We have simplified the CHAS renewal process. Those who continue to meet the eligibility criteria can have their CHAS cards/status automatically processed for renewal three months before expiry. 

Their households’ renewal eligibility will be evaluated based on their latest household circumstances (i.e. income and composition) and they will receive a letter informing them of the outcome.

CHAS cards typically have a validity period of two years.

For more information on the simplified CHAS renewal process, please call our hotline or submit an enquiry here.

If your household did not receive the invitation letter for renewal two months before your cards expire, you can pick up a CHAS application form at any Community Centre or Club (CC), Community Development Council (CDC), Public Hospital or Polyclinic or download the application form here.

CHAS is a household based application, all family members related by blood, marriage and/or legal adoption, sharing the same NRIC address have to be included in the application.

The CHAS application process has been simplified to make it more convenient for all to apply for CHAS. With this change, one household member (who is a Singapore Citizen aged 21 years old and above) can apply for CHAS on behalf of his/her household members, using the simplified CHAS application form dated as of July 2019.

Please send the completed and signed application form to P.O. Box 680, Bukit Merah Central Post Office, Singapore 911536. Generally, your application will be processed within 15 working days from the date of receipt of the completed application form. If you have not received the outcome after 15 working days, you may call the CHAS hotline at 1800-275-2427 (1800-ASK-CHAS) to enquire about your application status.
