Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said last week the RM500 would be given to each household with cumulative income below RM3000.
Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Awang Adek Hussin told reporters on Wednesday that the ministry and its agencies were looking into setting up the facilities to disburse the money.
"The distribution of the aid is slated for next year.
"Right now, we are putting in place the mechanisms to identify eligible recipients and how the aid will be distributed.
"Those who are not registered under e-Kasih but qualify to receive the aid may need to fill up a form, which will be made available by the Inland Revenue Board in due time," Awang Adek said after opening the National Tax Seminar 2011 at the Putra World Trade Centre.
