Post-Secondary Education Account

The PSEA scheme started in the year 2007 with the intention to encourage parents to save for their children's post-secondary education by maintaining a Post-Secondary Education Account (PSEA) for each eligible child.

This is part of the Government's efforts to encourage every Singapore Citizen to complete his/her post-secondary education. It also underscores the Government's commitment to support families in investing in the future education of their children, and to prepare them for the economy of the future. PSEA is not a bank account.


The PSEA is administered by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and is opened to all eligible Singapore Citizens. Students may use their own or their siblings' PSEA funds to pay for course fees.
