The deadline for claiming the universal cash handout has expired, with over 23.48 million individuals having claimed their NT$6,000 cash.

The National Treasury Administration, Ministry of Finance, indicates that, in cooperation with relevant departments, the overall operation of the universal cash handout has been running smoothly. As of the deadline on October 31, 2023, over 23.48 million individuals have claimed their NT$6,000 cash, accounting for 99.7% of the originally estimated number. The implementation has been successful, demonstrating a high level of public approval for the universal cash handout policy.

The NTA further indicates that among the over 23.48 million individuals who have claimed, the highest proportion, at 40.0%, was through Remittance Registration, with over 9.38 million people. Following that, ATM Cash Withdrawal accounted for 24.3%, with more than 5.7 million individuals. Approximately 4.25 million people, or 18.1%, received the NT$6,000 cash through Direct Remittance, while over 4.08 million individuals, making up 17.4%, received their NT$6,000 cash through Post Office Cash Withdrawal.

The NTA would like to remind the public that while the general public's deadline for claiming the universal cash handout has passed, nationals born domestically between October 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023, who possess a birth certificate and whose birth mother or birth father qualifies, are eligible to claim their NT$6,000 cash by January 31, 2024.

In addition, cases submitted by the public through the information service hotline "1988" before the end of working hours on October 31, as well as phone inquiries received by the NTA on October 30 and October 31, and cases submitted through voice and text messages after 6:30 PM on October 31, will all be recorded and processed by the information service hotline "1988." The hotline will promptly contact individuals for any additional required documents. After confirming eligibility, individuals will be notified. Given the recent high volume of cases, the public is kindly requested to be patient while awaiting further instructions.

The NTA would like to further remind the public that the registration website for the universal cash handout (https://6000.gov.tw) and ATM Cash Withdrawal services are no longer available, in accordance with the expiration of the claiming period. However, the “Universal Cash Handout” advocacy website (https://pro.6000.gov.tw) and the information service hotline "1988" will continue to provide services until January 31, 2024. If individuals have any inquiries related to claiming for a newborn, they can call the information service hotline "1988" or use the "Online Customer Service" option on the “Universal Cash Handout” advocacy website, which offers intelligent customer service and connects to live chat support.

The NTA would like to reiterate that the government will not send text messages or emails to notify individuals about receiving money or logging in, nor will they make phone calls requesting ATM or online banking transactions. It is crucial for the public to remain vigilant and not fall for these scams in order to prevent personal information theft or fraud. If you encounter suspicious websites or messages, please call the Anti-Fraud Hotline at 165 immediately to prevent fraudulent incidents.
