Public talk on 22 May: Household budgets for older people

Edited to add: Please note there has been a change of venue due to high demand. The talk will now take place at the Lobby of the Oei Tiong Ham Building at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

How much does an older person need for a basic standard of living in Singapore? While income security is a major goal in social policy, there has been no precise benchmark of how much people need to live adequately in Singapore. This study establishes the budgets that older adults need for a basic standard of living, through consensual focus groups where ordinary members of public deliberate and agree on the things required for people to meet their physical, emotional and social participation needs. 

Join the research team (and moderator (Assoc Prof Kenneth Paul Tan) for a public talk presenting the results of this study.

Seats are limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please register your interest in attending.
