The vouchers can be claimed digitally at go.gov.sg/cdcv. One resident from each household can use their SingPass account to log in and claim the vouchers. The vouchers will remain valid till December 31, 2024.

“A key pillar of this package is the additional SGD 600 CDC Vouchers for all Singaporean households. The first SGD 300 will be disbursed in June, starting today [June 25]. This is on top of the SGD 500 given out in January this year, making it a total of SGD 800 for each Singaporean household this year,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.

“The SGD 300 vouchers can be split into two equal parts: Half of the vouchers, or SGD 150, can be used at participating hawkers and heartland merchants. There are approximately 23,000 participating hawkers and heartland merchants, and CDCs have continued to onboard more. The other SGD 150 CDC Vouchers can be used at participating supermarkets. There are now 8 participating supermarket chains with 415 outlets. So, you have many options to use the vouchers,” the minister added.

The eight supermarkets participating in the new scheme are Ang Mo Supermarket, Giant Singapore, HAO Mart, NTUC FairPrice, Prime Supermarket, Sheng Siong, U-Stars Supermarket and Cold Storage.
