About 150,000 Singaporeans to receive Grocery Vouchers to help with household expenses
Since 1 October 2020, Grocery Vouchers have been mailed out to 150,000 eligible Singapore citizens. Announced in the Unity Budget on 18 February 2020, the Grocery Vouchers aim to help less well-off Singaporeans with their household expenses during this period of extraordinary economic uncertainty.
2Singaporeans aged 21 and above this year, who live in 1- and 2-room HDB flats, and do not own more than one property, are eligible for these vouchers. Each eligible household member will receive his/her vouchers individually.
3Each recipient will receive $150 worth of Grocery Vouchers in October 2020, and a further $150 in December 2020. Another tranche of $100 worth of Grocery Vouchers will be issued to eligible Singaporeans in October 2021. No application is required. Eligible recipients will receive the vouchers via registered mail at their NRIC-registered address in October 2020.
4The Grocery Vouchers can be used at participating supermarkets: FairPrice, Giant, Prime Supermarket, and Sheng Siong Supermarket. To support Singaporeans in leading a healthier lifestyle, recipients will enjoy up to 5% discount off all Healthier Choice Symbol products, capped at 5% of the voucher value, when making payment with the Grocery Vouchers at FairPrice, Prime, and Sheng Siong supermarkets.
