How do I receive my cash benefit via GovCash?

There are three options which you can choose to receive your cash benefit via GovCash:

Option 1: Use LifeSG to transfer to PayNow-NRIC linked bank account 

If you have an existing bank account, you can link your account to PayNow-NRIC with your bank. Thereafter, login to LifeSG mobile app (LifeSG) using your Singpass to transfer your GovCash to your PayNow-NRIC linked bank account.

The LifeSG app can be downloaded from the Apple App store or Google Play Store.


Option 2: Use LifeSG for Scan & Pay

You can use LifeSG to scan participating merchant’s QR code for purchases or scan your friend/family’s QR code to transfer your GovCash to them. You can only make purchases at merchants that accept PayNow/NETS QR code using the LifeSG app. You can look out for the PayNow/NETS logo on the SG QR label that is displayed by the merchants.


Option 3: Withdraw from OCBC ATMs

You can withdraw your cash benefit at OCBC ATMs islandwide. You just need to enter:

a) Your unique 8-digit Payment Reference Number (PRN)

b) Your NRIC number; and

c) pass the facial verification


You do not need to have an OCBC bank account to use this service.


You will receive the PRN via a letter and your Singpass app (if any) or SMS after your cash benefits has been paid. You can also log into the e-services with your Singpass to view your PRN by selecting “GovCash PRN” that is found at the menu on the left. This will only be available after the payment has been made.

You may refer to the step-by-step guide for detailed instructions on ways you can utilise your GovCash benefits.
