Reader Samuel Cheah asked,
My birthday falls on 9 June 1954 – I supposed this is Singapore Senior Citizenship age to qualify for SC benefits. Could you kindly enlighten me as how I could apply for a discounted SMRT link card fare for SC.
According to transitlink website, Senior citizens aged 60 years and above who are Singaporean citizens or permanent residents are qualified for senior citizen concession cards. Application Forms for the Senior Citizen Concession card can be picked up at any TransitLink Ticket Offices or click here to download the application form.
Please remember to attach a photocopy of your NRIC (front and reverse) and a colour passport sized photograph to the application form.
Your Senior Citizen Concession card will be mailed to you together with further instructions for use. Find out more about fares for senior citizen here.
