Singapore Government Family Assistance

Marriage & Parenthood Schemes

What you should know

Many Singaporeans want to get married and have more children. However, some are deterred by the perceived challenges of raising a family – such as lack of time with their children, shortage of child care options, and an imbalance between work and family life. In response to these concerns, and to help Singaporeans realise their dreams of having bigger families, the Government has enhanced existing pro-family measures and introduced new initiatives to create a more conducive environment for you to start and raise a family. These schemes are aimed at making Singapore a great place for families.
