Citizen Top-Up

The Citizen Top-Up is a $10,000 housing subsidy that is given to eligible Singapore Citizen/Singapore Permanent Resident (SC/SPR) households when a qualifying household member becomes a Singapore Citizen.

It is available to any of the following SC/SPR households who have:

  • Paid a premium of $10,000 for the purchase of an HDB flat direct from HDB
  • Taken a CPF Housing Grant for Family which was $10,000 lesser than an SC/SC household for the purchase of a resale HDB flat or a Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) flat or an Executive Condominium (EC).

It is only distributed to:

  • The original SC applicant/ owner, or
  • The SC spouse who was previously an SPR (if listed as an owner)

Eligibility conditions

An SC/SPR household will qualify for the Citizen Top-Up in any of these instances:

  • The SPR spouse originally listed in the flat application obtains Singapore Citizenship status
  • An SC child is born to the SC applicant/ owner and spouse originally listed in the flat application
  • The SPR parent/ child/ sibling* originally listed in the flat application obtains Singapore Citizenship status

* Conversion of sibling to SC to qualify for the Citizen Top-Up applies only to flats purchased under the Orphans Scheme and Non-Citizen Spouse Scheme.

Timeframe

You must submit your application within 6 months of being eligible for the Citizen Top-Up.
