What happens if the CPF Board finds out that the CPF nomination was made whilst the member lacked capacity?

If the Board is informed of any facts or circumstances which may affect the validity of the CPF nomination and has evidence and supporting documents to ascertain the fact that the member lacked capacity at the time of making the CPF nomination, the Board will invalidate the CPF nomination made by such a member.

Anyone, who is of the view that the CPF nomination is invalid on the grounds that the member lacked capacity at the time the said CPF nomination was made, could also apply to Court to set aside the nomination.

If the CPF Board deems that the CPF nomination was made whilst the member lacked capacity within the meaning of section 4 of the Mental Capacity Act 2008, the Board will invalidate the nomination. The previous CPF nomination (if any) made by the member would remain valid (assuming the member did not lack capacity when he made the previous CPF nomination). The member's CPF savings would be distributed in accordance with the intention of the member in his previous valid CPF nomination. If there is no previous valid CPF nomination, the CPF savings would be paid to the Public Trustee for distribution in accordance with intestacy laws.
