CPS payment disbursed to over 4.3 million registrants

     The Government announced that the Cash Payout Scheme has disbursed payment to about 1.24 million eligible people today (July 7). A cumulative total of over 4.3 million eligible registrants who registered electronically with banks on or before June 30 have received payment via their selected personal bank accounts. 

     Furthermore, people registering electronically through banks from July 1 will start receiving payment from tomorrow (July 8) onwards.

     Members of the public who have not yet registered are encouraged to register through Internet banking or banks' websites so as to receive payment in the most secure and convenient way. Eligible registrants will receive payment about one week after registration.

     Registration for the Scheme is open until December 31, 2021.

     The public may visit the website of the Scheme (www.cashpayout.gov.hk) or call 18 2020 for detailed information on the Scheme.
