About S&CC Rebate

3 The S&CC Rebate has been paid out annually by the Government since 2013, to help directly offset HDB households’ S&CC payments. Households that pay their S&CC through GIRO do not need to take any action as their respective Town Council will make arrangements directly with their banks. 

Eligibility Matters 

4 Residents with specific queries on their household’s S&CC payment or account status can contact their respective Town Council, while residents with queries relating to S&CC Rebate eligibility can call 1800-866-3078 (Mondays to Fridays, 8.30am to 5pm), or email
