About Credit Counselling Singapore

Credit Counselling Singapore (CCS) is proud to be a community-based partner organisation providing learning opportunities for young seniors aged 50 years and above. We conduct courses on managing “everyday” money effectively, being financially self-reliant in retirement and maintaining mental health.

About the National Silver Academy (NSA)

The National Silver Academy (NSA) is a network of post-secondary education institutions (PSEIs) (i.e. ITE, polytechnics, universities and arts institutions) and community-based organisations (CBOs) that offer learning opportunities that are subsidised for seniors. Seniors and PRs aged 50 years and above can look forward to attending short courses and bite sized courses that are exam free.

For courses run by community-based organisations, the final fee payable by seniors (both Singaporeans and PRs) takes into account the support given by the government to community-based organisations to develop and offer the short courses.
