About 880,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive the next instalment of the GST Voucher – Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebate in April 2017.

Annually, the permanent GST Voucher – U-Save scheme has enabled households in 1- and 2-room HDB flats to receive support which is equivalent to about 3 to 4 months of their utilities bills on average. Those living in 3- and 4-room HDB flats receive support equivalent to about 1 to 2 months of their utilities bills.

The GST Voucher – U-Save rebate forms one of three components under the permanent GST Voucher scheme. The U-Save rebate helps HDB households offset part of their utilities bills, and serves to lower overall household expenses. It is distributed every quarter and expected to cost $190 million annually.

In April 2017, eligible Singaporean households will each receive a GST Voucher – U-Save of up to $65, depending on their HDB flat type (see Table 1 below).

Note: Households whose members own more than one property are not eligible for the GST Voucher – U-Save.

As announced at Budget 2017, there will be an increase of $40 to $120 to the annual GST Voucher – U-Save rebate from July 2017 onwards (see Table 2 below) to help households offset some of the increase in water prices. The increase will be permanent.
