The new initiatives include a free online Financial Health Check tool and enhanced guidance services at key government touchpoints such as HDB and CPF Board to help Singaporeans make the right financial decisions at key milestones in their lives. A series of roadshows will be organised in the heartlands where Singaporeans can learn how to improve their financial health.
Launched by Minister for Education and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) board member Ong Ye Kung today, the new MoneySense campaign encourages the public to proactively find out if their finances are in good shape. It also aims to build a strong foundation in financial skills in young Singaporeans studying in the polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education (ITE).
Young Singaporeans studying in the polytechnics and ITE will also be able to participate in activations at their institutions, and take the Financial Health Check specially customised for students. These youth-focused activities will support the full roll-out of the financial education curriculum to all polytechnic and ITE Year 1 students in 2019.
