When will I receive my 2021 GST Voucher – Cash?
Citizens who are eligible, have signed up for a previous Government payout (e.g. the 2020 GST Voucher or SG Bonus) and have indicated their bank account details will receive their GST Voucher – Cash Special Payment in June 2021 and GST Voucher – Cash in August 2021.
If you have not signed up previously, you will need to
Sign Up. The deadline to sign up for the 2021 GST Voucher is 30 April 2022. More information on where to sign up and provide updated bank account details will be available at a later date.
The GST Voucher – Cash payment will be made via PayNow-NRIC, direct bank crediting to your DBS/POSB, OCBC or UOB savings/current bank account or cheque.
If your NRIC has been linked to your bank account on PayNow, your GST Voucher – Cash will be credited to the bank account linked to your PayNow-NRIC. To check if you have linked your NRIC to your bank account on PayNow, please contact your bank directly.
If you do not have PayNow-NRIC, your payment will be credited to your bank account. Please note that your GST Voucher – Cash can only be credited to a local DBS/POSB, OCBC or UOB bank account as the majority of Singaporeans have bank accounts with the three local banking groups.
If you do not have a bank account registered with us, a cheque will be mailed to you.
Your cheque for your GST Voucher – Cash is valid for 6 months from the cheque issuance date, or till 31 December of the following year, whichever is earlier. If you forget to bank in or encash your cheque, the money will be credited to your CPF Ordinary Account when the cheque expires, and it will be subjected to CPF withdrawal rules.
If you are aged 21 and above, please proceed to the bank issuing the cheque, with the following documents:
- Original documentary evidence stating the beneficiary's medical condition (e.g. doctor's memorandum, medical report or court order). The date of the document(s) should not be more than 1 year before the cheque encashment, unless it specifically states that the patient's condition is permanent;
- Your original NRIC;
- Photocopy of the beneficiary's NRIC; and
- Beneficiary's GST Voucher cheque for his/her GST Voucher − Cash.
You will be required to sign a Letter of Indemnity at the bank.
If you are unable to fulfil any of the above conditions, please call the GST Voucher hotline at 1800 2222 888 for further assistance.
