2.9 million adult S’poreans to receive Assurance Package support in December

They will get $200-$800 AP cash and AP Cash Special Payment.

To aid Singaporeans amidst higher inflation and decrease the impact of the GST rate increase, the government will provide 2.9 million adult Singaporeans with financial support under the Assurance Package (AP).

The package includes cash payments, rebates, Community Development Council (CDC) vouchers, and MediSave top-ups.

Adult Singaporeans aged 21 and up by 2024 will receive cash payouts in December 2023 under the enhanced AP.

The amount ranges from $200 to $800. About 2.9 million adult Singaporeans will receive up to $600 in AP Cash.

About 2.5 million adults will also receive up to $200 in AP Cash Special Payment. 

On 28 September, DPM Wong announced an additional $1.1b Cost-of-Living (COL) Support Package to provide more relief for Singaporean households, especially lower- to middle-income families. The additional support includes a $0.8b enhancement to the AP, which brings its total to over $10b.
