$ 54,000 in hand per year.

In addition to this the company will be reimbursing my house rent + maid (twice a week) + electricity + water + gas + cable tv + internet, Subject to a max total of S$ 31,000pa.

Full medical coverage for both my wife and I. One return trip home country once a year.

Does this sound ok by Singapore standards.

More than Enough.

If you live by Singaporean Standards.

If you are smart you can save atleast 40 thousand Dollars Perannum.

Since all your running expenses is taken care. You just have to manage food.

Man Awesome package.
