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

CPF contributions are payable on cash award given to your employee in recognition of his long service.

However, to promote loyalty, CPF contributions are not payable on Long Service Award (LSA) that is given to your employee with at least 5 years of service and subsequent LSA for each 5-year period of service with you, up to the amount of your employee’s Ordinary Wages (OW) for the month in which the LSA is paid.

If the LSA exceeds the OW for the month, CPF contributions are payable on the amount in excess of OW. If your employee has no OW payable in that month, CPF contributions are payable on the entire LSA.
