3 Introduction Remember three key points: 1 Make an informed decision on your desired payouts. 2 Join CPF LIFE to enjoy lifelong monthly payouts. In the lead up to your retirement years, you may have questions about how your CPF will provide for your retirement needs. When you reach the milestone age of 55 in your CPF journey, two events take place: A is created to set aside your retirement sum, which will provide you with a monthly income in old age. You can withdraw a portion of your CPF savings if you so choose. While withdrawal is an option open to you, you should consider stretching the value of your CPF savings by keeping it in your accounts so that there will be more retirement savings in your golden years. Apart from the attractive interest rates earned in your CPF accounts, you can make regular top-ups to your CPF to boost your retirement savings. Let your total CPF savings count towards a proportion of your overall retirement provisions. Singaporeans are living longer. It is an increasing concern that present retirement funds may not be enough to last throughout retirement. About half of Singaporeans who are 65 years old today are expected to live beyond the age of 85 and a third of them will live beyond 90 years old. Having an income throughout old age is more important than ever. To ensure you have a monthly income for as long as you live, you can use your savings to join the CPF Lifelong Income For the Elderly (CPF LIFE) scheme. 3 TOP UP your and your loved ones retirement savings. 2

4 How much monthly payouts do you need during retirement? When you turn 55 years old, we will create your and transfer some of your CPF savings from your Special and/or Ordinary into this account to form your retirement sum. You can buy a CPF LIFE annuity using your retirement sum to receive lifelong monthly payouts from your payout eligibility age, which is currently at age 65. Depending on your desired CPF LIFE monthly payout and your CPF balances, you can choose from a range of payout options that best suit your needs in retirement. Your monthly payout 1 for life from 65 savings required at 55 If you own a property and choose to pledge your property. If you do not own a property or choose not to pledge your property. If you wish to put more savings in CPF LIFE. $660 - $720 Basic Sum (BRS) $80,500 $1,220 - $1,320 Full Sum (FRS) $161,000 The FRS is 2 x BRS. $1,770 - $1,920 Enhanced Sum (ERS) 2 $241,500 The ERS is 3 x BRS. To help you plan early for retirement, the Basic Sum will be made known to you ahead of time. For each successive cohort of members turning 55, payouts need to be higher to account for long term infl ation and rising standards of living. Correspondingly, the Basic Sum to be set aside has to increase.

5 OA + SA+ MA How much can you withdraw at 55? To calculate how much you can withdraw, you need to fi rst work out your X and Y as shown below. $43,500 X X = Ordinary + Special + Medisave savings above $43,500 Ordinary Special Medisave Y Y = Medisave savings up to the Medisave Minimum Sum of $43,500 X You can withdraw What does this mean? X < $5,000 X You can withdraw all of your X. Y stays in your Medisave. $5,000 < X < $166,000 $5,000 If you have savings above the Basic Sum of $80,500, you can choose to withdraw the amount by pledging your property. You can withdraw $5,000 from your Ordinary and Special s. The remainder will form your retirement sum in your. Y stays in your Medisave. X > $166,000 X - $161,000 - Medisave Minimum Sum shortfall If you have savings above the Basic Sum of $80,500, you can choose to withdraw the amount by pledging your property. You can withdraw $5,000 and any excess CPF savings after setting aside the Full Sum of $161,000 and the current Medisave Minimum Sum of $43,500. Y stays in your Medisave. 4

6 Here s an example on how much a typical CPF member can withdraw. Ms Anita has just turned 55. A is created on her 55 th birthday. Ms Anita s X is between $5,000 and $166,000. X = $45,000 + $55,000 = $100,000 Ms Anita can choose to withdraw $5,000 of her CPF savings from her Ordinary and Special s. The remaining amount of $95,000 will form her retirement sum in her. If she owns a property, she can choose to set aside her Basic Sum of $80,500 in her to receive a monthly basic payout of $660 to $720 from age 65 for life. She can then withdraw $5,000 from her Ordinary and Special s, and an additional $14,500 from her by pledging her property. 5

7 How to withdraw? You will receive a letter from us a few months before your 55 th birthday. You can apply to withdraw your CPF once you receive the letter or any time later. Ways to apply for withdrawal Option 1: Online application Apply online at You will need your SingPass and a OCBC, POSB or UOB account. Option 2: Form application Send us your application using the form (RWD-55) enclosed with the letter. Complete the application form and mail to: CPF Board Withdrawals Department 79 Robinson Road Singapore

