INTRODUCTION TO PIONEER GENERATION
DISABILITY ASSISTANCE SCHEME

The Pioneer Generation Disability Assistance Scheme (PioneerDAS) is part of the Pioneer Generation Package, which honours what Singapore's Pioneers have done for the country. Under this scheme, Pioneers who have disabilities can receive $100 a month, which they can use for expenses.​


Note: Due to the high volume of applications received, we will take about 3 months to process your application. We will inform you of the outcome in writing and successful applicants will receive grants in the following month, which will include payouts from the month the application is received. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
