950,000 HDB Households to benefit from GST Voucher – U-Save Rebates and GSTV – S&CC rebates (third quarterly tranche) in October 202230 Sep 2022
Total of $720 million in U-Save and S&CC rebates for households in FY2022
About 950,000 Singaporean households living in HDB flats will receive their third quarterly GSTV – U-Save and GSTV – S&CC rebates in October 2022. These rebates are part of the permanent GST Voucher (GSTV) scheme and Household Support Package (HSP) announced at Budget 2022, and will provide continuing help to defray the GST and other living expenses of lower- to middle-income Singaporean households.
2 Eligible households will receive GSTV – S&CC rebates to offset between 1.5 and 3.5 months of their S&CC each year. The rebates are disbursed in April, July, October, and January.
3 In FY2022, eligible households will receive double their regular U-Save. This amounts to about 8 to 10 months’ worth of utility bills for the average household living in 1- and 2-room HDB flats, and about 4 to 6 months’ worth of utility bills for the average household living in 3- and 4-room HDB flats.
4 In addition to the GSTV – U-Save and S&CC rebates for eligible households, each Singaporean household has also received a one-off $100 Household Utilities Credit (HUC) by September 2022. The HUC is part of the $1.5 billion package announced in June 2022 to help Singaporeans cope with higher inflation.
5 The GSTV – U-Save rebates that households will receive in FY2022 are summarised in the table below.
