The Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, ICA will study the viability of introducing another NRIC re-registration for Singapore residents when they are older. 

This is so that the information captured, will be up to date. 

Speaking during the ministry's Committee of Supply debate, Senior Minister of State for Home Affairs, Masagos Zulkifli, says this is especially relevant as life expectancy increases. 

He was responding to MP for Tampines GRC, Baey Yam Keng's suggestion on replacing NRICs every 15 to 20 years for security and functional reasons.

The current practice for Singapore residents is to register for an NRIC at the age of 15.
