Fee Protection Scheme

The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect students’ fees in the event that a PEI is unable to continue operating due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. The FPS also protects if the PEI fails to pay penalties or return fees to the students arising from judgments made against it by the Singapore courts.

TaF.tc has appointed Lonpac Insurance Bhd as our FPS insurance provider. Click here for a copy of the master certificate. More details about FPS is available at https://ssg.gov.sg/cpe/pei.html
