Effects on quitting job after getting PR

Postby Yerin » Sun, 02 Dec 2018 1:15 am

Hi I just got my PR recently but unluckily due to some vocational disease, I think I am not able to continue with my current job.

My concern is, will this affect my future if I quit immediately? I only have a few dollars in my CPF account now. Does this leave a bad impact on my future citizenship application or job hunting?

My current plan is to go unemployed for a few months and try to get healthy before going back to work.

Thanks for any advice in advance.

No, you can be unemployed as long as you can afford but at some point when your REP comes up for renewal you will have issues getting a renewal. Also taking a very low paying job will not help for REP renewal.

I would think the benefits of staying employed with sick leave would at least help out - even "unpaid" leave for a while whilst staying employed would look much better on both future job applications and on REP.
