Sooo I MR'ed this year and I got a MOB notification for next year.
Anyone can explain this?
Please call the
24/7 NS hotline @1800-3676767 to speak to a customer service
officer to liaise with your NS unit.
NSmen are required to apply for an Exit Permit for overseas
trips of 6 months or longer. NSmen who go overseas for more than 14
days but less than 6 months must notify MINDEF of their overseas
trips through the MINDEF Notification Centre (MNC). The possession
of an Exit Permit or the notification or the notification of MINDEF
Notification Centre does not absolve NSmen from mobilisation and to
report for NS duties when required.
During mobilisation manning period, NSmen can still travel overseas but are required to seek approval from their unit to be exempted from mobilisation prior to departure. Failing which, disciplinary actions will be taken.
(C) Mobilisation Manning
Before you ORD or your first operational manning, your unit will brief you on the following:
During mobilisation exercise, your NS unit may be required to
move out for field exercises after the normal reporting is done.
Being mindful of your varying commitments, the SAF will make every
effort to minimise disruption to your civilian careers when
mobilisation exercises are held.
How can my family support my mobilisation?
You are encouraged to keep your family members informed of your whereabouts especially during your Operational Manning Periods. They should also be informed of how and where they can contact you to facilitate your speedy mobilisation.
Your family members should also know your NS unit's code words and be prepared that you are required to remain at the unit for a longer period if the mobilisation should involves field exercises.
If you have any family members that are 16 years of age or above, they can acknowledge any call-up notice serve at your residence. Upon receipt, they must contact you immediately.

MINDEF Reserve consists of NSmen who have completed their NS training cycle but have yet to reach the statutory age. They are no longer called back for In-Camp Training (ICT) but are still liable for NS.
What happens after I completed my NS Training
The minimum requirement for completion of NS Training Cycle is 7 HK and 10 ORNS years (8 HK and 13 ORNS years for Key Appointment Holders). However, you may be asked to continue your service as a Reservist On Voluntary Extended Reserve Service (ROVERS) to ensure fulfillment of operational requirements. Some ROVERS may even continue to serve beyond the statutory age of 50 and 40 for Officers and WOSE respectively as VOLUNTEERS in higher operational appointments.
Once you have completed your NS training cycle and/or standdown as ROVERS/VOUNTEER, you will be posted to the MINDEF Reserve (MR) List at the end of the work year. However, you may still be activated during operational exigencies and remain liable for NS up to the respective statutory ages.
Note that you are to disregard your previous unit’s mobilisation codewords as you are no longer required to report for mobilisation activation for your previous units. A new codeword will be assigned to you accordingly should you be mobilised while you are in MR. If you are travelling overseas for 6 months or more, you are still required to apply for Exit Permit.
1. What is meant by no longer liable for National
Under the Enlistment Act, Chapter 93, NSmen will not be liable for NS call-ups when they reach the statutory age limit of 40 for Warrant Officers, Specialists and Enlistees (WOSEs) and 50 for Officers. In other words, personnel reaching the stated statutory age limit will no longer be liable to be called up for any NS activities such as ICT, IPPT, mobilisation etc.
2. What should I do to my SAF personal equipment now that I have completed my NS liability?
You may dispose the items in the normal ways as long as the items do not end up in an unauthorised usage.
It really would be helpful for them to let us know about this during ICTs. And there we thought it was all over.
Hope don't kena activated.
