Citizens who are Eligible to Receive Assurance Package Seniors’ Bonus and Have Received Payout

06 Nov 2023

Parliamentary Question by Ms Mariam Jaafar:

To ask the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance (a) how many seniors eligible to receive the Assurance Package Seniors' Bonus have not received the payout; and (b) what is being done to ensure that such seniors receive this payout.

Parliamentary Reply by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Mr Lawrence Wong:

All eligible seniors, numbering over 800 thousand, have received the AP Seniors’ Bonus and the 2023 COL Seniors’ Bonus in February 2023 and June 2023 respectively.

Seniors who have not received the Seniors’ Bonus are those who are ineligible due to not meeting one of the criteria, like Assessable Income or owning multiple properties.

If Ms Mariam knows of residents whose information may not have been updated, please bring them to the attention of MOF.
