Are CPF contributions payable on Long Service Award (LSA)?

CPF contributions are payable on cash award for long service award (LSA).

CPF contributions are exempted if the cash award is payable to employees with at least 5 years' service and every subsequent period of not less than 5 years' service, i.e. 5,10,15 and so on, and the cash award does not exceed the employee’s Ordinary Wages (OW) for the month in which it is given. If the LSA exceeds the OW, CPF is payable on the amount in excess of the OW.

If the employee has no OW payable other than the LSA for that month, CPF contribution is payable on the LSA.
