How Do I Use It?

To use your SFC credit for the eligible courses, you can apply by selecting the option via an on-screen prompt at the end of your registration via MyIAL.

Please note the submission period for your SFC claim via MySkillsFuture needs to be within 60 days before the course start date (date inclusive). If your course start date is more than 60 days from the date of SFC application, the SSG-SFC portal would reject your application. In this case, you would need to pay the full course fees at the end of your course application.



If you're making partial course fee payment (SFC + cash), please pay the balance at the payment page (via eNets/credit card (VISA or MasterCard)) by 11.59pm (Singapore Time) on the same day of registration or else your SFC application will be voided.

Applicants eligible for the additional SkillsFuture Credit (Mid-Career Support) of $500 available from 1 Oct 2020 can only use it to pay for IAL WSQ ACLP or WSQ DDDLP course fees. SFC is not applicable to CPD courses.
