In Singapore there are no practising doctor who are civil servant, and there is no government hospital. Except for the medical centres run by the Singapore armed forces, all medical centres, clinics, and hospitals are legally private.

There is only restructured hospitals. All of them are legally a private company

As such there are no civil servants. All are privately employed.

A pension scheme is not sustainable. Worldwide hard to find a single pension fund is able to keep up with their liabilities. Pension scheme is good for the old but disastrous for the young who have to pay for it.

As such progressively Singapore has removed all pension scheme since 1980s.

Instead of pension, we have a cpf scheme. All permanent resident and citizens will contribute 20% of their salary. While the employer will contribute another 17%. Exact percentage varies according to age.

CPF scheme is only sufficient if you are disciplined and do not use it for housing.

Dont worry. My classmate at nuh is a insta influencer. Many posts per day.
Mohh also never bat an eyelid.

The thing is as long as you declare your income when filing your iras returns, nobody cares.

The employment contract is just a contract. It is not a crime to breach it. Not filing your taxes is a criminal offence

Yes. Once you get your full reg and fulfill at least 3 months in ED or anaesthesia, you can write to MINDEF to express interest for NS MOCC.

Will take you for the next intake if spaces are available.
