S pass issued when renewing the EP

Guys,

One of my friend has got S pass when he's trying to renew his EP. The reason was his salary is not enough comparing to his age to be eligible for an EP.

Just want to understand on what basis they decide on salary & applicant's age to issue an EP.

You should check the eligibility criteria to get an EP. Without any head and tail in your message, how do you expect someone to advise you on what basis they offered him S pass?

I had mentioned many times that provide information such as position held, years of experiences, education, which field he works, salary etc. before asking such type of questions.

MoM only approves EPs within a salary range in line with market norms. If his years of experience (and market prices) increase, but his salary not (or less), then he will at some point fall outside of the range and cannot get EP any more. He should count himself lucky to get an S-Pass despite being underpaid!

@Surya, He's working as an IT Manager (AVP) at famous bank in SG for more than 08 years now. He is 45+ in age having 20+ years experience in the industry.

So after new rules introduced by MOM last year only this happened when he tried to renew his EP.

Thanks beppi..

So, by above details (though salary is another important part which is missing) but should have got EP, unless the salary is much lower to the market standard as Beppi said.
