FAQs

What is Total Monthly Gross Household Income?

Monthly Gross Household Income refers to the gross monthly wages or salaries before deduction of employee CPF contributions and personal income tax for all family members living together. It includes basic wages, overtime pay, commissions, tips, and other allowances.

For example:

  • Your basic salary is $1,000, including overtime pay for the month of June $200, total monthly gross income will be $1,000 + $200 = $1,200)
  • Your Spouse basic salary is $800 with no overtime pay, total monthly gross income will be $800
  • Total monthly gross household income is $1,200 + $800 = $2,000

What is Per Capita Income (PCI) and how do I calculate it?

Per Capita Income (PCI) is calculated by taking the total gross household monthly income divided by the total number of family members living together.

For example:

  • Your Monthly Gross Income is $1,200 and for your Spouse it’s $800
  • Total number of family members living together is 5 (including yourself)
  • Per Capita Income (PCI) will be ($1,200+$800) / 5 = $400
