CDC vouchers amounting to $600 dollars will be given out to all Singapore households over the next year. A total of $300 will be given out in June 2024, whilst the remaining $300 will be given out in January 2025.

A cost-of-living special payment of between $200 and $400 in cash will also be given to Singaporeans with income of not over $100,000 annually, and who own not more than one property.
