930,000 HDB Households to Receive GST Voucher – U-Save in April 201902 Apr 2019
About 930,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive the next instalment of the GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) in April 2019.
2 U-Save is one of three components under the permanent GST Voucher scheme. 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, eligible Singaporean households are expected to benefit from U-Save rebates amounting to $300 million.
3 In April 2019, eligible Singaporean households will each receive GST Voucher – U-Save of up to $100, depending on their HDB flat type (see Table 1).

|1- and 2-Room||$100||$100||$100||$100
Note: Households whose members own more than one property are not eligible for the GST Voucher – U-Save.
4 Annually, 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. Those living in 3- and 4-room HDB flats receive support equivalent to about one to two months of their utilities bills.
