The. Temporary Relief Fund is now available to apply online!
Before you start, make sure to prepare some documents as proof of income (eg. your payslip or CPF statement) to prove your income before the COVID19 period.
Also, ensure you have a bank account registered with PayNow enabled, as the $500 payout will be via PayNow. For applicants with an invalid PayNow, payment will be via crossed cheque in 2-3 weeks.
The Temporary Relief Fund is for:
- Singapore Citizens aged 16 years and above
- With a gross monthly household income of <$10,000 or a gross monthly per capita income of <$3,100 prior to loss of job or income
- Not a current beneficiary of ComCare assistance of TRF (you can only apply once)
