Child Development Account (CDA)

How you can pay for Cord Blood Banking through the Child Development Account (CDA)*.

At Cordlife, you can pay for our cord blood banking packages through your child’s CDA.

The CDA comprises of two benefits - CDA First Step Grant and Government Dollar-for-Dollar Matching.

The CDA First Step Grant is a new grant of $3,000 for eligible Singaporean children born from 24 March 2016. The amount will be deposited into the CDA account 3 weeks after the account is opened.

Parents who continue to save beyond this initial amount will enjoy the Government Dollar-for-Dollar Matching as follows:

Child Order CDA Benefits Total CDA Benefits
CDA First Step Dollar-for-Dollar Matching
$3,000 Up to $3,000 Up to $6,000
Up to $6,000 Up to $9,000
3rd & 4th
Up to $9,000 Up to $12,000
5th Child
and higher
Up to $15,000 Up to $18,000

The amount from the Government Dollar-for-Dollar Matching will be deposited into your child’s CDA the following month.

For example, if you deposit $500 into the CDA in January 2016, the Government will deposit the matching amount of $500 the following month.

This can be used to fund the initial upfront payment of your cord blood banking package.
