SINGAPORE: OP-ED – ST EDITORIAL: End abuse of public help schemes – The Straits Times


End abuse of public help schemes


Everyone loves government largesse, perhaps none more so than fraudsters.
SkillsFuture is a generous package of measures to help workers reskill in the face of job disruption.
With its full implementation, the spending on continuing education and training was estimated to rise to an average of over $1 billion a year from 2015 to 2020.
Criminals leapt at the chance to profit from this generosity and succeeded in siphoning nearly $40 million from SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG), the biggest case of a government agency being defrauded.
