About 950,000 Singapore HDB households will receive their quarterly GST Voucher (GSTV) – U-Save rebates in January 2022.
They would have received a special payment amounting to an additional 50 per cent of their regular GSTV – U-Save this 2021 financial year, credited in April and July 2021.
The regular U-Save and U-Save special payment will amount to S$460 million in total U-Save rebates this financial year.
This is part of the S$900 million household support package announced at Budget 2021, to provide additional support to families during this period of uncertainty.

The average household living in three and four-room HDB flats would have received rebates equivalent to about one-and-a-half to three months of their utility bills.
