About 1.4 million lower-income Singaporeans will receive goods and services tax (GST) voucher cash payouts from this month, said the Ministry of Finance (MOF) on Tuesday (June 1).

Nine in 10 of those eligible are expected to receive their payouts automatically.

In addition, some 950,000 Singaporean households in Housing Board flats will receive their quarterly GST Voucher - U-Save rebates and special payment in July, added MOF in its statement.

The ministry encouraged Singaporeans to link their NRIC to PayNow by June 15 to receive their cash payouts earlier.

The one-off GST Voucher - Cash Special Payment of $200 - meant to help lower-income Singaporeans with their daily living expenses - will be credited into citizens' bank accounts on June 23, for those who have linked their NRIC to PayNow by June 15.

Those who have not but had provided their bank account numbers previously will be given the payment by bank transfer on June 30, said MOF. The rest will receive cheques sent to the addresses on their NRICs from July 15.
