On Friday (31 Mar), MOF announced the timeline in which eligible households will receive their U-Save and S&CC rebates for FY2023.

The rebates will be disbursed across three tranches over the 2023 financial year, in the following months:

  • April 2023
  • July 2023
  • October 2023
  • January 2024

U-Save disbursals this year have been ‘enhanced’ by the Cost-Of-Living Special Payment and Assurance Package. Eligible households will thus receive double their regular amount.

In total, eligible households will receive between S$440 and S$760 in U-save rebates for the 2023 financial year.

MOF estimates that this will help offset about eight to 10 months’ worth of utility bills for those staying in 1- and 2-room flats.

As for those staying in 3- and 4-room flats, MOF estimates that the payouts will be equivalent to four to six months’ worth of utility bills.

Up to 3.5 months’ S&CC rebates for eligible households

Eligible households will also receive S&CC rebates in the same months as their U-Save payouts.

These payouts will similarly vary depending on the type of HDB flat the receiving household is staying in.

Adding up the four tranches, eligible households will receive up to 3.5 months’ worth of S&CC rebates for the 2023 financial year.
