S$300 CDC vouchers now available for every S’porean household: How to claim & redeem

The next tranche of CDC vouchers is finally here. 

To claim it, head over to this link with your SingPass (if you encounter login difficulties, there are Digital Ambassadors on hand to assist you).

There’s no need to download anything else to claim this $300 worth of vouchers. You’ll receive an SMS with a unique voucher link to download the vouchers.

And beware of scams. 

In fact, the Community Development Council specifically reminded the public to make sure that their unique voucher link starts with <https://voucher.redeem.gov.sg>. 

Also note that RedeemSG will never send SMSes asking for your personal information or banking details. 

 Here’s a step-by-step video guide to redeeming your CDC vouchers:

Do tell and share with your friends and loved ones. After all, this S$300 is meant to help Singaporeans fight cost of living pressures. 

There’s more good news: Aside from your heartland merchants and hawkers (that’s around 20,000, last we checked a couple of weeks ago), this current batch of CDC vouchers can be used at major supermarket chains as well: NTUC FairPrice, HAO Mart, Prime, Sheng Siong and U Stars.

It’s a half-half split. Out of the S$300, S$150 is for redeeming at heartland shops and hawkers while the other S$150 is for supermarkets.   

“I hope all of you enjoy the added convenience of this set of vouchers,” said Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong when launching the vouchers at Kampung Admiralty today (Jan 3).

This latest tranche of CDC vouchers is yet another assurance from this Government that is doing more to help Singaporeans manage inflation and the GST increase.   

Speaking at the launch, DPM Wong said that the CDC vouchers are part of a comprehensive support package to cushion the effects of higher inflation and the GST increase (which kicked in at the start of 2023). 

If you recall back in October 2022, the PAP Government announced a S$1.5 billion support package for cost-of-living relief, which included CDC vouchers, a special cash payment of up to S$500, public transport subsidies and vouchers, and enhanced financial assistance schemes. 

“We provided adult Singaporeans with up to S$700 in cash last month,” DPM Wong added.

More help will be available later this month with the next round of U-Save rebates to help households offset their utility bills.

“In fact for the whole of FY2022, we have given HDB households double their regular U-Save rebates,” said DPM Wong.

You can view the full list of merchants, hawkers and supermarket outlets that accept the CDC vouchers here.

There’ll be more help from the Government coming later this year. Stay tuned for Budget 2023 this Feb 14 for more details.
