Income support for SC/PR who have lost their job is available

Please see here. Note that there is no discrimination between SC and SPR.

https://www.gov.sg/article/financial-su ... y-covid-19

The COVID-19 Support Grant provides a monthly cash grant of up to $800 for 3 months, which is credited to your bank account. The cash support quantum will be based on the last-drawn monthly salary, capped at $800. You will also receive job and training support by WSG or e2i.

For those who have experienced income loss of at least 30% for a period of at least three consecutive months:

The COVID-19 Support Grant provides a monthly cash grant of up to $500 for 3 months, which is credited to your bank account. The cash support quantum will be based on the last-drawn monthly salary, capped at $500.

These requirements may be a problem for some:
• Prior gross monthly household income of ≤$10,000, or monthly per capita income of ≤$3,100
• Live in a property with annual value of ≤$21,000

For example, a low income person staying in an extended family home when the annual value is more than $21k or the per capita income is more than $3.1k.

Financial support should not be based on annual value of the address and should be based on this individual's reported income.

My 2 cents.

Agreed. What's interesting is that it's the HDB dwellers who are already suckling the teat of gahmen subsidies complaining that private prop owners and PR should not be helped without examining the log in their own eye first.
