Getting PR when already pregnant

Post by hogsee » Mon, 10 Mar 2008 6:36 pm

Does anyone have any experience of the benefits of PR when pregnant for a working mum (CPF help with hospital costs, longer maternity leave) ? I am expecting, and my husband and I both hold EPs.

(and sorry for posting cross thread, I dont know what the natural home for this is)

Eligibility of Extended Maternity Leave for a foreigner or PR working in Singapore

Any female employee covered under the Employment Act has the right to take leave of absence from work for 12 weeks when she delivers a baby, regardless of her (or the baby's) nationality or the baby's birth order. The maternity leave is paid by the employer only for the first 8 weeks of each leave period taken for the first 2 confinements. The employee will only be eligible for the government-paid maternity leave under the Children Development Co-Savings Act if she satisfies the following conditions:

a) the child is a Singapore citizen at birth; and
b) legitimate; and
c) 1st to 4th child in birth order; and
d) the female employee has worked for the employer for at lease
180 days before the birth of the child

Otherwise, the extended maternity leave will be unpaid.

Hello Viajera,

I am also looking for similar benefits. My wife is pregnant & am looking for CPF medical advantages for that.
Please let me know if you find anything relevant, & I'll keep you posted too.
