ElderShield premiums are based on the age at which you join the scheme, and are payable until the policy anniversary after your 65th birthday.
There are 2 key premium features:
1. ElderShield premiums are fully payable by MediSave
You may use your own MediSave to pay your premiums. Family members (i.e. spouse, parents, children, siblings or grandchildren) can also use their MediSave to help you pay your premiums on your behalf.
If there are insufficient funds in your MediSave, you can top up your MediSave via e-Payment through CPF e-Cashier .
2. ElderShield premiums do not increase over time
Your premium amount is determined at the age of entry and does not increase with age. Premiums are payable annually until the policy anniversary after your 65th birthday or when you make a successful claim, whichever is earlier.

You may still be able to receive some payouts when you become severely disabled if you paid a minimum amount of premiums. The level of payouts you can receive will depend on the amount of premiums paid.
