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 your CPF savings to be distributed according to your wishes. If you do not make a CPF nomination, your CPF savings will be transferred to the Public Trustee’s Office (PTO) for distribution to your family members under the Intestate Succession Act or the Inheritance Certificate (for Muslims). The PTO charges the beneficiaries an administration fee for the distribution of your CPF savings.</p> <p> </p>TrueTrueTrueOthers;#
