DecideDo I need to withdraw my CPF savings at 55 years old?<p>The withdrawal of your CPF savings is optional. If you do not withdraw at 55 years old, you can do so anytime later. </p><p>In addition, you need not take out the full amount at one go.

You can withdraw the remaining $3,000 (if available), when you need the monies. </p>Withdrawals of CPF savings from 5515421542
DecideWhat are the benefits if I do not withdraw my CPF savings at 55 years old?<p> <strong>a) Earn attractive interest!</strong></p><p>Your CPF savings can continue to grow with the attractive interest earned in your accounts, if you choose not to withdraw at 55 years old. Your CPF accounts currently earn up to 5% interest per year<sup>1</sup>. Members with lower CPF balances can earn up to 6% interest per year<sup>2</sup>.</p><p> <span style="font-size:0.9em;"><sup>1 </sup>Currently, your CPF savings in the Ordinary Account earn a guaranteed interest rate of 2.5% per year, while savings in the Special, Medisave, and Retirement Accounts earn interest rates of 4% per year. The first $60,000 of your combined CPF balances, of which up to $20,000 from your Ordinary Account, earns an extra 1% interest per year. Combined balances refer to the total balances in your Ordinary, Special, Medisave and Retirement Accounts, including the annuity premiums for CPF LIFE less any payouts made.</span></p><p> <span style="font-size:0.9em;"><sup>2</sup>To grow your retirement savings faster, an additional extra interest of 1% per year will be given on the first $30,000 of your CPF balances (for members aged 55 and above) to enhance the retirement savings of CPF members. This is on top of the existing 1% extra interest on the first $60,000 of combined CPF balances.​</span></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 for your housing payments after age 55, you may apply to reserve some Ordinary Account savings for this purpose before they are transferred to your Retirement Account. However, this means the retirement sum set aside in your Retirement Account will also be lower.</p>Withdrawals of CPF savings from 5515551555
DecideHow about the CPF used for investments and education?<p>If you have set aside your Full Retirement Sum or Basic Retirement Sum with sufficient CPF property charge/pledge, you can withdraw your investments under the CPF Investment Schemes (CPFIS) and Special Discounted Shares (SDS) Scheme, and waive the repayment of CPF savings used for education.</p><p>Otherwise, you will need to top up your Retirement Account to meet the requirement before you can do so.</p>Withdrawals of CPF savings from 5515451545
