Enhance your CareShield Life / ElderShield coverage for greater financial assurance
One unfortunate moment in life is all it takes to become fully dependent on others for life’s simplest tasks. Long-term care protection will ensure you can afford the care you need in the event of severe disability.
If you hold a CareShield Life or ElderShield policy, you can enhance your coverage with MyLongTermCare or MyLongTermCare Plus for greater financial assurance.
Higher monthly payouts for life
Get S$200 to S$5,000 more monthly, that's on top of the disability payout from your CareShield Life or ElderShield. The monthly payouts start when you're unable to perform at least 2 out of 6 Activities of Daily Living (ADL)2.
A plan that offers holistic care
A well-rounded plan that offers more than just monthly payouts. For example, our Dependant Care Benefit offers financial support for your kids so that you can leave your worries aside and focus on recovery.

What it means to have a plan that's with you for the long haul
Whether you choose MyLongTermCare or MyLongTermCare Plus, you'll get the freedom to pick different coverage options according to your needs. Here's how they work:
- Receive S$200 to S$5,000 per month (in increments of S$100) on top of the basic disability payout from your government plan and you'll receive it for as long as you're severely disabled.
