MyInfo (e-citizen service) - What You Need To Know

Feeling tired of filling-up all the same old personal details, again and again, in the online forms when you are requesting for services like opening a bank account If you are a SingPass holder, your life will get easier come next year when more local businesses are integrated MyInfo in their e-services and apps.   

MyInfo is an e-citizen service launched in May last year with the aim to pull personal data, such as Names, NRIC Numbers and Addresses from public agencies for the use in private sector. Pilot run has been carried out  with four banks - DBS, OCBC, UOB and Standard Chartered since May and four more banks (Citibank, HSBC, Maybank and American Express) will be on board by the first quarter of next year. 

From next month, businesses want to sign-up for the MyInfo integration can start to do so via their Partner Portal. The request will be subjected to assessment/approval. 

How Does MyInfo works?
1. All 3.3 million SingPass users will be enrolled in MyInfo by end of this year (as stated by GovTech in Sep)
2. During the online form filling-up stage, you can click on "Retrieve MyInfo" button to auto-retrieve your personal details.
