How long does CPF Board take to process my refund application?

Please refer to the table for our service standards for processing refund of CPF contributions:


Normal Processing Time

CPF Contributions Paid in Error

Within one month upon receipt of the necessary information*

CPF Contributions Paid on Conditional Wages Repayable

CPF Contributions Paid in Excess of the Additional Wage (AW) ceiling

*This excludes the two working days that banks require to credit the monies to your bank account.  

As we are currently experiencing high volume of applications, a longer processing time may be expected for your application(s). Once your application(s) have been successfully processed, we will notify you on the details of the refund.
