With effect from 19 May 2017, SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) will revise the SkillsFuture Credit (SFC) claims processes to reduce the risk of abuse. Under the new process, while individuals will continue to submit SFC claims, all SFC payments by SSG will be made to training providers instead of individuals. Training providers will collect nett fees from individuals, after offsetting the SFC that will be used.
Under this payment mode, individuals are allowed to make claims up to 60 days before their start of the course till the day of course commencement with effect from 21 Apr 2017. This window period is sufficient for individuals to make their claims to facilitate earlier course registration.
When making claims, you should inform your Training Provider on the intention to utilise your SkillsFuture Credit and request for the relevant amount to be offset against the qualifying course fees. You must then submit the claim via the SkillsFuture Credit Portal to pay the relevant credit amount to the Training Provider for your registered course.
Individuals can also visit any of the Workforce Singapore (WSG) Career Centres (click here for locations) to collect forms for manual claim submissions.
