Priority Scheme for Single Elderly Persons

Single elderly persons applying for PRH under this priority scheme must be at least 58 years old when they apply and must be at least 60 at the time of flat allocation, while also fulfilling the general eligibility criteria.

Eligible applications under this scheme receive priority processing over applications from ordinary families.

Single elderly persons may apply for the addition of family members and become qualified as ordinary family applicants on the Waiting List. Half of the waiting time accumulated in the one-person application, up to a maximum of three years, is credited to the family application. After adjusting the waiting time, a registration date equivalent to that of a family application is computed. This registration date serves as a reference for the subsequent allocation and enforcement of the relevant PRH application policies.
