Single Elderly Persons Priority Scheme

Single Elderly Persons Priority Scheme

The Applicant must be 58 years of age or above, and must have reached the age of 60 by the time of flat allocation, while also fulfilling the general eligibility criteria of the application for PRH.

Eligible applications will generally be processed earlier than applications by ordinary families.

The Applicant may apply for addition of family members and the application will be switched to a family application under the priority scheme concerned without the need for a new registration and continue to use the previous application number. Half of waiting time originally accumulated by the Applicant as a single person will be credited to his/her family application up to a maximum of three years. After adjustment of the waiting time, his/her application will be given a registration date equivalent to that of a general application (i.e. a G-number Equivalent Date). This registration date will serve as a reference for the subsequent allocation and enforcement of relevant PRH application policies.
