The SkillsFuture Credit are credits which Singapore Citizens (SCs) can use to pay for out-of-pocket course fees for attending work-skills related courses. The credits can be used on top of existing course fee subsidies provided by the Government.

Under the SkillsFuture Credit, Singaporeans aged 25 years and above will receive an initial credit of $500 which can be used to pay for course fees, apart from government subsidies. Through the month of January 2016, eligible Singaporeans will receive their SkillsFuture Credit account activation letter. They will then be able to access their account to use their credit for courses that commence on or after 1 January 2016.
