What is SkillsFuture Credit (SFC)?
SkillsFuture Credit consists of credits which Singapore Citizens can use to pay for out-of-pocket course fees for attending skills-related SkillsFuture courses. The credits can be used on top of existing course fee subsidies provided by the Government.
All Singaporeans aged 25 or above will receive SkillsFuture Credit of $500 from January 2016. This will not expire and you may accumulate your credit for a range of eligible courses on MySkillsFuture. On 1 October 2020, the Government provided a one-off SkillsFuture Credit Top-up of $500 for all eligible Singaporeans aged 25 or above by 31 December 2020. Singaporeans aged 40 to 60 by 31 December 2020 also received an Additional SkillsFuture Credit (Mid-Career Support) of $500. These new SkillsFuture Credit provisions will expire on 31 December 2025.
The SkillsFuture Credit scheme is part of a range of programmes and initiatives introduced by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) to support individuals in their skills development and lifelong learning. As the SkillsFuture Credit is intended to encourage all Singaporeans to learn for life and to take personal ownership of their lifelong learning journey, credits are not transferable between individuals.
