I worked as both an employee as well as a self-employed person (SEP) in the work year. When will I receive my Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) for the work year?
You will receive monthly Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) payments based on your employee income if you meet the WIS eligibility criteria for the work year (WY).
If you are also an eligible dual status worker (DSW) who has worked concurrently as an SEP and employee in the year, you may receive additional WIS if your combined employment and net trade income results in a higher WIS payment. You will receive the additional WIS payment after you have declared your income and made the required MediSave contributions.
You will receive WIS once a year for work done as an SEP in the preceding year. The earliest payment for SEPs/DSWs for a particular WY will be on 30 April WY+1*.
*Payment via PayNow NRIC-linked bank account or bank crediting will be credited by end of the month while payment via GovCash will be on the 3rd of the following month.
