CPF Nomination SchemeCPF Nomination Scheme<p>A CPF nomination provides CPF members with the option to specify who will receive their CPF savings, and how much each nominee should receive, upon their demise.</p><p>You should make a CPF nomination if you want to distribute your CPF savings according to your wishes when you pass on. Without a nomination, your CPF savings will be distributed by the Public Trustee’s Office (PTO) to the legally entitled beneficiaries (who are usually family members and next-of-kin) under the Intestate Succession Act or the Inheritance Certificate (for Muslims). The PTO charges a fee for the distribution of your un-nominated CPF savings. You can visit <a href="https://pto.mlaw.gov.sg/" target="_blank">pto.mlaw.gov.sg</a> for more information.</p><p>You can <a href="https://www.cpf.gov.sg/eSvc/Web/Schemes/MakeCpfNomination/Home">make a nomination online</a> using your SingPass via <em>my cpf </em>Online Services.
