Do Spass holders need to inform employers on their marriage?

As above, me and my fiance getting married in Mid Sept, we have already gotten LLE and she is Spass, Does she need to notify her employer? If possible we would like to keep it on the down low from the employer

You legal status should always be updated. In particular, IRAS (Inland Revenue). As IRAS needs to be updated, that means the employer must also be updated for the filing of the Annual IR-8As for the earnings for the year. So don't play-play. You will get burned for sure.

HR normally needs the name and contact info of your next of kin for emergency purposes. A lot of company benefits like health insurance also include immediate family members, so their details need to be entered in the system.

Hi all, thanks for your reply and sorry couldn't respond earlier as was busy with wedding preps.

I know that she would need to inform MOM on the changes in marital status, but that can be done online by herself via eponline and she would not need to inform her employer unless MOM informs her employers once they record the changes?

Also we will apply LTVP straight after marriage with our LLE, as there will also be a need to fill her employment details and marriage cert during the LTVP application, will ICA inform MOM on the changes or does she still need to inform MOM separately by herself?
