Withdrawals of CPF savings from 55Withdrawals of CPF savings from 55<p> <b>How much can I withdraw?</b></p> <p>From age 55, you can withdraw up to $5,000 from your Special and Ordinary Accounts, or your CPF savings after you have set aside your Full Retirement Sum in your Retirement Account, whichever is higher. Your Full Retirement Sum can be set aside fully with cash, or with cash (i.e. at least the Basic Retirement Sum) and property. </p><p>If you were born in 1958 or after, you also have the option to withdraw up to 20% of the savings in your Retirement Account from your payout eligibility age (65 years old). This includes the first $5,000 that can be withdrawn from age 55. </p><p>You do not have to withdraw all your withdrawable savings at one go. You can withdraw, whether in full or partially, as frequently as you like, and at any time after turning 55. If you do not have an immediate need, it is better to leave it in your CPF accounts to earn attractive interest of up to 6% per year, instead of a bank account earning low interest. These savings can be treated as a “rainy day fund” which you can draw upon any time when needed. With PayNow, the savings you withdraw will reach your bank account almost instantaneously. </p>TrueTrueTrueOthers;#

Retirement Account savings currently earn up to 5% per annum.</p><p>The interest rates cited above include an extra 1% interest paid on the first $60,000<sup>1</sup> of a member’s combined balances (with up to $20,000 from the Ordinary Account).</p><p>From 55 years old, CPF members will also earn an additional 1% extra interest on the first $30,000<sup>1</sup> of their combined balances (with up to $20,000 from the Ordinary Account).

If you are on CPF LIFE, this <a href="https://www.cpf.gov.sg/members/FAQ/schemes/Retirement/CPF-LIFE/FAQDetails?category=Retirement&group=CPF%20LIFE&folderid=11663&ajfaqid=2186386">extra interest earned will be paid to your Retirement Account or the CPF LIFE Annuity Fund</a> . </p><p> <sup>1 </sup>The priority of the accounts that make up the $60,000 (for extra 1% interest) and $30,000 (for additional 1% extra interest)is as follows: </p><p>1<sup>st </sup>: Retirement Account, including balances used to pay for the annuity premium under CPF LIFE </p><p>2<sup>nd </sup>: Ordinary Account, up to $20,000 </p><p>3<sup>rd </sup>: Special Account</p><p>4<sup>th </sup>: MediSave Account</p><p> <strong>b) Use the OA savings to pay your housing loan</strong></p><p>If you need to continue using your Ordinary Account savings for your housing payments, you may apply to reserve some Ordinary Account savings for this purpose before they are transferred to your Retirement Account. However, this may mean that the retirement sum set aside in your Retirement Account will be lower. As a result, your monthly payouts may also be lower.</p>Withdrawals of CPF savings from 5515551555
