Workfare Income Supplement (WIS)
 

The Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) Scheme was announced during the 2007 Budget Speech as a permanent scheme following the one-off Workfare Bonus Scheme. The objectives of WIS are to supplement the wages and retirement savings of older low-wage workers as well as to encourage them to stay employed.

 

 

In 2010, the WIS Scheme was enhanced by increasing the maximum WIS payment from $2,400 to $2,800, and increasing the qualifying average monthly income ceiling from $1,500 to $1,700 to encourage older low-wage workers to seek and to remain in employment. The Workfare Training Support (WTS) Scheme was also introduced encourage low-wage workers to upgrade their skills through training, so that they can improve their employability and earn more.

 

 

In 2012, changes were made to the WIS payment frequency. Low-wage employees will receive their WIS payments quarterly, instead of twice yearly, to help them meet their daily expenses.
