I don't remember receiving any letter w the goodies you mentioned. Must be SG50 treats. Usually money in on September. How come you received so early?

I have 1000 shares, plus some bonus shares which i got in 1991/2. Wish Fairprice can become public-listed, but it is just wishful thinking.lol

Just checked...$273.00 credited 16 June.
Have not received the annual Fairprice slip yet.
This is dividend only, or dividend plus rebates for purchases?

You are right, between my wife and myself, we had at one time like 10 Income policies (Growth, Umbrella ah la, Balanced funds)... but some have matured and had been cashed out.

Basically faithful Income customer.

Note when you no longer have any policies or all have matured, they will buy back your shares. Make sure you have at least one active policy or become a union member. It would be a waste if you are forced to let go your shares. My spouse has no more policy with them and they automatically bought back my spouse 2,262 shares by instalments.

Actually, I am not 100% sure of my holdings. Btw, is this shown somewhere on the annual rebates/dividend slips? I remember policy holders were only allowed to buy 1000 shares those days. Somewhere along the line, I think my shares increased to 1000 plus. Could be some bonus shares given.

How did you end up having 2000 plus shares?

My dividend should be less than yours. I can explain this, you see....My wife makes Fairprice purchases (with her money), but the rebates goes into my bank ac and becomes my money.

When I bought a policy years ago, I subscribed for 1,000 NTUC Fairprice shares at $1 each. That time limit was 30,000 shares. Two months later, I wanted to subscribe for another 4,000 shares but was rejected as they changed the rule to limit subscription of shares to 20

With bonus shares along the way, my 1,000 shares become 2,262 With bonus shares, the dividend yield on my cost is 16.965%.

They have stopped giving bonus shares for a very long long time and I doubt they will be giving anymore

Some years back, I heard got people complain not fair, so stop giving bonus shares liao, cannot remember is it for Fairprice or NTUC Income shares, or maybe both.

Actually it is only a matter of time. I called them up before. The shares are also not transferable. So the clock keeps ticking. In the future all will have only 20 shares each.
