ABOUT 800,000 Singaporean HDB households can expect to receive around S$80 million worth of service & conservancy charges (S&CC) rebate in 2015.

In total, each eligible Singaporean household will receive one to three months of S&CC rebate, depending on HDB flat type.

The rebate will be disbursed over the months of April, July, and October, with one- and two-room HDB flats getting three months; three- and four-room ones getting two months; five-room flats getting 1.5 months; and executive/multi-generation ones getting one month of S&CC rebate.

Eligible households will receive a letter in April with more details, said the Ministry of Finance on Wednesday.

The S&CC rebate was announced during Budget 2015 to help households cope with increases in the cost of living.
