Over 800,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive $45 million worth of GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebate in April 2015.
The GST Voucher – U-Save forms one component of the permanent GST Voucher scheme, designed to help lower- and middle-income Singaporean households with their living expenses. The U-Save component is distributed every quarter.
In April 2015, eligible Singaporean households will each receive a GST Voucher – U-Save of up to $65, depending on their HDB flat type (see Table below).
