How will I receive the Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) payment?
You will receive the cash portion of Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) via your PayNow-NRIC-linked bank account. To check your PayNow-NRIC-linked bank account details, please approach your bank.
If you do not have a PayNow-NRIC-linked bank account with a PayNow-GIRO-participating local or foreign bank in Singapore but have provided your DBS/POSB, OCBC or UOB bank account to the Government previously, you will receive your cash portion of WIS via bank transfer. You can check and update your bank account details registered with us by logging in to our e-services with your Singpass.
Otherwise, the amount will be credited to you via GovCash. GovCash is a payment mode that allows Singaporeans to receive their benefits from Government agencies more quickly and conveniently. You are encouraged to link your NRIC to PayNow with a PayNow-GIRO-participating local or foreign bank in Singapore to receive your benefits earlier*.
*If you have linked your NRIC number to your bank account after the 16th of the month or submitted your bank account details after the 14th of the month, your updates will only be effective in the following month.
