Parliamentary Question by Mr Kwek Hian Chuan Henry:
To ask the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance whether the Ministry will allow households who are unable to fully utilise their GST U-Save vouchers, to withdraw the balance for supporting their other living expenses.
Parliamentary Reply by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Mr Lawrence Wong:
The GST Voucher (GSTV) – U-Save rebates are designed to offset households’ utilities expenses. Unutilised rebates have no expiry date and can be rolled over to offset future utilities expenses.
The Government has also introduced support measures to help Singaporeans defray other living expenses. These include the CDC Vouchers in January, the Cost-of-Living Special Payment in June, the GSTV – Cash in August and the Assurance Package Cash in December.
