Your employer will be required to make monthly contributions to a compulsory social security account and you will no longer have to acquire a new working visa every time you transfer between jobs.
The range of benefits that a Singapore Permanent Residency (PR) can enjoy includes affordable housing due to the lower stamp duty, a PR would be able to buy a HDB flat after three years, supposing the income does not exceed a certain amount.
A Singapore Permanent Resident (PR) can leave and enter the country without visa restrictions and also a better standing to public schooling options for children.
Job stability is another great benefit. You will have access to more employment opportunities within the country without the hassle of requiring any work passes. Employers generally prefer hiring a local (PR or Citizen) as it saves them the trouble of getting work passes. In addition, having more locals in the team means having a higher quota for hiring foreigners.
Lastly, there are financial benefits in the form of the Central Provident Fund (CPF). CPF acts like a retirement plan so that you can feel secure as you get older. You can use the CPF to pay for medical expenses, housing, and even investments. The companies that you become affiliated with are required to contribute to your CPF based on a percentage of your salary.
While nobody can guarantee 100% success rates in Singapore Permanent Residency (PR) application but one can be assured that every application is being considered on its own merits.
