In February 2019, Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (Muis) and SNTC signed an agreement to support the community of Muslims with special needs. The Muis Special Needs Trust Scheme aims to benefit up to 100 Muslims with special needs in setting up trusts with SNTC.
Since the launch of the Muis Special Needs Trust Scheme, SNTC has received an increased volume of enquiries from the Muslim community. We have compiled a series of frequently asked questions on Facebook pertaining to Singapore’s Muslim Inheritance Law and the relevance to SNTC’s trust service. Such questions include whether the SNTC Trust is a permissible instrument in Islam, and what kind of financial planning caregivers can do to safeguard the needs of their dependants with special needs.
