For larger families with more than 5 family members including more than 2 dependents who are not earning any income, they may choose to apply for AS using Per Capita Income (PCI). In this case, the family will be eligible for AS if the PCI does not exceed $1,875. The PCI is calculated according to the formula below:Per Capita Income = Total gross monthly household income of family / Number of family members living in the same householdAll family members included in the application must be related by blood, marriage and/or legal adoption and living in the same residential address as reflected in the NRIC of the main applicant. Dependents refer to persons living in the same household who are not earning an income.
