What happens to unused savings in the CDA?

The unused balance in your child's CDA will be transferred to his or her Post-Secondary Education Account (PSEA) in the year your child turns 13 years of age. You may continue to contribute to the PSEA until your child turns 18 years of age and receive the Government's matching contributions subject to the combined CDA/PSEA matching contribution cap of up to $6,000 each for the first and second child, $12,000 each for the third and fourth child and $18,000 each for the fifth and subsequent child. The funds in the PSEA can be used to pay fees for post-secondary education in Singapore for your child and his or her siblings. The PSEA is under the purview of the Ministry of Education (MOE). More information on the PSEA can be found at MOE's website at: http://www.moe.gov.sg.

For children born during the period 2006-2007, the trustees will receive an option letter at their official address (as maintained by the Ministry of Home Affairs) in November in the year the child turns 6 years of age to choose to retain the balance in the CDA or to withdraw the amount in cash.

what is so special about children born in 2006-2007 where the parents get the option of withdrawing in cash?

has this option been withdrawn for children born after 2007?

this PSEA to me is really bu#$sh!T with so many restrictions on withdrawal.

You have the option to withdraw all in cash, or bring it over to the PSEA. MCYS will write to you on the child's 6th year to inform you all this. CDA a/c will be closed anyway when the child reaches his/her 7th year.

But if you haven't finish the govt one-to-one matching amount, then it is not advisable to withdraw.

They did send the option letter when child is near 6 or 7 yrs.

We choose $$$, then they'll transfer the amount to the parents account.

revised policy is CDA extended to child's 12th year.

does this mean we will receive the cash withdrawal option when the child reaches 12?

No interest paid on the amount lock in the child account?
Is it a bank account or special arrangement fund?

Special account where you cannot withdraw cash but can make deduction say on school fees.
Interest pathetic.
For deduction of school fees I think there is an admin charge. Do check with the school.

One more thing to highlight in case people here don't know

end of line for unused PSEA is to....

child's CPF OA (where else dry.gif )

so the only chance to withdraw in cash is when closing that CDA account.

thats why I want to know if that option is still available when child turns 12

has this option been withdrawn for children born after 2007?

this PSEA to me is really bu#$sh!T with so many restrictions on withdrawal.

Its because those children born in 2006-2007 are now 6 years old, and its time for their parents to decide what to do with the CDA a/c.

Those born after 2007 will get their letter when they are in their 6th year.
