About 930,000 households in Housing Board flats will receive Service & Conservancy Charges (S&CC) rebates from next month to March 2020.
The S&CC rebates, which were announced during this year's Budget to help households with expenses, will amount to $132 million this year.
According to the Ministry of Finance, each eligible Singaporean household will receive 1.5 to 3.5 months of S&CC rebates, depending on their HDB flat type.
Those living in one- and two-room flats will receive one month's rebate in April, July and October this year, and half a month's in January 2020, making a total of 3.5 months of rebates.
Those in three- and four-room flats can expect one month's rebate in April, and half a month's rebate in July and October this year as well as in January 2020.
Those in five-room flats will receive a total of two months of rebates, which will be disbursed equally over the four months of April, July, October and January.
Households in executive and multi-generational flats will receive half a month's rebate each in April, July, and October.
Eligible households will receive a letter by the end of this month with more details of the rebates.
Those who pay their S&CC charges through Giro will have the necessary arrangements with their banks made by their respective town councils .
The S&CC rebates, which will be used to offset the household charges payment directly, have been paid out annually by the Government since 2013.
