DOs and DON’Ts on filling your AIC Long Term Care Schemes application form
The Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) provides financial assistance to seniors with health conditions through its long-term care schemes. The financial assistance can come in the form of cash assistance as well as grants to offset cost for care of the senior.
These schemes include:
- Interim Disability Assistance Programme for the Elderly (IDAPE)
- Pioneer Generation Disability Assistance Scheme (PioneerDAS)
- Foreign Domestic Worker (FDW) Grant
- FDW Levy Concession for Persons with Disabilities (PWD)
To prevent delays in receiving your grant payout, it is essential that your AIC Long Term Care Schemes application form is accurately filled out. Here are some tips to guide you through the process:
DO ensure you or the applicant are eligible for the scheme being applied for.
DO go for a disability assessment before applying.
DO check that all necessary supporting documents are included.
DO ensure information on the supporting documents (such as your home address) matches with what was written on your application form.
DO ensure details in the form and supporting documents are legible and not cut off.
DO update the Foreign Domestic Worker’s Work Permit address to be the same as the FDW employer’s address if applying for the FDW Grant.
DO include training certificates of AIC-approved FDW Grant caregiver training if you are applying for the FDW Grant.
DO ensure all household members (including FDW employer if applicant is not the employer) are included for the financial status means test.
DO ensure all necessary persons have signed or affixed their thumbprints (for application form) and organisation stamps.
DON'T use correction fluid or tape if you need to make changes on the form. Strike out the errors and rewrite the correct details. Please countersign against all changes made.
