The Self-Help Groups (SHGs) are set up to uplift the less privileged and low income households in the Chinese, Eurasian, Muslim and Indian communities respectively.
SHG contribution is applicable for Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents only. Employers are expected to deduct the Self-Help Group (SHG) contributions from their employees’ wages. Employees who do not wish to contribute can submit an opt-out form to the respective SHGs through their official procedure.
The SHGs Funds are as follow:
- Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC) Fund, administered by CDAC
- Eurasian Community Fund (ECF), administered by the Eurasian Association (EA)
- Mosque Building and Mendaki Fund (MBMF), administered by Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS)
- Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA) Fund, administered by SINDA
Based on employee data registered on Yuvo, Yuvo can auto-calculate and deduct the required SHG contributions based on an employee's ethnic group and/or religion when doing up payroll.
