Income supplement for eligible low wage workers. A scheme that encourages eligible workers to work and build up their CPF savings for their retirement, housing and healthcare needs.
From 1 Jan 2017, eligible low wage workers will receive higher Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) payouts to be paid monthly.
You will qualify for WIS if you:
- are a Singapore Citizen;
- are 35 years old or above on 31 December of the work year (all persons with disabilities would qualify for WIS); and
- earn a gross monthly income of not more than $2,000 for the month worked.
