Update: SWEAG and PTRG applications will no longer be accepted after 31 Dec 2022, 6pm.

Update as of 2022

What Is It?

  1. The Senior Worker Early Adopter Grant (SWEAG) provides support of up to $125,000 for employers to increase their staff’s retirement and re-employment ages ahead of the legislative schedule.
  2. The Part-Time Re-Employment Grant (PTRG) provides funding support of up to $125,000 to employers that commit to a part-time re-employment policy for eligible senior workers.

Since the launch of the SWEAG and PTRG on 1 Jul 2020, many progressive firms have successfully applied for the grants to raise their internal retirement and re-employment ages above the prevailing statutory ages, and commit to a part-time re-employment policy for its eligible senior workers. As of Oct 22, at least 6,400 and 5,200 firms have successfully applied for the SWEAG and PTRG respectively. This is expected to benefit at least 50,000 and 42,000 senior workers respectively.

As of 31 Dec 2022, NTUC e2i has ceased accepting applications for the SWEAG and PTRG. We hope that firms will continue to implement progressive employment practices to create an age-friendly workplace for their senior workers and encourage them to stay in the workforce.

Update as of 2023

The Ministry of Manpower has launched a New Part Time Re-Employment Grant. Interested applicants can find out more from the Workforce Singapore website.
