About 930,000 Singaporean households living in HDB flats will get the next instalment of the GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebate this month, revealed the Ministry of Finance (MOF) on Monday (1 July). For this year, $300 million worth of U-Save rebates is set to be given out.

A part of the permanent GST Voucher scheme, the U-Save rebate is distributed every three months to help households offset part of their utilities bills.

Those living in one- and two-room flats will receive $100, while those in three-room flats will get $90.

Homeowners living in four-room flats, on the other hand, will receive $80 and those in five-room flats $70.

Meanwhile, households whose members own more than one property are not qualified to receive the U-Save rebate.

Under the open electricity market, qualified households will continue to get U-Save rebates regardless of their electricity provider.

“Annually, the GST Voucher – U-Save has enabled households in one- and two-room HDB flats to receive support which is equivalent to about three to four months of their utilities bills on average,” said the ministry.

“Those living in three- and four-room HDB flats receive support equivalent to about one to two months of their utilities bills.”
