by Hannah Grey

While not everyone may be looking forward to getting older, there is one thing that can make it worthwhile: senior citizen discounts. Thankfully, there are a myriad of perks and deals you can tap on once you become eligible. Check out Homage’s guide to the best senior citizen discounts Singapore has to offer!

Who is eligible for senior citizen discounts in Singapore? 

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 extend their senior citizen 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 for 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 lower-priced telco prices, discounted tickets to popular attractions, and cheaper trips to the 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. Senior citizens are eligible to apply for a Senior Citizen Concession Card once they are 60 years old, which allows them to enjoy concessionary fares for bus and train services.

Seniors aged 60 years old and above can also make use of a monthly Hybrid Concession Pass (HCP), which costs $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 SimplyGo Ticketing Service Centre, ticket office, SimplyGo Kiosk, Assisted Service Kiosk, or via the SimplyGo Portal and SimplyGo app. Simply head to any of the MRT stations or bus interchanges to apply for your card!
