Self-employed persons who earn a yearly net trade income of more than $6,000 are required by law to contribute to their Medisave. Do you know that people who do not pay their Medisave liabilities may face court action?
If this happens, they will need to pay additional court fines. Not to mention, their image and business will be affected. Precious time will also be wasted.

Unlike employees, self-employed persons do not enjoy medical benefits provided by employers. Therefore, it is especially important for self-employed persons like you to contribute regularly to Medisave while you are still working. Don’t leave yourself out of the Medisave scheme and face the harsh reality of huge medical expenses in unexpected circumstances.
