As part of the U-Save rebates component under the GST voucher scheme, U-Save rebates are meant to provide a helping hand for households to cover their monthly expenses particularly the utility bills and/or other household expenses. The Ministry said that U-Save is equivalent to 3-4 months worth of utility bills for 1- and 2- room households and about 1-2 months of utility bills for 3- and 4- room households.

According to MOF, the total amount of U-Save rebates set aside for eligible Singaporeans in 2019 alone amounts to $300 million.
