Upon reaching your statutory age – 50 and 40 years old for Officers and WOSEs respectively – you will be considered an Ex-NSman. You have fulfilled your NS duty, and are no longer required to participate in any ORNS activities and notify MINDEF on your overseas travel.
You may dispose your personal equipment by returning it to any SAF eMart outlet or the Army Logistics Base. You may also dispose it on your own, as long as it does not result in the unauthorised usage of your equipment by other persons.
For example, you should cut your SAF uniforms and SAF helmet liner suspension assemblies and retention straps into small pieces, and remove all tags with the label “Property of SAF” before discarding them into the waste bin.
