Up to S$200 cash payments from budget for Singapore families

Eligible housesholds of Singapore’s Housing and Development Board will receive a one-off special payment of between S$120 and S$200 (HK$1,171) this year, as part of a S$900 million Household Support Package, Channel News Asia reports.

Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat announced on Tuesday more support for families in budget 2021 – named the Emerging Stronger Together Budget – as Singapore’s economic situation remained “uncertain” amid its worst recession since independence.

The package includes the extension of a service and conservancy charges rebate, a S$200 top-up in the relevant education account for each child under 21 and S$100 worth of Community Development Council vouchers for all Singaporean households.

Lower- and middle-income households will also receive an additional one-off cash payment of S$200 under the GST Voucher scheme.

The one-off GST Voucher – U Save Special Payment will benefit about 950,000 Singaporean households this year.

The payment of between S$120 and S$200 in total – amounting to an additional 50 percent of HDB households’ U-Save rebates for one year – will be credited in April and July, together with the regular U-Save rebates.
