Ministry of Finance (MOF) has announced on Monday (2 April) that about 900,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive the next installment of the GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebate in April.
The rebate is part of the permanent GST Voucher scheme and is distributed every three months, which helps HDB households offset part of their utilities bills and serves to lower overall household expenses.
The ministry stated that the eligible households will each receive a GST Voucher – U-Save of up to S$95 in April depending on their HDB flat type.
It said that the annual rebate has enabled households in one- and two-room Housing Board flats to receive support equivalent to three to four months of their utilities bills on average. For those living in three- and four-room flats, the rebate provides them with support equivalent to one to two months of utilities bills.
