Other bank account holders will need to complete a hardcopy GIRO application form and submit the original signed form to your child’s school. Child Development Account (CDA), joint account with 2 signatories and corporate accounts are not accepted.

Things to note about your application

If you are not the existing GIRO account holder with MOE, the existing account holder has to terminate the GIRO arrangement before you can proceed. They can do so by submitting the original signed GIRO termination form to the child's school.

If you have submitted multiple applications for the same student before the cut off, we will only process your latest application. 

We will update you on your application outcome via email during the following periods:
