What are the changes to the tax relief cap for cash top-ups?

For cash top-ups made on or after 1 January 2022, you can enjoy annual tax relief of:

  • up to $8,000 (previously $7,000) when you top up to your Special/Retirement Account and/or MediSave Account*; and
  • an additional tax relief of up to $8,000 (previously $7,000) when you top up your loved ones’ Special/Retirement Account and/or MediSave Account.

For example, if you top up $6,000 to your Special/Retirement Account and $2,000 to your MediSave Account, you will enjoy $8,000 in tax relief.
