In a press release on Tuesday (2 April), the Ministry of Finance (MOF) shared that about 930,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive the next instalment of the GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) in April 2019 of up to $100, depending on their HDB flat type.
U-Save is one of three components under the permanent GST Voucher scheme.
It said that the U-Save rebates which are disbursed every three months, help HDB households offset part of their utilities bills, and therefore lower their overall household expenses.
In 2019, MOT noted that eligible Singaporean households are expected to benefit from U-Save rebates amounting to $300 million.
According to the ministry, the GST Voucher – U-Save has enabled households in 1- and 2-room HDB flats to receive support which is equivalent to about three to four months of their utilities bills on average annually.
Meanwhile, those living in 3- and 4-room HDB flats receive support equivalent to about one to two months of their utilities bills.
