Chia Shi-Lu on Work Injury Compensation Bill(Updated: )
Offer some form of pension arrangement as an option for workers who suffer permanent disabilities and regular financial support for their children, perhaps until the age of 18. MP Chia Shi-Lu made this suggestion for the Work Injury Compensation Bill in Parliament on Tuesday (Sep 3). He noted that in Singapore, workers can only claim a lump sum. Disbursing a lump sum all at once has its risks, as the money could be spent too quickly or unwisely, he said.
