880,000 HDB Households to Receive GST Voucher – U-Save Rebate in October 2017

 

 

     About 880,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive the next instalment of the GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebate in October 2017.

 

  1. The U-Save rebate is 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 three months. The U-Save rebate is expected to cost $265 million over four quarters, starting from July 2017.

 

  1. Annually, the permanent GST Voucher – U-Save rebate has enabled households in 1- and 2-room HDB flats to receive support which is equivalent to about 3 to 4 months of their utilities bills on average. Those living in 3- and 4-room HDB flats receive support equivalent to about 1 to 2 months of their utilities bills.

 

  1. In October 2017, eligible Singaporean households will each receive a GST Voucher – U-Save of up to $95, depending on their HDB flat type (see Table 1).
