Returning to SG after 8 years

Postby AriGold » Sun, 28 Aug 2011 9:10 am

Hi All, left SG 8 years ago after a 4 year posting. Looking at taking another job and had a few questions.

1. If i return do i get a new FIN or will the old FIN number be pulled out again?

2. i was previously (in 2003) earning $120K US - just based on inflation what would that be roughly equivalent to now?

3. previously lived on club st, at emerald gardens. used to pay $2500 per month for a 2 bedroom apartment - what would that be now?

thanks

You will receive your old FIN. It never changes unless you take up citizenship. The rest? A search of this board will turn up numerous discussions regarding your various topics. Use the search function at the upper right side of this page located just below the "Profile" link. - moderator

I can answer you #1 question.

Your previous FIN will be reactivated.

for 3: with the re-rediscovery of the shop houses .. in Club street and all, and the clean up of TP, 2,500 ?? No way jose ... :D

It is fashionable to live in that area now .. and it is a tough thing to find any apartment at that rate ..
