Does your maid work permit expiry when their contract end?

Cos my maid 2 year contract not up yet but the WP going to expiry (it's about 1 year).. How come???http://www.kiasuparents.com/kiasu/forum/posting.php?mode=post&f=49#

Also insurance we buy is covered for the whole contract right?

Mine former helper's WP expired two to three months before her contract was up. Think they started counting when I signed the documents.

Is yours a transfer maid?

If passport validity is short, ie 12 month only then you would only be issued with work permit less then 12 month.
Work permit can always finish before contract if passport is less then 2 years.
Renew passport then you can extend WP.
