I work for an overseas employer outside Singapore and have to return to Singapore for personal reasons during the COVID-19 period. Are CPF contributions payable while I work remotely in Singapore?

If you are returning to Singapore for personal reasons and will be working remotely in Singapore for your overseas employer during the Stay Home Notice (SHN) period or unable to return overseas after your personal trip due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, CPF contributions are not payable until 30 June 2021 since this is a temporary work arrangement due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, similar to other employees who are working in Singapore, CPF contributions are payable on wages given to employees who are working remotely in Singapore from 1 July 2021 onwards.

If you choose to continue working remotely in Singapore not due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, and your employer agrees with this work arrangement, CPF contributions are payable on your wages as they are given in respect of your employment in Singapore.
