Remember the day you received your first paycheck at the end of the month and took your parents out for a nice meal to celebrate? Your first working CPF contributions were the​n deposited into your CPF accounts, and you started saving for your future! 

 

But #DidYouKnow that your CPF contribution and allocation rates are adjusted at various milestones to reflect your changing needs?

Age 35 and below


At the start of your career, your CPF contributions will amount to 37% of your monthly wages, with 17% contributed by your employer and 20% contributed by yourself. A large portion of this, 23% of your wages to be specific, goes towards your Ordinary Account (OA), which can also be used for your first home purchase in future.


Above 35 to 55

If you are above 35 to 55, you’ll see that there is a gradual shift in allocation of your contributions from your OA to your Special Account (SA) and MediSave Account (MA). Between 50 and 55 years old, your SA and MA contributions will amount to 11.5% and 10.5% of your monthly wages respectively. These savings serve to form the foundation of your retirement and healthcare needs in old age.

 

Employee's age (years) Total contributions for monthly wages > $750 Allocation rates from 1 Jan 2016 (for monthly wages > $750)
Ordinary Account (% of wage) Special Account (% of wage) MediSave Account (% of wage)
Above 35 to 45 37 21 7 9
Above 45 to 50 19 8 10
Above 50 to 55 15 11.5 10.5

Above 55 to 65
 

Towards the later part of your working life, the percentage of your total monthly wages received in CPF contribution is reduced from 37% to 16.5%, with 9% contributed by your employer and 7.5% contributed by yourself if you are above 60 to 65. With this, you can continue to remain competitive in the workforce. 

 

Since it is highly likely for your home to be fully paid for and your retirement sum to be set aside in your Retirement Account (RA) by then, less of your contributions will be allocated to your OA and SA, i.e. you will continue to save 10.5% of your wages in your MA.

 

Employee's age (years) Total contributions for monthly wages > $750 Allocation rates from 1 Jan 2016 (for monthly wages > $750)
Ordinary Account (% of wage) Special Account (% of wage) MediSave Account (% of wage)
Above 55 to 60 26 12 3.5 10.5
Above 60 to 65 16.5 3.5 2.5 10.5

Above 65



If you decide to continue working after 65, your CPF contributions will be capped at 12.5% of your ​monthly wages, with 7.5% contributed by your employer and 5% contributed by yourself. Only 1% of your wages will be contributed to your OA and SA respectively. 10.5% will continue to go towards your MA to maintain the Basic Healthcare Sum (BHS)1 for any medical expenses you may incur in old age. Once the BHS has been met, the remaining contributions will be allocated to your RA.2

 

Employee's age (years) Total contributions for monthly wages > $750 Allocation rates from 1 Jan 2016 (for monthly wages > $750)
Ordinary Account (% of wage) Special Account (% of wage) MediSave Account (% of wage)
Above 65 12.5 1 1 10.5
