The Ministry of Finance announced on Friday (Jan 1) that over 800,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive the next instalment of the GST Voucher - Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebates in January.
The rebate will help those living in 1- and 2-room HDB flats to offset on average about three to four months of utilities bills every year.
For those living in 3- to 4-room HDB flats, the rebate will help to offset about 1 to 2 months of utilities bills on average.
The GST Voucher - U-Save rebate, distributed every quarter, is part of the permanent GST Voucher scheme designed to help lower- and middle-income Singaporean households with their living expenses.
Eligible Singaporean households will each receive a GST Voucher - U-Save of up to $65, depending on their HDB flat type in January.
