How did you obtain your PR? PTS or family scheme? I reckon it’s PTS since you’re concerned about your income.

Like what SF pointed out, ICA will anyway know your employment status and income level through other agencies such as IRAS and CPF board. That’s why ICA can grant renewal instantaneously for a BAU case.

If you insist on waiting for a year post expiry then it’s a risk you need to take. No one here can tell for certain if ICA will renew your PR, or make the decision for you. You will need to be prepared to explain to ICA in person, provide more supporting documents and why you deliberately not renew it. But it seems like you have pretty made up your mind then go ahead and wait till end of next year. There is no need to come here to seek the reassurance that no one is able to provide you with.
im considering my options. also i obtained through family when i was 15. im 30 now
After 21, you are an independent PR and will not be treated as a Dependent PR. I think even the last renewal you were independent?

Your REP renewal application and SC application, if you decide to, will be assessed under PTS criteria. You can no longer rely on family ties even though you got it through family tie scheme originally.

As long as you are continuosly employed with no negative records, your REP will be OK

Criminal records? Can be as simple as a fine / penalty during Covid for not wearing a mask to shop lifting to involving in a brawl, insulting or obstructing a public servant from discharging his duties. Who knows?
