The form to use will depend on the approved institution you are in. Please consult the approved institution you are studying in on which form to use.

Establish a Standing Order with MOE

The Standing Order (SO) is a one-time application and the SO instructions will apply to all future withdrawals until the SO is terminated or replaced, regardless of which approved institution you attend.

Please download the PSEA Standing Order form and submit the completed application form to your institution.

Please download the PSEA Standing Order Termination form if you wish to terminate the current SO instruction with MOE, and submit the completed application form to the institution you are studying in. If you are no longer studying in an approved institution, please submit the termination form to MOE.

You will receive a letter informing you of the outcome of your standing order application/ termination within 3 weeks after you have/ your institution has submitted the form to us.

Ad Hoc Withdrawal Application

The ad hoc withdrawal application is an application for a one-time withdrawal for a specific purpose. You will have to submit the ad hoc withdrawal application forms for each specific withdrawal.

Please download the PSEA Ad Hoc Withdrawal form and submit the completed application form to your respective institutions.


2. Loans And Approved Financing Schemes

An account holder can use his PSEA funds to repay the outstanding principal loan and interest charged to the Government education loans (i.e. Tuition Fee Loan, Study Loan, and Overseas Student Programme Loan) and/ or approved financing schemes (i.e. loans under the CPF Education Scheme) taken for his studies in the Autonomous Universities, Polytechnics, ITE, and Art Institutions.

For repayment of Government education loans and approved financing schemes using PSEA funds, the account holder must have already left the institution as those who are still studying in the institution can use their PSEA funds for payment of approved fees and charges. For more details, you may refer to the FAQs on loan repayment.

Loan Repayment Application

To withdraw your PSEA funds for the repayment of the Government loans and approved financing schemes, you can submit your application online here using your SingPass. A parent / legal guardian is required to submit the application on behalf of an account holder who is below 21 years old.
