Interim Disability Assistance Programme For The Elderly (IDAPE)

IDAPE is a government assistance scheme providing financial help to needy and disabled elderly Singaporeans, who were not eligible to join ElderShield because of their age or pre-existing disabilities. IDAPE is administered by NTUC Income. Should you qualify, IDAPE will provide you $100 or $150 a month, for a maximum period of 72 months.

There is no need to pay any premiums as the Government bears the cost of running IDAPE. The cash payout amounting to $100 or $150 per month (for up to 72 months) is dependent on the IDAPE claimant’s per capita monthly household income.
