If the monthly income of the individual is S$1101-S$1800, the subsidy rate for citizens is 50% while PRs get 30%. If the monthly income of the individual is S$1801-S$2600, the subsidy rate for citizens is 45% while PRs get 25%. If the monthly income of the individual is S$2602-S$3100, the subsidy rate for citizens is 40% while PRs get 20%.