8 Earn Attractive Interest Should you continue to save with CPF? Withdrawing your CPF savings once you turn 55 years old is not compulsory. Tip 1 You can still make a withdrawal later! If you do not withdraw your CPF savings at 55 years old, you can still make a withdrawal at a later date. Also, you do not have to take out the full amount at one go. You can make a partial withdrawal and save the remaining money for your next withdrawal. For example, if you can withdraw $5,000, you can choose to withdraw $2,000 which would leave you $3,000 for your next withdrawal. Tip 2 Earn attractive interest! Your CPF savings can continue to grow with the attractive interest earned in your accounts, if you choose not to make a withdrawal at 55 years old. Your CPF accounts currently earn up to 5% interest per year 3. Members with lower CPF balances can earn up to 6% interest per year 4. Age 55 and above (NEW) CPF Balances Interest Rate 5 First $30,000 6% Next $30,000 5% Amounts above $60,000 4% Tip 3 You can still use your Ordinary savings to pay your housing loan! If you need to continue using your Ordinary for your housing payments after age 55, you may apply to set aside some Ordinary savings for this purpose before they are transferred to your. However, this means you will set aside a lower retirement sum. 3 Currently, your CPF savings in the Ordinary earn a guaranteed interest rate of 2.5% per year, while savings in the Special, Medisave and s earn guaranteed interest rates of 4% per year. The fi rst $60,000 of your combined CPF balances, of which up to $20,000 from your Ordinary, earns an extra 1% interest per year. Combined balances refer to the total balances in your Ordinary, Special, Medisave and s, including the annuity premiums for CPF LIFE less any payouts made. 4 With effect from January 2016, an additional extra interest of 1% per year will be given on the fi rst $30,000 of your combined CPF balances (for members aged 55 and above). This is on top of the existing 1% extra interest on the fi rst $60,000 of balance. 5 Based on prevailing interest rates on balances in Special, Medisave and s. Balances in Ordinary can earn up to 4.5% for members aged 55 and above. 7

9 Golden Years Should you join CPF LIFE? With CPF LIFE, you will have the assurance of receiving monthly payouts from your payout eligibility age for as long as you live.

Choose your CPF LIFE plan We will invite you to choose your CPF LIFE plan nearer to your payout eligibility age. You can choose between: CPF LIFE Standard Plan; or CPF LIFE Basic Plan Choose the plan that best meets your retirement needs. Each CPF LIFE plan provides a different combination of trade-offs between the amount of monthly payouts that you will receive and the bequest that you will leave for your benefi ciaries. If you do not choose a plan before your 70 th birthday, we will automatically place you on the CPF LIFE Standard Plan. The CPF LIFE annuity premium will be deducted from your at the point of policy issuance. 8

If you choose the CPF LIFE Basic Plan We will deduct a portion of your savings for the annuity premium at the point of policy issuance. The actual amount deducted will depend on your age and gender. We will inform you on the amount to be deducted when your policy is issued. The rest of your savings will stay in your. You will receive monthly payouts from your until one month before you reach 90 years old. Once you reach 90 years old, you will continue to receive monthly payouts from the annuity fund for as long as you live.

12 Leaving CPF LIFE The CPF LIFE payouts will stop upon death and your benefi ciaries will receive a bequest (if any is due). Otherwise, once you have joined CPF LIFE, you can only leave the scheme for the following reasons: You have a medical condition which causes you: To be permanently unfi t for any employment; To have 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 because you are receiving a monthly pension/annuity payout. Both the CPF LIFE Standard Plan and the CPF LIFE Basic Plan have a refund feature. If you decide to leave your plan, you will receive a refund of the savings used to join CPF LIFE minus any monthly payouts received. The refund is your unused annuity premium. You may not receive a refund if we have already paid out all your savings used to join CPF LIFE. 11

13 Top Up For Tax Savings Top up for tax savings and earn higher interest If you can, it s well worth adding more to your CPF. Top up to boost your or your loved ones Special or savings. Topping up to the Enhanced Sum (available from January 2016), a sum set at three times the Basic Sum, gives you the opportunity to enjoy a higher monthly payout. Under the Sum Topping-Up Scheme, you can even get tax relief 8 for cash top-ups. The tax relief is up to $7,000 per year if you top up for yourself and an extra $7,000 per year if you top up for your family members. What are the criteria for cash and CPF top-ups? You can do a cash top-up to your and your loved ones CPF accounts, up to the current Full Sum. You can also transfer your Ordinary savings to your loved ones CPF accounts. You may do so after meeting the Full Sum you need to set aside when you turn 55 with your net balances in the Ordinary, Special and s including amounts withdrawn for investments. Amount of top-up that can be received For recipients below 55 years old Current Full Sum Net Special Balance Amounts withdrawn from Special under the CPF Investment Scheme (CPFIS-SA) For recipients 55 years old and above Current Full Sum Savings 9 8 Terms and conditions apply 9 Excludes interest earned since 55 years old, any government grants and monies withdrawn. 12

