Around 880,000 Singaporean HDB households can expect to receive $120 million worth of Service & Conservancy Charges (S&CC) rebates in FY2017.
The S&CC rebate was announced during Budget 2017 to provide additional support to households.
In total, each eligible Singaporean household will receive 1.5 to 3.5 months of S&CC rebate, depending on their HDB flat type.
Eligible households will receive a letter from end-March with more details of the S&CC rebate. The rebate will be disbursed over the months of April 2017, July 2017, October 2017 and January 2018 as follows:
|HDB Flat Type||FY2017 S&CC Rebate (no. of months)|
|October 2017||January 2018||Total for FY2017|
|1- and 2-room||1||1||1||0.5||3.5|
|3- and 4-room||1||0.5||0.5||0.5||2.5|
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 make the necessary arrangements with their banks.
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.
