By Sean Yee        11 May 2023

It is widely known that a SAFRA membership comes with a trove of savings, which includes cheaper booking fees for its many sport and entertainment facilities, generous discounts from more than 140 partner merchants as well as exclusive rewards you can redeem with your SAFRAPOINTS. But that’s not all!

Did you know that as a SAFRA member, you can enrol yourself in Singlife’s year-long Dengue Insurance Plan for free? SAFRA members can also book complimentary legal consultations with professional lawyers, enjoy enhanced staycation packages and so much more

For both uninitiated and existing SAFRA members, here are 8 lesser known but invaluable benefits that come with a SAFRA membership that will surely enrich your lives. But before that, get your complimentary-year long SAFRA membership while you still can!

1. Education sponsorship that is bond-free

Education isn’t cheap – that’s a fact. SAFRA’s bond-free education sponsorship scheme subsidises the cost of Diploma, Degree, Master courses across a myriad of local and private universities, which includes Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) and James Cook University!  

Just for perspective, the tuition fee (excluding tax) for a full-time course at SUSS averages at $30,000 for Singapore citizens. For James Cook University, it will set you back at least $59,000 for any of its full-time programmes.

Did we mention that this education scholarship is bond-free as well? 

Applicants must have completed their full-time National Service and possess a valid SAFRA membership (Ordinary A, B or Life). The sponsorship has two yearly application periods, with the next beginning on 1 August 2023. So start applying away at safra.sg/promotions/bond-free-education-scheme!

2. Legal guidance for zero dollars

SAFRA members can sign up for free legal consultation sessions with lawyers who have volunteered their time to provide free legal information and professional guidance to SAFRA members. Since it began in 1994, more than 2,300 members have benefited. It may not seem much, until you realise that a typical consult with a lawyer goes for at least $100 per hour. All you need to qualify is a SAFRA membership.

The schedule be found at safra.sg/lifestyle/safra-legal-information-service. Appointment booking starts 1 month in advance from the date of the legal session.

3. Big discounts with big insurance coverages

Part of adulting is ensuring that both you and your loved ones are insured against uncertainty. Well, good news – SAFRA members are entitled to be covered under a free year-long Dengue Aid Insurance Plan provided by Singlife (You read that right – FREE). All you need is a SAFRA membership!
