With rising costs and increased learning needs, financing our children's education is no longer a simple walk in the park. Discuss with other parents about how they are managing their finances to cope with their expenses.

Is it a good idea not to spend from this account... and even top it up to the max (36k) that the bank will pay 2% interest on?
What actually will happen to the balance?
"When your child turns 13, the unspent balance goes to their Post Secondary Education Account (PSEA), making it easier to pay education fees." (OCBC website)
36k X 2% a year for 13 years...
1 36,000.00 102% 36,720.00
2 36,720.00 102% 37,454.40
3 37,454.40 102% 38,203.49
4 38,203.49 102% 38,967.56
5 38,967.56 102% 39,746.91
6 39,746.91 102% 40,541.85
7 40,541.85 102% 41,352.68
8 41,352.68 102% 42,179.74
9 42,179.74 102% 43,023.33
10 43,023.33 102% 43,883.80
11 43,883.80 102% 44,761.48
12 44,761.48 102% 45,656.70
13 45,656.70 102% 46,569.84

Is this correct? Any advice please...?
Thank you!
