:s8:To get AHG grant 40k ur salary must be 1.5k or less and last time I though every 1st timer will get it but not:)


Where you get this info orphans cannot apply AHG:s8:

http://www.hdb.gov.sg/fi10/fi10321p.nsf/w/BuyingNewFlatAdditionalCPFHousingGrant#AHGLeaflet

I fulfill all criteria. Singaporean, formed a family nucleus, first timer, income less than $5k, continuously employed for 12 mths. But I was not granted AHG despite appealing for 5 times already. Reasons being, I'm single, I'm not applying bto with my parents, my parents have already passed on, how to apply with them?

:DI do think you need go through MP to reccomendation letter...the purpose of this AHG is base on income ceiling not you are orphan... if orphan can't apply AHG why they can supply new bto with sibling...:)

After approved AHG can apply special CPF housing grant(SHG)...

I appeal 5 times already, through my MP, hdb minister and even PM. the reasons they gave for my rejection are ridiculous.

It is a 2 room rental flat so it is not under my name. The rental is based on income and contract is renewed every 2 years. It is not wise to stay in a rental flat forever, sooner or later I have to move on, what if my contract is not renewed by hdb, where am I gonna to stay? My sibling and I are mid 20s already and are still sharing a bedroom (Opposite gender). Hdb should recognise and provide proper aid for those who really need it. My parents have passed and my sibling and I are trying to move on and learn to be independent.

If you are in the same situation as me, what will you do?
