5 Retirement Sum Scheme 1 Introduction to CPF LIFE The Retirement Sum Scheme (formerly known as Minimum Sum Scheme) was introduced in 1987 to help Central Provident Fund Board (CPFB) members set aside enough savings to provide a modest standard of living when they retire. From the savings set aside in their Retirement Account, this scheme provides CPF members with a fixed monthly payout from their payout eligibility age for about 20 years. Your payout eligibility age is the age when you are eligible to start receiving your monthly payouts for retirement. If you were born in 1954 or after, your payout eligibility age is 65 years old. If you were born before 1954, please see Annex A for your payout eligibility age. CPF LIFE As life expectancies (how long, on average, people are likely to live) continue to increase, for Singaporeans who are 65 years old today, about half of them are expected to live beyond 85 years old (another 20 years). A third of them will live beyond 90 years old. Having an income throughout your old age is more important than ever. That is why we have introduced CPF LIFE to provide you with a monthly payout for as long as you live. 4

7 1.3 What are the CPF LIFE plans available? When you join CPF LIFE, you can choose between: the LIFE Standard Plan; or the LIFE Basic Plan. Each LIFE plan provides a different combination of trade-offs between the amount of monthly payouts that you would receive and the bequest that you would leave for your beneficiaries. You can choose the plan that best meets your retirement needs. Plan Types Monthly Payout Bequest LIFE Standard Plan Higher Lower LIFE Basic Plan Lower Higher 6

This same bank account will also be used for payments under the CPF Withdrawal for members 55 years and above, CPF Retirement Sum Scheme, CPF Withdrawal on Medical Grounds, Silver Housing Bonus Scheme and Enhanced Leased Buyback Scheme (if applicable). 16

18 Alternatively, you can submit the application form RSD78A Request to change bank details for members 55 and above by mail. 4.5 Is the CPF LIFE monthly payout fixed? No, we may adjust your monthly payout for the following reasons. Changes in mortality experience. If more people live longer than expected, the monthly payout might be lower, and vice versa. Changes in interest rates. If interest rates are higher than expected, the monthly payout might be higher, and vice versa. Transactions which affect your Retirement Account balance, for example, refund of money made from selling property, top-ups, lump-sum withdrawals and so on. If you had chosen the LIFE Basic Plan, the reduction in any extra interest earned and paid out as the combined balances in your CPF accounts, including the amount committed to CPF LIFE, falls below $60,000. We will inform you two to three months before we make any adjustments to your monthly payout. 17

20 5 CPF LIFE Bonus 5.1 What is CPF LIFE Bonus? CPF LIFE Bonus is a bonus provided by the Government to encourage and help you join CPF LIFE. 5.2 Am I eligible for CPF LIFE Bonus and how much CPF LIFE Bonus can I receive? To be eligible for LIFE Bonus, you need to: Be a Singapore Citizen; Be born between 1958 and 1962; and Be placed on CPF LIFE; or Inform us before your 56 th birthday on your decision to join CPF LIFE. The amount of CPF LIFE Bonus that you can receive depends on your Annual Assessable Income (AI) and the Annual Value (AV) of your home. It will be credited into your Retirement Account if you are a Singapore Citizen with at least $20,000 in your Retirement Account. If you have less than $20,000 in your Retirement Account, your CPF LIFE Bonus will be reduced in proportion to the amount you joined CPF LIFE with. Your AI is based on the assessment year before the year that we issue your CPF LIFE plan. For example, if we issue your CPF LIFE plan in 2015, we will use your AI for assessment year 2014 (that is, your income for 2013). 19

21 The AV we use to decide whether you are eligible for a CPF LIFE Bonus is based on the AV of the property stated as your NRIC address as at 31 December before the year we issue your CPF LIFE plan. (For example, if we issue your CPF LIFE plan in 2015, we will use the 2014 AV of the property stated in your NRIC as of 31 December 2014.) If you join CPF LIFE in 2015, before turning 56, with at least $20,000 in your Retirement Account, the amount of CPF LIFE Bonus you can receive is shown in the table below. Eligibility Criteria Birth Year AI is $27,000 or less and AV is $9,600 or less $3,300 $2,600 AI is $27,000 or less and AV is more than $9,600 and up to $13,000 AI is more than $27,000 and up to $60,000 and AV is $9,600 or less AI is more than $27,000 and up to $60,000 and AV is more than $9,600 and up to $13,000 $2,650 $2,100 $2,650 $2,100 $1,800 $1,450 Note: Actual AV and AI cut-offs are subject to review and may vary depending on the year of enrolment into CPF LIFE. The amount of CPF LIFE Bonus you are eligible for is also based on your age cohort. 20

