The perks of membership: NTUC celebrates 60 years of community with a bonanza of benefits

Singaporeans who grew up in the 80s and 90s have a shared memory – visiting NTUC FairPrice as a child with their parents for the weekly supermarket run, queuing to pay and hearing the cashier ask: “NTUC member?” Their parents would hand over a red and white plastic card to accumulate precious points.

For many, that was the earliest impression of the National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) – an organisation that helped Singaporeans lower their cost of living. For others, NTUC stepped in to help when their parents faced retrenchment or unfair treatment in the workplace, while some received union vouchers to help them purchase school essentials.

Since its founding in 1961, NTUC’s commitment to workers has not wavered. It has kept pace with the needs of employers and employees by launching initiatives such as the Union Training Assistance Programme that allows NTUC members to defray costs of training, encouraging them to go for skills upgrading courses as well as career coaching schemes to help Singaporeans grow and thrive in a fast-moving economy.

Singapore’s socio-economic landscape has dramatically transformed, and so have Singaporean lifestyles. NTUC has continued to work with partners to secure discounts and provide benefits to match the diverse needs of its members. To celebrate 60 years since its founding, NTUC has launched a slew of membership privileges that will delight Singaporeans of all ages

HEALTH AND WEALTH

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, keeping ourselves and our families healthy is a priority for many. While there have been improvements in life expectancy, the rising costs of living have made healthcare and dependent protection more complex and unpredictable. 

Dedicated to its members’ well-being, NTUC is offering members’ rates for health screenings at NTUC Health Family Medicine Clinic and basic dental services at NTUC Health Denticare as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations. The latter includes consultation, scaling and polishing, fillings, simple dentures, extractions and in-office teeth whitening.

To support long-term wealth planning, members can enjoy zero per cent advisory fee on the newly launched Fullerton MoneyOwl WiseIncome Fund among other privileges with MoneyOwl, an NTUC social enterprise dedicated to providing comprehensive financial advice for people.

THE LOVE OF LEARNING

Since the country’s founding, Singapore’s economic transformation has been a shining example on the world stage. Its success can be partly attributed to Singaporeans’ keen interest in upskilling themselves to match the rapid pace of change. In that spirit, NTUC has collaborated with top education providers to offer learning opportunities for all ages.

Education and training provider NTUC LearningHub offers up-to-date courses relevant to a wide spectrum of industries. To celebrate NTUC’s 60th anniversary, it is offering members an LHUB GO 60-course package for just S$6, more than a third off the usual price of S$26. The package is a curation of courses – each teaching competencies coveted by employers – designed to help jobseekers and employees stay competitive in the job market. Upskill yourself on digital transformation, technology, personal development, health and safety, and adaptive skills through research-backed on-demand training.

Parents looking to enrich their children’s learning journey may be interested in Seed Institute’s Scientific Techniques Explained to Parents Simply (STEPS) programme. The programme provides practical tips tailored to children’s learning milestones. NTUC members enjoy a free Early Experiences Matter one-hour webinar worth S$20 when they sign up.

Encouraging the love of learning from a young age is made easier with a wide range of books and educational toys on the GoGuru online bookstore by Times. Not limited to just kids, adults can also shop for bestselling non-fiction and fiction titles. For NTUC members, enjoy S$6 off with a minimum spend of S$40.
