In compliance with the regulations under the Private Education Act 2009, all students’
fees must be insured under the Fee Protection Scheme (FPS). All Stamford students
are covered by way of Insurance Protection as stipulated by the Council for Private
Education. The Fee Protection Scheme serves to protect the course fees that are paid
to Private Education Institutes in Singapore. Fees are only considered protected once
they are paid to Stamford. Stamford then activates the insurance policy with the
appointed provider. The provider will then issue a certificate to the family indicating
the amount covered and the period of coverage. Stamford has appointed LONPAC
Insurance Bhd to be the FPS provider for our students.
Stamford American International School Ltd Pte has a medical insurance scheme in
place for all students. The student’s parent/guardian is encouraged to seek advice on
whether more comprehensive insurance cover is required or desired.
This scheme provides a basic annual coverage limit of not less than $20,000 per
student in B1 ward in government and restructured hospitals and up to overall
maximum limit per policy year, with 24 hours coverage in Singapore and overseas
(if the student is involved in the school-related activities) throughout the course
duration as required by the Council for Private Education (CPE) under the EduTrust
certification scheme. Stamford has appointed Sime Darby Insurance Brokers
(Singapore) Pte Ltd. as the medical insurance provider for our students.
