1.5 million Singaporeans to receive up to S0 in GST vouchers in August

ELIGIBILITY

The Finance Ministry said eligible recipients of MediSave cash and GSTV payments will automatically receive the payments if they have enrolled in the government’s disbursement schemes.

Citizens can check their eligibility for benefits on the govbenefits website – govbenefits.gov.sg – by logging in with their Singpass.

Those who have not previously enrolled in the GSTV plan can do so on the govbenefits website before July 9, as they will receive their payments in August.

Those who register after July 9 and before June 20, 2025 will receive their payments at the end of the following month.

Those who have not pre-registered will be notified by the end of August 2024 via the Singpass app, SMS or paper letters sent to their NRIC address if they do not have the Singpass app or a mobile phone number registered with Singpass, the MOF said.

The MOF noted that since 2021, it has been using PayNow as the primary payment mode for citizens who have linked their NRIC to PayNow.

The Ministry of Finance said it encourages Singaporeans to link their NRIC to PayNow by July 22 if they have an account with one of the 12 participating banks in Singapore. By doing so, they will be eligible to receive their GSTV 2024 by early August.

Those without bank accounts linked to PayNow-NRIC can update their bank account information on the govbenefits website by July 26 to receive payment starting August 12.
