My mum and I are on the NTUC Advantage Heath shield and rider since in 2006. This season She is 61 and I am 38. What are your ideas on creating a rider tagged to our shield health plans from private insurer? I am willing to keep the rider for my mum as she does not have any income source and has zero insurance (besides the healthshield). Could you double check the rider and plan names for me personally. I’m not finding that one, at least not easily. Quote: Will it be wise for me personally to deploy the money used for my rider into Disability Income insurance?

I think DII is quite important, as you know probably. Itd be a higher priority Ordinarily, but I’ll hold off until I learn more. I am a US person and my Singapore employer is moving me from a defined benefit plan (lump-sum payout) to a defined contribution plan (SRS). Only the ongoing company is contributing to the SRS, which means this will be taxes deductible on Singapore however, not on US fees. Any chance they could offer you a good or better 401(k) plan instead? Quote: I understand the best SRS account balance needs to be reported to the united states annually. Seems pretty straightforward (hopefully) up to that point.

  • If your last position didn’t workout, why was that
  • Top 100 Hedge Funds
  • Verify required input guidelines
  • Manage rent terms, local rental rates and security deposits
  • Net Export that equals Exports minus Imports

Let me know if Im lacking anything. Quote: My main question is what’s the best “US person appropriate” investments for these accounts? I really believe device trusts or ETFs are believed PFICs and really should be avoided. You could buy Singapore Savings Bonds and/or other Singapore Government Securities using SRS funds, but those are low yielding. The very best I can come up with otherwise that’s obviously not going to run afoul of PFIC guidelines is an accumulation of individual bank or investment company and/or insurance shares such as DBS, OCBC, and UOB.

Those seem to be OK since there’s an exception for genuine bank and insurance firms (their stocks). They deliver dividends, and if offered scrip dividends I would take those of cash dividends back into your SRS instead. Cash dividends will be unqualified dividends and subject to standard U.S. Net Investment TAX if appropriate. Upon SRS withdrawal you might be able to take a foreign taxes credit based on what you pay to IRAS then, however the U.S.

I think you’ll have to figure out what part is due to excluded income that the U.S. I expect (which part is a general category and which not). I do not look forward to this. I think you have to take care of the employer’s SRS contributions just as you would every other earned income, taxable, and reportable now, when deposited. As well as the IRS will immediately “claw back” some portion of the in advance Singapore tax savings if you’re above the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion/Foreign Housing Exclusion. How much the IRS will claw back depends on how far above those exclusions you are.

Hope the above-mentioned questions/answers are enough to get clarified your uncertainties about PPF accounts from all angles. You may also like to read: What’s NPS (National Pension System)?

The social go back to investment in Nepal is the cheapest in the region. According to the growth diagnostics decision tree, this is triggered by poor geography, low individual capital, or/and bad infrastructure. As will be shown later, poor geography and low human capital do not be eligible to be as strong a constraint as bad infrastructure is. So, the main cause for low social returns to investment must be triggered by bad infrastructure for similar reasons talked about above. Each one of these facts and evaluation are constant with the hypothesis that bad infrastructure is the most strongest and binding constraint on financial activity in Nepal. De, P. (2009).
