Understanding CareShield Life
To help you prepare better for your future long-term care needs, the government launched CareShield Life - a new national long-term care insurance scheme - on 1 October 2020.

Higher monthly payouts for a lifetime
On top of your CareShield Life payouts, choose to receive additional S$200 to S$5,000 per month when you're unable to perform at least 2 out of 6 ADL2.
