800,000 HDB households to get $77m in services & conservancy charges rebates in 2013

SINGAPORE - Around 800,000 Singaporean HDB households can expect to receive $77 million worth of Service & Conservancy Charges (S&CC) rebates in 2013. These S&CC rebates were announced during Budget 2013 to help households cope with increases in the cost of living.

In total, each eligible Singaporean household will receive 1 to 3 months of S&CC rebates, depending on HDB flat type. Eligible households will receive a letter in April with more details of the S&CC rebates they will be getting.

The rebates will be disbursed over the months of April, July and October as follows:

The S&CC rebates will be used to offset a household’s S&CC directly. For households who pay their S&CC through GIRO or any electronic mode of payment, Town Councils will arrange with
the banks on the S&CC payments to take the rebates into account.

For enquiries on S&CC payment and account status, residents can contact their respective Town Councils. Residents can also contact the enquiries line 1800 - 8663078 (Mondays to Fridays, 8.30am to 5pm) regarding their household's S&CC rebate eligibility.
