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!

Your Guide to the Best Senior Citizen Discounts and Benefits 

Best Transportation Discounts for Senior Citizens 

On top of a more senior-friendly transport system, elderly adults can enjoy discounted public transportation fares as well.
