SINGAPORE - Around 800,000 Singaporean HDB households can expect to receive about $80 million worth of Service & Conservancy Charges (S&CC) rebates in 2014.
These S&CC rebates were announced during Budget 2014 to help households cope with increases in cost of living.
In total, each eligible Singaporean household will receive one to three 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.
The rebates will be disbursed over the months of April, July and October.
The S&CC rebates will be used to offset a household's S&CC payment 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 their 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), or email firstname.lastname@example.org regarding their household's S&CC rebate eligibility.
