Should I get a PEP?

Post by Wanabe » Sat, 24 Aug 2019 3:50 pm

Hi all just found out there is a PEP available. I guess the advantage compare to EP is its 3 years and not tied to employer meaning easier to look for job.

My question is ..is it worth to apply if I m on EP and qualified and how long it takes to apply? Thanks

The big question is 'is your current employment in danger?' if it's not what do you want a PEP? If it is, then yes, it might be a good idea. But, if you give up your renewable EP for a non-renewable PEP that is only valid for 3 years and is only a one-time affair you could be sailing into the perfect storm. You buys yer ticket and takes yer chances.

No
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

Yes In progress..just past 6 months pending.

I guess its no because its only a 1 time PEP granted. I was hearing news from some friends that were asked to leave in short notice after the employer terminated their employment so was wondering if this can be option

PEP has a very narrow band for being useful.
