July 6, 2020 - A Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government spokesman said the Cash Payout Scheme today started effecting payment in batches to eligible people who have registered electronically through banks on or before June 30.

The first batch of about 3.15 million people have received payment through their specified bank accounts today. The remainder will receive payment in the coming one to two days.

The payment will be shown on the bank book or statement of the registrants with wordings such as “HKSARG$10000”, “HKSARG” or “HKG”, depending on the setting of relevant bank. The banks will also send notifications through SMS, email or post to inform the registrants within three business days that the sum has been deposited in their specified bank accounts.

People who register electronically through banks on or after July 1 will receive payment about one week after registration.

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