SINGAPORE - Around 840,000 HDB households can expect to receive $86 million worth of Service & Conservancy Charges (S&CC) rebates, the Ministry of Finance said on Friday (April 29).

In total, each eligible Singaporean household will receive one to three months of S&CC rebate, depending on their HDB flat type. Eligible households would have received a letter in April with more details of the S&CC rebate.

The rebate was announced during Budget 2016 to provide additional support to households. It will be used to offset a household's S&CC payment directly.

 

For households who pay their S&CC through Giro, their town councils will arrange with the banks on the S&CC payments to take the rebates into account.

For enquiries on their S&CC payment and account status, residents can contact their respective town councils.

They can also call 1800-866-3078 (Mondays to Fridays, 8.30am to 5pm) or e-mail sccrebates@mailbox.hdb.gov.sg to check on their household's S&CC rebate eligibility.
