Helper Hire FAQ

As an employer, you are obliged to pay your helper salary timely, provide adequate and suitable food, insurance cover, medical care (which covers hospitalization), a safe and conducive working environment.

In order to hire a FDW from an agency, you will need to pay an agency fee, MOM documentation fee of $60 as well as an insurance plan (priced at around $250 to $380 for a 2 year period) for the helper. For transfer helpers, there is a placement fee of $600- $800 where the employer will need to pay on behalf and deduct from the helper’s salary thereafter. For helpers who need to exit Singapore before their work permit can be issued will incur a cost of an additional month of their salary. For hiring of fresh helper (i.e. getting someone new from their country of origin i.e. Philippines, Indonesia or Myanmar), there are also overseas charges for processing of their documents. In addition, the FDW will also have to pay placement fees to the overseas agent and to the agency in Singapore. The placement fee range from 3 months of their salaries to about 7 months (depending on the amount the overseas agent charge. For Singapore agent, MOM has capped the amount to maximum 2 months salary for a 2 year contract.) These placement fees will be paid on behalf by the employer and deducted from the helper’s salary.

Generally we recommend hiring of transfer helpers due to the lower agency fees involved and the possibility of having a face to face interview. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of having a good personality fit. Transfer helpers are more experienced and hence they command higher salaries and more off days. Hence for families who are looking for helpers who are independent and able to work with minimal supervision and able to provide the helpers all Sundays off, should consider transfer helpers. Ex- Singapore helpers can also be with good experience. Since they are not able to have face to face interviews and also the costs of bringing them in, they generally command lower salaries and willing to accept fewer off days compared to transfer helpers. However, they may still request for more after they come to Singapore. For families who need helpers during Sundays and are unable to provide all Sundays off, will need to consider fresh helpers from overseas. However fresh helpers will require more supervision so it will be feasible if it is a second helper or if there are other family members at home to supervise them. Nonetheless, we strongly recommend employers to provide all Sundays off as it is important for helpers to have off days to rest and recuperate. The option of not giving all Sundays off, may not be sustainable over the long run. The fresh helper after getting to know other helpers will compare and may be dissatisfied in the long run. Maintaining an open communication with your helper and checking in on how she is coping is important for a good long term relationship.

You can claim tax relief if:
a. You are a married woman and have elected for separate assessment;
b. You are married and your husband is not resident in Singapore;
c. You are separated, divorced or widowed and living with your unmarried child.

The relief is two times the amount of maid levy paid for one maid. It can only be set off against the earned income of the wife. Single taxpayers are not eligible for this relief. You can get the relief even if the levy is paid by the husband.

When I needed a helper urgently for the care of my newborn before I started work, he was able to arrange for interviews very quickly for me.
