A tissue-seller’s application for a hawker licence has been turned down because she did not meet the “CPF criteria”, claimed one Facebook user.
The Central Provident Fund Board’s advisory for self-employed persons on it website said that any self-employed person who earned an annual Net Trade Income of more than $6,000 has to contribute to Medisave.
The tissue-seller, who appeared disabled, decided to apply for a street hawking licence when someone reported her for illegal hawking.

This is the second time the tissue-seller is making the application for the licence. According to the Facebook user, her previous application was rejected because she did not meet the “Minimum Unemployment Period”.
The tissue seller is a resident of Ang Mo Kio GRC.
