The Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) Levy Concession for Persons with Disabilities lets families pay the Foreign Domestic Worker levy at a concessionary rate of $60 a month, instead of $300. Each household is eligible for up to two FDW levy concessions, caring for two loved ones at any one time.
To get the FDW Levy Concession:
Feeding, dressing, showering, toileting, transferring and/or mobility.
If you are hiring the foreign domestic worker, you must be the care recipient, or related to the care recipient and living in the same address.
The care recipient must be a Singapore Citizen.
FDW employers caring for Persons with Disability can apply.
For greater convenience, those who meet the age, citizenship and residential address eligibility criteria for the care of a young child (below 16) or aged person (67 years or above) need not apply for FDW levy concession. This is because MOM will grant you the concession based on the information you provided during your online application for an FDW.

Care recipients who are currently attending a
Special Education School or disability care services such as
Day Activity Centres can have the assessment done onsite (please check with your school or service provider if it provides such assessment service).
If the school or service provider does not provide CAF assessment or if the care recipients with ID or ASD do not receive disability services from the community, you may approach the Therapy Hubs (click
here for the list) for CAF assessment. Please click
