I have not used SAFRA facilities or benefits for quite some time. Am I still required to pay membership subscription fees?

Membership is renewed automatically two months before the membership expiry period regardless of the member using SAFRA facilities/benefits. The membership fee may be charged to the SAFRA DBS Credit/Debit Card.

To resign or opt-out from the auto-renewal, a member must submit in writing his/her intentions to SAFRA at least 3 months before their membership expires. Please include your name and NRIC number. Alternatively, you can fax these details to us at 6377 9866.

I want to withdraw my membership. How do I go about it?

If you wish to terminate your membership, do write in to us and include your name and NRIC number. Alternatively, you can fax these details to us at 6377 9866.

I am going overseas. Is there a way to put my membership on hold or waive my fees?

Of course! You may apply to be placed on the list of Absent Members if you are leaving Singapore for a continuous period of one year. The membership fees will be waived for the listed period of absence (maximum 3 years). To apply, write to SAFRA, Membership Services Division or fax a request 6377 9866 with supporting documents, e.g. exit permit, letter from your employer or educational institute, one month before your departure.

Memberships will be extended for any earlier payment made for the period of absence. You may apply for an extension of the listed period of absence upon its expiry, subject to acceptance by SAFRA.

New SAFRA Membership Card

How does the New Membership Card (Red) differs from the current Membership Card (Grey) that I am holding?

SAFRA Membership will start on the first of the following month upon approval of the application. (e.g. Member who join during the month of June 2014 for 2 years will have his membership start on 1 Jul 2014).

Membership expiry date is based on the last day of every month regardless of join date. (e.g. Member who joins during the month of June 2014 for 2 years will have his membership due on 30 June 2016.)

Do I need to change my current Membership Card too the New Membership Card?

You are required to change the New SAFRA Membership Card (at no cost) by 31 August 2014 as the old Membership Card will cease to function from 1 September 2014 onwards or at expiry of your Membership (whichever is earlier).

Renewal Letters had been sent out in March 2014 to encourage Members to change to the New Membership Card or Upgrade to SAFRA DBS Credit / Debit Card.

Please note that each Member is only allowed to hold ONE (1) Membership Card (either SAFRA Membership Card, SAFRA DBS Credit Card or SAFRA DBS Debit Card.)

SAFRA DBS Credit/Debit Card

What is this new SAFRA DBS Credit / Debit Card about?

This is a new SAFRA multi-functional card issued jointly with DBS. SAFRA members will now be able to get the convenience of multiple functionalities such as ATM, Credit/Debit, NETS or and contactless payment features of CEPAS (NETS Flashpay) and MasterCard Paypass. However, SAFRA members are still welcomes to apply for the new Membership card.

Is my SAFRA DBS Credit/Debit Card expiry date the same as my SAFRA Membership expiry date?

Like all Credit/Debit Cards, your SAFRA DBS Credit/Debit card has a 5-year validity date. The expiry date on the SAFRA DBS Credit/Debit Card only shows the expiry of the Credit card. The membership expiry may or may not be the same.

If the validity of your SAFRA Membership is shorter than your SAFRA DBS Credit/Debit card, your SAFRA DBS Credit/Debit card will cease function upon membership expiry.

Please note that each Member is only allowed to hold ONE (1) Membership Card (either SAFRA Membership Card, SAFRA DBS Credit Card or SAFRA DBS Debit Card).
