Access Emergency Funds
At a Glance
If you are an immediate family member of a loved one who has lost mental capacity, you can apply under a simplified track of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) to withdraw funds from their bank accounts to care for their (and their dependents’) urgent needs.
Withdraw up to $5,000 in emergency funds
One-time withdraw of up to S$5,000 in emergency funds, while you seek other forms of assistance.
3 Steps to Apply
We worked with the Family Justice Courts (FJC) to design a 3-step application process. Here’s an overview so you’ll know what to expect at every step. You should typically receive a response within three working days of the submission of the application, if the application is in order.
Bring your loved one to a registered medical practitioner in Singapore for medical assessment to confirm that they have lost mental capacity. The doctor will prepare a medical report certifying this.
The doctor will submit the medical report and an email notification of this will be sent to you.
Application (First Bank Visit)
Once you receive a notification, head to any of these 6 POSB branches.
We will then assist you with making your application for emergency funds.
Fund Release (Second Bank Visit)
Once FJC grants your application, a Court Order will be sent to you by email.
Present the Court Order at the same POSB Branch you visited and we will be able to release the funds.
