[2022] Senior Citizen Discounts and Benefits in Singapore

Looking for the best senior citizen discounts and benefits in Singapore? From one-for-one attraction tickets to senior citizen dining discounts, here’s the ultimate list of senior citizen promotions in Singapore.

by Hannah Grey

While not everyone may be looking forward to getting older, there is one thing that can make it worthwhile: seniors discounts. As stated in the Senior Citizen Act of Singapore, anyone who is at least 60 years of age is considered a senior citizen and is eligible for these benefits. While the Act only considers those aged 60 years and above as seniors, certain establishments in the country grant discounts to individuals as young as 55 years old. 

Similar to military personnel and healthcare employees, senior discounts are commonly offered as a sign of respect to our elders. After having contributed to society in their own way during their early days, it simply serves as a small token of appreciation for their hard work. Here in Singapore, the elderly are certainly not exempted from these privileges. 

From telco companies, popular attractions, and grocery stores, here are the best discounts and benefits that can help senior citizens in Singapore stretch their dollar!

Transportation  

On top of a more senior-friendly transport system, elderly adults can enjoy discounted public transportation fares as well. Seniors aged 60 years old and above can avail of the Hybrid Concession Pass (HCP) at $64 for one month of unlimited travel on basic bus and train services. Compared to the $128 Adult Monthly Travel Pass (AMTP), seniors can enjoy 50% off on the same transportation privileges. 

This pass can be conveniently purchased at any TransitLink Ticket Office, TransitLink Kiosk, Add Value Machine, Assisted Service Kiosk, or General Ticketing Machine—all of which can be found at MRT stations or bus interchanges.
