The GST Voucher – U-Save rebate forms one of three components under the permanent GST Voucher scheme. The U-Save rebate helps HDB households offset part of their utilities bills, and serves to lower overall household expenses. It is distributed every quarter and expected to cost $190 million annually.
MOF said, in January 2017 eligible Singaporean households will each receive a GST Voucher – U-Save of up to $65 – the same rebate given previously on July and October last year -, depending on their HDB flat type (see Table below).
