SINGAPORE - About 840,000 eligible Singaporean HDB households will receive the next instalment of the GST Voucher - Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebate in July, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) said on Friday (July 1).

Those living in one-and two-room flats will receive a rebate of $65, while those living in three- and four-room flats will receive $60 and $55 respectively.

The annual rebates, which range from $180 to $260, can be used to offset about three to four months of utilities bills on average, the MOF said.

The GST Voucher scheme is given in three parts - the cash component, Medisave and Utilities-Save (U-Save). It aims to help lower income households with their expenses.

The U-Save component is distributed every quarter.
