- In January 2023, every Singaporean household can claim $300 in CDC Vouchers. This is part of the enhanced support under the Assurance Package to help cushion the impact of additional Goods & Services Tax (GST) for Singaporean households and the $1.5 billion Support Package announced in October 2022. The value of the vouchers will be allocated equally (i.e., $150 each) to be spent at participating heartland merchants and hawkers, or at participating supermarkets. Singaporean Households have until 31 December 2023 to claim and spend their CDC Vouchers 2023.
What are the key benefits of signing up?
With the roll-out of the CDC Vouchers Scheme, participating merchants and hawkers can expect the following:
No Commissions or fees
No need to count physical vouchers

I was approached by individuals claiming to be Ambassadors for the CDC Vouchers Scheme. How can I verify that they are authorised personnel?
To assist merchants in the registration of interests and onboarding process, IMDA's Digital Ambassadors and CDC Ambassadors are deployed island-wide. The IMDA's Digital Ambassadors can be identified by the uniform and button badge that they will be wearing during deployment and can be identified by the official lanyard and button badge during deployment as shown below.

All participating merchants and hawkers will be featured on go.gov.sg/cdcvouchersmerchants so residents can conveniently search for shops nearest to them. You are required to prominently display the CDC Voucher decal at their stall / shop front for visibility to customers.
