Can you tell me about the Workfare Income Supplement? How much can I get and what is the criteria?
You can find the information in this FAQ. It is applicable to an employee who earn less than $1,700 a month and live in a property with an annual value less than $11,000. The amount of the supplement is calculated on a complicated formula and is subject to a maximum of $1,050 for a person age 35 to a maximum of $2,800 for person at age 60. This is the maximum, so that actual amount paid to you may be much lower. Self-employed people at low incomes are also eligible for the supplement.
Like many schemes in Singapore, you have to read a complicated table and apply many criteria to arrive at an amount - that is really quite small.
