Over 800,000 Singaporean households in Housing Board flats will receive $45 million worth of GST vouchers to offset utility bills.
The GST Voucher - U-Save is part of the permanent GST Voucher scheme, designed to help lower- and middle-income households cope with their living expenses. The U-Save vouchers are distributed quarterly.
In April, eligible Singaporean households will each receive a GST Voucher - USave of up to $65, depending on their HDB flat type.
The assistance is substantial. For instance, those living in 1- to 2-room HDB flats can offset about 3 to 4 months of utilities bills on average with their regular GST Voucher - U-Save.
Three- and four-rooomers can use their vouchers to pay for about 1 to 2 months of utilities bills on average.
For more information on the GST Voucher - U-Save, members of the public can call SP Services at 6671 7117, or email email@example.com.
