National Health Group


Pre-retirement Planning

National Healthcare Group (NHG) is a leader in public healthcare in Singapore, with a vast and integrated network of primary healthcare polyclinics, acute care hospitals, national specialty centres, virtual specialty centres and business divisions. Together, NHG institutions comprise 9,100 employees, 35% of whom are mature and older employees (above the age of 40), with nearly 2% above 62 years.

The organisation actively re-hires its retirees and is the first healthcare organisation to sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Healthcare Services Employees’ Union (HSEU) to implement the provisions and recommendations set out in the Tripartite Advisory on the Re-employment of Older Workers 2008.

NHG’s mature workers attend pre-retirement planning and counselling at least three years before they reach the statutory retirement age of 62. Employees aged 55 to 62 attend programmes including Seniors Employment Guidance organised by National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) or other relevant courses conducted by the Centre for Seniors, etc, to learn about the adaptations needed for continued employment and how to lead pro-active healthy lifestyles after retirement.
