To commemorate the 45th anniversary of NS, MINDEF and MHA will provide about $100 million worth of SAFRA and HomeTeamNS benefits to more than 900,000 National Servicemen. This is a one-off recognition initiative to thank our National Servicemen for their dedicated service to the nation.
As a broad-based and inclusive initiative, all who have served NS or are serving NS will benefit from this. Every National Serviceman will receive $50 to $100 worth of SAFRA/HomeTeamNS vouchers, which can be used to redeem lifestyle privileges.
In addition, National Servicemen who are currently serving Operationally Ready National Service (ORNS), or who have completed their ORNS training cycle in full, will also be offered a year’s free SAFRA or HomeTeamNS membership. We hope that more National Servicemen and their families will be able to enjoy the subsidised facilities and privileges offered by SAFRA and HomeTeamNS.
National Servicemen will be eligible for these benefits based on their NS status as at 22 Oct 2012. The details are as follows:
