About 800,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive S$135 million worth of GST Voucher - Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebates in January 2014, said the Ministry of Finance.

The GST Voucher - U-Save is the household component of the permanent GST Voucher scheme that was introduced in Budget 2012. 

It provides a direct offset on utilities expenses for households, and is paid out four times a year. 

Eligible households will each receive a GST Voucher - U-Save of up to S$195, depending on their flat type.

This amount includes the final tranche of the GST Voucher - U-Save Special Payment, which is a one-off extra GST Voucher payment announced in Budget 2013. No sign-up is required for the rebates.

For more information on the GST Voucher - U-Save, the public can call SP Services at 6671-7117, or emailspservices@singaporepower.com.sg
