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:

HDB Flat
Number of Months of 2013 S&CC Rebates
(given on a per household basis)
April 2013
July 2013
October 2013
for 2013
1.0 1.0 3.0
1.0 1.0 1.0 3.0
1.0 0.5 0.5 2.0
1.0 0.5 0.5 2.0
0.5 0.5 0.5 1.5
Executive 0.5 0.5 - 1.0

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.