22 If you join CPF LIFE with less than $20,000 in your Retirement Account, your CPF LIFE Bonus will be reduced in proportion to the amount you used to join CPF LIFE. Example: If you are born in 1960 and join CPF LIFE in 2015 with the following conditions: your Retirement Account balance is $10,000; your AI is $27,000 or less; and your AV is $9,600 or less; your CPF LIFE Bonus will be $1,300. With your AI and AV, your eligible CPF LIFE Bonus is $2,600. However, as you only have $10,000 (not the minimum $20,000 for the full LIFE Bonus) in your Retirement Account, your LIFE Bonus is only $1,300 (reduced in proportion to the amount you used to join CPF LIFE). 21

23 6 Exiting CPF LIFE 6.1 Can I leave CPF LIFE after I have joined? Once you have joined CPF LIFE, you can only leave for the following reasons. You have a medical condition which causes you: - to be permanently unfit for any employment; - to have a severely reduced life expectancy; or - to be terminally ill. You are about to leave / have left Singapore and West Malaysia permanently with no intention of returning for work or to live. You are a Malaysian citizen and have left Singapore permanently to live in West Malaysia. You are fully exempted from setting aside the retirement sum in your Retirement Account because you are receiving a monthly pension / annuity payout. Both the LIFE Standard Plan and the LIFE Basic Plan have a refund feature. This means you will receive a refund of the savings used to join CPF LIFE less any monthly payouts you received before leaving. You may not receive a refund if we have paid out all your savings that you used to join CPF LIFE in monthly payouts. 22

24 6.2 Under CPF LIFE, what happens after my death? The CPF LIFE payout will stop and your beneficiaries will receive a bequest (if any is due). 6.3 Why is the bequest for LIFE Basic Plan and LIFE Standard Plan so different? Under the CPF LIFE Standard Plan, the interest earned on the annuity premium (including extra interest earned on your combined CPF balances) will be paid into the Lifelong Income Fund to provide you with a higher monthly payout. On the other hand, under the LIFE Basic Plan, the remaining Retirement Account savings will continue to earn interest (including extra interest earned on your combined CPF balances) in your Retirement Account. This accounts for the different bequest under LIFE Standard and Basic Plans. 23

25 7 Other questions you may have on CPF LIFE 7.1 Is there a maximum amount that I can commit to CPF LIFE? Yes. The maximum amount that you can commit to CPF LIFE is the current Full Retirement Sum. From 1 January 2016, the maximum amount you can commit to CPF LIFE is the current Enhanced Retirement Sum (a sum set at three times the Basic Retirement Sum). 7.2 Can I pledge my property when I am on CPF LIFE? Yes, the existing CPF rules allow you to pledge your property and at the same time, withdraw your Retirement Account savings above the Basic Retirement Sum (applicable to you) that have not been deducted as annuity premium for CPF LIFE. Your monthly payout will be affected if you choose to pledge your property. 7.3 Is the CPF LIFE monthly payout protected from creditors? Yes. This means that if you owe money to anyone, they cannot claim it from your monthly payouts. 24

26 Annex A: The meaning of terms used in CPF LIFE Annual Assessable Income (AI) Your Annual Assessable Income (AI) refers to your total annual income less approved deductions. To work out your AI, we will use the assessment year before the year that we issue your CPF LIFE plan, as provided by IRAS.

To work out the value of your property, we will use the AV of the property stated as your NRIC address as at 31 December before the year that we issue your CPF LIFE plan, as provided by IRAS. For example, if we issue your CPF LIFE plan in 2015, we will use the 2014 AV of the property stated in your NRIC as of 31 December Annuity Annuity is an insurance product which provides you with a monthly income for the rest of your life. Beneficiaries Beneficiaries are people who you have nominated to receive your CPF savings after your death.