14 From 2016, you will have additional fl exibility to transfer your CPF savings above the Basic Sum to your spouse s CPF account. With this, both you and your spouse can enjoy the benefi ts of the extra interest paid on the fi rst $60,000 of combined CPF savings. Refer to the example below. Before spousal transfer At age 55, Mrs Tan has $35,000 in her. At age 65, her balance will have grown to about $59,000 which will provide her with monthly payouts for about 20 years. At age 55, Mr Tan has $100,500 in his. At age 65, Mr Tan will be placed on CPF LIFE with a balance of about $156,000. After spousal transfer Mrs Tan now has $55,000 in her at age 55. At age 65, Mrs Tan will be placed on CPF LIFE with a balance of about $90,000. Transfers $20,000 to Mrs Tan s CPF account Mr Tan now has $80,500 in his at age 55. At age 65, Mr Tan will be placed on CPF LIFE with a balance of about $127,000. After the spousal transfer, Mr and Mrs Tan would enjoy an additional $2,000 in interest which would help them boost their retirement payouts. Mrs Tan will now enjoy higher monthly payouts for life.

15 Beyond 55 CPF beyond 55 If you decide to continue working, you and your employer will still contribute to your CPF. However, do note that the contributions to your Ordinary will reduce, and this may affect how you manage your housing loan payments. So, try to pay off your housing loan by 55 years old!

You can use your savings (excludes top-up monies, interest earned, and any government grants received) above your Basic Sum for your housing needs. 10 An employee will move to the next age group in the month after his 35 th, 45 th, 50 th, 55 th, 60 th and 65 th birthday. 11 Increases in the contribution rates, applicable from January 2016, are shown in bold. 12 It may then be used to buy an additional CPF LIFE annuity when you reach your payout eligibility age. 14

16 Insurance premiums You can continue to use your Ordinary savings for insurance premiums under the Home Protection Scheme (HPS)/ Dependants Protection Scheme (DPS), after setting aside your retirement sum at age 55. Sale of property If you sell your property, you need to refund the CPF that was used to buy it and the accrued interest 13. If you had also withdrawn from your by pledging your property, you need to refund the pledge amount as well. The amount refunded will be used to build up your retirement savings. The balance of the housing refunds will then be paid to you, after setting aside the current Medisave Minimum Sum. I n f o r m a t i o n B o x If you own an HDB fl at, you can generate income from your fl at for your retirement needs.

Full Sum (FRS) The retirement sum to set aside at age 55 to receive a monthly CPF LIFE payout of about $1,220 - $1,320 from payout eligibility age. It is set at two times the Basic Sum (i.e. $161,000 for members who turn 55 between July 2015 and December 2016).

This is the age at which CPF members are eligible to receive CPF payouts. It is currently at age 65 years old for members who are born in 1954 or later. Payout Start Age (PSA) This is the age at which CPF members have chosen to start their payouts. For members under the CPF LIFE scheme, they can choose to start their payouts anytime between age 65 to 70. For each year deferred, monthly payouts will permanently increase by 6 to 7 per cent for members under the CPF LIFE scheme. Other Terms Annuity An annuity is an insurance product which provides you with a monthly income for the rest of your life. Annuity Fund/ Lifelong Income Fund The annuity fund, also known as the Lifelong Income Fund, consists of the annuity premium, the interest earned on the annuity premium and the extra interest earned by members on the CPF LIFE Standard Plan. Annuity Premium The annuity premium is the amount of your savings committed to CPF LIFE. Assessable Income (AI) Your 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. 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). 21

23 Glossary Term Definition Other Terms Annual Value (AV) The AV of your property refers to how much rent we estimate you could receive each year if you rented it out. 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 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 Beneficiaries Beneficiaries are the people who you have nominated to receive your CPF savings after your death. If a CPF nomination is not made, upon death, your CPF savings will be distributed by the Public Trustee in accordance to the intestacy laws of Singapore, which ensures that the welfare of your dependants are provided for.
