Claim Your CDC Vouchers 2023: Where & How to Use Your $300

Every household in Singapore is eligible to claim $300 worth of CDC vouchers, aimed at enhancing support under the Assurance Package. Alongside the $1.5 billion support package stated in Budget 2022, the CDC vouchers are a welcome relief for households looking to stretch their dollars further. 

But what exactly are CDC vouchers, and how can they be used? Read on to find out more.

What are CDC Vouchers and Their Benefits

Community Development Council (CDC) vouchers are given to Singaporean households to help cushion the impact of increased goods and services tax (GST) in 2023. So, every Singaporean household can use the vouchers to buy goods and services like food and medical halls they need from every participating heartland merchant, hawker, and supermarket.

The CDC voucher scheme began in June 2020, giving many Singaporean households paper vouchers. Its introduction aimed to help every family with daily expenses and to improve local businesses, whereby Covid 19 had taken a tone on them.

After four months, a statement was issued that households would get CDC vouchers in the upcoming months and would get the vouchers in digital form (e-vouchers).

Here are several benefits of CDC vouchers:

  • Next-Day Payout

Merchants can get their payments the following day provided they have given their bank account or PayNow proxy (NRIC or UEN, mobile number). They should also give their details accurately to be eligible for next-day payment.

  • Zero Commissions/ Fees

Many digital payments usually charge some fees or commissions. However, merchants receive all CDC value paid to them for CDC vouchers. No fees are charged.

  • No Physical Handling Vouchers

There is no need to collect, count, and handle paper vouchers since the digital CDC vouchers are digitally tracked. This has helped create a seamless process and increase hygiene for hawkers and shops.
