Mutual Benefit Organisations

Mutual Benefit Organisations (MBOs) are membership-based entities which provide relief on a mutual help basis to meet members’ funeral expenses (upon death) and hospitalisation expenses.

There are currently 75 MBOs. 

See the list.

The MBOs are regulated by the Registry of the Mutual Benefit Organisations, under the Mutual Benefit Organisation Act (Cap 191) and the Mutual Benefit Organisation Rules.

As a regulator, the Registry seeks to protect the collective interests of MBO members by ensuring safe custody and lawful utilisation of the MBO funds by the office bearers in the MBOs. The Registry also promotes sound management and governance of MBOs.

This way, people in Singapore will have greater confidence in the MBOs to meet their needs. This could lead to some volunteering their time in the governance or administration of the MBOs, thus building a gracious and caring society we call home.
