Lower income families now get to receive one extra blue Yusof Ishak
Now you can dance in circles because, well, money makes the world go round.
This was the GST Voucher you (if eligible) have been receiving:
This is the GST Voucher you will now receive:
Simi GST Voucher?
The GST Voucher is an exclusive helping hand the G is lending to lower income families. It eases the poor in paying the same GST everybody pays when they buy Xiao Bai Cai or Mama Lemon at NTUC.
It also comes in two other forms — Medisave to help with your meds and U-Save to help with the PUB bills.
Look here to see who receives this added benefit:
FYI: Annual value of a household = monthly rent the property can fetch x 12 months.
Why you should dance in circles

Or even better — your mum leaves an extra $10 for you to go on a Popular spree but you spot Gongcha on the way and make a guilt-free detour. *wink*
GST Vouchers will cost the G an extra $70 million a year and will benefit about 1.4 million low income households.
Ah, our good ol’ Singaporean government. They may not be perfect but they do take fairly good care of us, don’t you think?
