About National Silver Academy (NSA)
NSA is a network of post-secondary education institutions and community-based organisations that offer learning opportunities for seniors with short courses covering both life-skills as well as work-skills. Seniors (both Singaporeans and PRs) aged 50 years & above can attend short courses without the need to sit for exam. For courses run by community-based organisations, the final fee payable by seniors takes into account the support given by the government to community-based organisations to develop and offer the short courses. SkillsFuture Credit can be used on top of existing government course subsidies to pay for approved skills-related courses under the NSA.
What is SkillsFuture Credit (SFC)
SFC is intended to encourage individuals to take ownership of their skills development and lifelong learning. Since 2016, all Singaporeans aged 25 & above will receive an opening credit of S$500.

You can check your available amount of SFC via https://sfc.myskillsfuture.gov.sg/claim using your Singpass.
