Is it true that occupier of hdb flat automatically becomes beneficiary when both parents passed away? How abt the siblings who had moved out? Are they entitled to any share?

Not sure if this will answer your question...

The flat will share among me and my half brother even though the flat initially belongs to both of my parents?
First of all, HDB inheritance can be decided through a Will. If your mum writes she wants to give 80% to you and 20% to your brother, that's what will happen. The question you have is about if there is no Will. In that case if both of you are her legal children, you'll both get 50% (she is the 100% owner and only that matters).

After that you and your brother will be in a "Tenancy-in-Common" ownership even though your mum was in "Joint Tenancy". You can read this to see how HDB inheritance works.
