The Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebate, which Singaporean households will receive as GST vouchers in April 2018, will help to offset their utilities bills. These vouchers will be disbursed every 3 months.
Households in one-and two-room Housing Board flats will receive $95, those in three-room flats will get $85, those in four-room flats will receive $75, those in five-room flats, $65, and those in executive or multi-generation flats, $55. However, if any one of the members own more than one property, then the household will not be eligible for this rebate.
When the carbon tax t is implemented from 2019, eligible households will receive additional $20 a year for three years, from 2019 to 2021. The additional rebate amount will help to cover the expected increase in electricity and gas expenses for households.
