Merdeka Generation Package

The Merdeka Generation Package (MGP) was announced in Budget 2019 to thank the Merdeka Generation (MG) for their contributions to our nation, and show our care for them in their silver years. It provides benefits to help MG seniors stay healthy and active, with better assurance over future healthcare costs.

Close to 500,000 Singaporeans will benefit from the MGP.

Eligibility Criteria

The MGP is for Singaporeans who:

  • Were born from 1 Jan 1950 to 31 Dec 1959 (i.e. 60 to 69 years old in 2019); and
  • Became Singapore citizens on or before 31 Dec 1996.

The MGP is also extended to Singaporeans who:

  • Were born on or before 31 Dec 1949 (i.e. 70 years old and above in 2019); and
  • Became Singapore citizens on or before 31 Dec 1996; and
  • Do not receive the Pioneer Generation Package.


Eligible Merdeka Generation seniors would have received hardcopy letter notifications on their MGP benefits in April 2019. They would have also received their Merdeka Generation Card and Welcome Folder, containing more details on the benefits, in late June 2019.
