About 950,000 Singaporean households living in HDB flats will receive GST Voucher (GSTV) – U-Save and Service and Conservancy Charges (S&CC) rebates in January 2023. These rebates are part of the permanent GST Voucher (GSTV) scheme and the Assurance Package (AP) for GST, to help defray GST and other living expenses for lower- to middle-income Singaporean households. The rebates are disbursed in April, July, October, and January each year, and this is the fourth quarterly tranche for FY2022.
2 Eligible households will receive GSTV – S&CC rebates to offset between 1.5 and 3.5 months of their S&CC each year. In FY2022, eligible households receive double their regular U-Save rebates. This amounts to about 8 to 10 months’ worth of utility bills for the average household living in 1- and 2-room HDB flats, and about 4 to 6 months’ worth of utility bills for the average household living in 3- and 4-room HDB flats.
3 In addition to the GSTV – U-Save and S&CC rebates for eligible households, every Singaporean household would also have received a one-off $100 Household Utilities Credit (HUC) by September 2022. The HUC is part of the $1.5 billion package announced in June 2022 to help Singaporeans cope with higher inflation.
4 On top off the GSTV – U-Save and S&CC rebates in January 2023, eligible Singaporeans will receive the following benefits in the upcoming months of January and February 2023:
