You will be placed onto the Premium Plan upon your inception into the Warrant Officer Corps. This scheme is designed to groom you for Warrant Officership and will prepare you to assume senior training and management positions in Our Army.
Under the Premium Plan, you can look forward to academic upgrading opportunities as early as the second year in service.
The key features of the Enhanced Warrant Officers Scheme (EWOS) are:
As part of Our Army's commitment towards developing our leaders, you will be groomed to take on the Warrant Officer appointment as early as the end of your 6th year in service. During the nurturing process, you can expect to attend a variety of courses, such as Route of Advancement (ROA) courses, which will prepare you for critical appointments within Our Army.
To groom you into an effective leader, our Nurturing Roadmap ensures that you will build a strong leadership foundation and receive regular educational upgrading opportunities. You will acquire the necessary capabilities to excel in a dynamic and complex environment.
Our Nurturing Roadmap is grounded on 3 key pillars — Continuing Education, Professional Military & Education Training, and Leadership Development.
Our Army Warrant Officers receive very competitive remuneration in comparison with the private sector. This is continually benchmarked and constantly reviewed.
One-time Bonus of $20,000 to $30,000 (Not applicable for Sponsorship Recipients)Note: Information correct as of 1 January 2020. The above information reflects the starting salary for the different vocations.
CARE benefits are given to servicemen who attain Warrant Officership. They are meant to supplement the financial needs of servicemen who serve until (or near to) the retirement age.
Our Army will make a one-off contribution into your CARE Account. Thereafter, a monthly contribution (5% of monthly Premium Salary) will be made into the account. Upon leaving the Army, you will be paid based on your age at the point of retirement. You will be eligible for higher percentages of monies in the CARE Account if you leave at/near the retirement age.
In addition, Combat Warrant Officers will also benefit from the Premium Bonuses (PrB) system, with payouts at 2 points — at the end of the 6th year in service for all, and at the end of the 12th year in service for 3WOs.
Strive for personal upgrading and development with our series of quality in-house training courses. These include organisational training, competency development and continuing education.

As a public officer on the Medisave-cum-Subsidised Outpatient (MSO) medical benefits scheme, you will receive an additional 2% of your gross monthly salary into your Central Provident Fund Medisave Account.

Any unused amount of the first $350 subsidy will be credited into your Medisave account, while the remaining $150 will be on a reimbursement basis.
Post Retirement Medical Insurance (PRMI) will be given to all Warrant Officers in selected vocations who retire at age 50 onwards, with at least 10 years of recognisable service. It will cover you from the day of retirement from the SAF till age 60.*
*PRMI does not cover spouses and children.
Every Warrant Officer will be given annual FLEX credits, with 1 FLEX credit equivalent to S$1. The amount of FLEX credits will increase with years in service. We recognise that every Warrant Officer has unique needs, so the FLEX credits can be used to pay for a diverse range of life's needs such as insurance, vacations and education, among others, for yourself and a dependent.
