This is part of the Singapore Government’s Budget 2020 Care and Support Package.
In October, the Government will issue $100 worth of grocery vouchers to about 160,000 Singaporeans.
“This is part of the Care and Support Package announced at Budget 2020 to support less well-off Singaporeans with their household expenses during this period of economic uncertainty,” said the Ministry of Finance (MOF) on Monday (Sep 27).
This group of Singaporeans are aged 21 and above, live in a one or two room HDB flat and do not own more than one property.
They will receive the vouchers next month via registered mail. If the vouchers cannot be placed in the letterbox, it will be delivered to their doorstep.
If door delivery is unsuccessful, a Delivery Notification Card will be left, specifying which post office to collect the vouchers from.
The vouchers, which expire in December 2022, can be used at Giant, NTUC, FairPrice, Prime Supermarket, and Sheng Siong. Items with the Healthier Choice Symbol products are entitled to an extra five per cent off at all supermarkets except Giant.
