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. You can <a href="">make a nomination online</a> by logging in with your SingPass via <em>my cpf</em> Online Services.</p><p>To find out more on making a nomination online, you can <a href="" target="_blank">view a video on “Your guide to making a CPF Online Nomination”.</a></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="" target="_blank"></a> for more information.</p> TrueTrueTrueForms;#Others;#
