When will I receive my Workfare Income Supplement (WIS)?
You will receive Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) for every month that you work. The payment will be made two months after the work period. You are encouraged to link your NRIC to PayNow with the participating banks to receive your benefits earlier.
If you do not have a PayNow-NRIC bank account but have provided your bank account number to the Government previously, you will receive your benefits via bank transfer. If you do not have a bank account, the benefits will be credited to you via GovCash. Please see the examples below:
|If you worked in

||1st week of April
||1st week of May

||1st week of the following month (x+3)
You may login to our e-services with your Singpass to check your payment details after the payment has been made to your bank accounts or via GovCash.
If you are an eligible Self-Employed Person (SEP), you will receive WIS once a year for work done in the preceding work year. The earliest payment for SEPs for a particular Work Year (WY) will be in end April of the following work year, provided you have declared your income and contributed to your MediSave by the following WY.
