About 800,000 Singaporean HDB households can expect to receive Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebates in July 2011. The rebates are part of the five-year GST Offset Package announced in 2007. The final tranche of U-Save rebates will be paid in January 2012.
A Singaporean household may receive up to $90 in U-Save rebates in July 2011, depending on HDB flat type (the payment schedule of U-Save rebates for 2011 can be found in Annex A):
|HDB flat type|
3. The U-Save rebates in July are the third tranche for 2011. The rebates were enhanced in the 2011 Government Budget, and the enhancements will more than offset the annual increase in utilities bills due to the higher electricity and gas tariffs announced for the coming quarter.
The total amount of U-Save rebates received by Singaporean households in 2011 will in fact offset more than 4 months of utilities bills for families living in 1- and 2-room flats; those living in all other HDB flats will benefit from at least 1 month’s offset of their utilities bills.
