PR - REP

Post by Kimtedple » Wed, 18 Dec 2019 9:39 am

Hi may be some of you can share ....

I have been Singapore PR for more then 20years and has been living in Singapore.

My Pr was due to renew and so I did. But was surprised that I was only given 1 year REP.

1) I find in not normal because I don’t recall I ever get only 1 year REP ..... is it normal ?

2) was it because I am not working right now and they only gave 1 year to me?

3)is this a signal of not given me REP next renewal ?

Hope to get some answer here, please share you view.

YES

What is your age? Since when are you not working and since when there is no CPF contribution?

Was your PR through the PTS Scheme?

Are you permanently residing in SG?

Item marked above in bold is the reason why they gave you a 1 year REP. Since they gave you PR under the PTS Scheme, they would need you to work continuosly in Singapore and contribute back to country and also pay your CPF.
