Around 840,000 Singaporean HDB households can expect to receive $86 million worth of Service & Conservancy Charges (S&CC) rebates in 2016.
The S&CC rebate was announced during Budget 2016 to provide additional support to households.
In total, each eligible Singaporean household will receive one to three months of S&CC rebate, depending on their HDB flat type. Eligible households would have received a letter in April with more details of the S&CC rebate.
The rebate will be disbursed over the months of May, July, and October as follows:
|HDB Flat Type||2016 S&CC Rebate (no. of months)|
|May 2016||July 2016||October 2016||Total for 2016|
|1- and 2-room||1||1||1||3|
|3- and 4-room||1||0.5||0.5||2|
The S&CC rebate will be used to offset a household’s S&CC payment directly. For households who pay their S&CC through GIRO, their Town Councils will arrange with the banks on the S&CC payments to take the rebates into account.
For enquiries on their S&CC payment and account status, residents can contact their respective Town Councils. Residents can also contact the Enquiries Line 1800-866-3078 (Mondays to Fridays, 8.30am to 5pm), or email sccrebates[at]mailbox.hdb.gov.sg regarding their household’s S&CC rebate eligibility.
