About 800,000 Singaporean HDB households will receive GST Voucher - Utilities-Save (U-Save) rebates worth a total of $135 million next month. 

The GST Voucher-U-Save is the household component of the permanent GST Voucher scheme that was introduced in Budget 2012. 

It provides a direct offset on utilities expenses for households, and is paid out four times a year. 

The Finance Ministry says in January, each HDB Singaporean household will receive a voucher of up to $195, depending on their flat type. 

This amount includes the final tranche of the GST Voucher - U-Save Special Payment, which is a one-off extra GST Voucher payment announced in Budget 2013. 

No sign-up is required for the rebates.
