Over 800,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebates in October 2015.
Those living in 1- to 2-room HDB flats will be able to offset about 3 to 4 months of utilities bills on average with their regular GST Voucher – U-Save. Those living in 3- to 4-room HDB flats can offset about 1 to 2 months of utilities bills on average.
