EH GOT FREEBIE LEH!

Now watch as we Singaporeans immediately turn our heads.

Ah yes, we certainly do love our freebies, especially free money in the form of GST vouchers we have been getting over the years.

We’ve already gotten $100 worth of Community Development Council (CDC) vouchers in 2021…

But from 11 May 2022, another $100 worth of CDC vouchers will be made available to every Singaporean household!

If you’ve yet to claim your 2021 CDC vouchers, you’ll effectively have $200 of CDC vouchers to spend!

For the rest of us, we’ll have another $100 worth of CDC vouchers.

Yes, this is the chicken wing the government gives us while they supposedly take away a whole chicken…

Jokes aside, you must be wondering a few things:

How can you collect the CDC vouchers? What can you use the vouchers on?

Fret not, cos this article will answer all of those burning questions!


TL;DR: Community Development Council (CDC) Vouchers Guide

  • An additional $100 worth of CDC vouchers can be claimed by all Singaporean households from 11 May 2022.
  • There are now two sets of $100 vouchers: CDC Vouchers 2021 and CDC Vouchers 2022.
  • All CDC vouchers can be used up till 31 December 2022.

What Is the CDC Vouchers Scheme?

Source: CDC

The CDC Vouchers Scheme was first launched in June 2020, where vouchers were distributed to households to be redeemed at participating local merchants and hawkers in the heartlands islandwide.

This was an initiative in a bid to help residents with daily expenses and also to boost local businesses which have been impacted by COVID-19.

On 18 October, it was announced that the CDC vouchers will be received in the upcoming months and will be distributed as digital vouchers (e-vouchers).

Although this scheme was initially catered to lower-income households, the CDC voucher eligibility has now extended to all Singaporean households.

That’s right, the current tranche of CDC vouchers will be distributed to every household in Singapore!

Now that the CDC vouchers will be distributed as e-vouchers, the collection process will be slightly different from before, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying your $100!

Your $100 CDC vouchers will come in denominations of $2, $5, and $10, so make sure you plan how you will spend them wisely.

For the new set of CDC vouchers in 2022, you can claim them online from Wednesday 11 May 2022 onwards, and they can be used all the way till 31 December 2022.

If you’ve yet to claim your 2021 CDC vouchers, you can still do so. These are also valid till 31 December 2022.

A Few Things To Note for the CDC Vouchers:

Before you get too excited, there are just a few things to note regarding the CDC vouchers.

  • One household is only entitled to $100 worth of CDC vouchers (two sets), so only one person from each household can redeem the vouchers.
  • Like all vouchers, denominations are fixed. No change will be given if you spend $10 on something worth $9.
  • Vouchers can be shared among members of the same household. Just tap on the “Share My Vouchers” button, and you will be able to generate a link you can send to members of the same household.
  • If you do not have a smartphone to redeem the e-vouchers, you can collect physical vouchers at the nearest community centre.

Above are just some things you need to know about the CDC vouchers. If you have any more questions, feel free to check out the FAQs on CDC’s website.

How Do I Use My CDC Vouchers?

There are currently over 3,000 participating merchants island wide that accept physical vouchers.

Just keep a lookout for the CDC Vouchers decal displayed at the merchant/hawker stall shopfront, and you will know if CDC vouchers are accepted by them!

With the new e-voucher scheme, all you have to do is tap the amount worth of vouchers you would like to use and show the participating merchant the QR code for them to scan.

They will be using a RedeemSG Merchant app to accept the e-vouchers.

Here are some of the types of stores you can expect to utilise your vouchers at:

Types of Merchants
Hawker Centres
Wet Markets
Bakeries
Hardware / Repair Stores
Provision Shops
Minimarts
Pet Shops
Hair Salons
Optical Shops
Fashion Retail Stores
Other heartland shops (e.g. locksmiths, dry cleaning, medical halls etc.)

Where Can I Use My CDC Vouchers At?

As you guys know, Seedly’s a huge advocate of stretching and maximising any dollar we have and what better way to do that than to support your local hawkers and businesses!

Remember the uncle at the mixed vegetable rice stall who always gives you extra ingredients when you order?

Why not give him some extra support with the CDC vouchers your household will be getting!

Running out of food at home? You can even get some groceries from the minimart downstairs!

Everyone is living and/or working in the same neighbourhood. With the CDC helping you save $100 in expenses, you can use the vouchers to help the merchants working in that same neighbourhood.

For those who are feeling adventurous, you could try doing a #nospendweek challenge with these vouchers, where you could get your haircut, buy groceries from neighbourhood minimarts and meals from your favourite hawker centres all covered.
