Exceeded CPF FRS and 2 questions.

Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Reader:
May i get your advise on this matter. Am going 52, meet Full Retirement Sum (FRS) with excess. So OA, SA and MA all met limit.

I read your blog said its good to do Voluntary Contribution (VC) to CPF.




Questions:

1. If i do a VC, where or which account will the money go to since all 3 accounts had hit limit?

2. Can i withdraw the VC that i put in with interest together with my excess above the FRS at 55?

Thanks for your advise in advance.







AK:
Please remember the CPF Annual Contribution Limit (i.e. $37,740 which is 17x of CPF monthly salary ceiling of $6,000 x 37%).

How much Voluntary Contribution you can do depends on how much Mandatory Contribution (from employment) is made in a year. 

Of course, if you are retired or unemployed, then, there is no mandatory contribution.

In your case, Voluntary Contributions will flow into your OA and SA. Nothing goes to your MA.




You want to read this blog and refer to the Allocation Table provided:

At 55, the FRS will go to your newly created CPF-RA. The FRS money will be from your CPF-SA and, if that is insufficient, your CPF-OA. 

Anything in excess of the FRS in the CPF-SA and/or CPF-OA, you can withdraw when you turn 55.

Is it true that voluntary contributions cannot be withdrawn?

Hi Lalu,

As long as we meet the FRS at age 55, the balance in our OA and SA can be withdrawn.

You might want to read my other blogs on the CPF as well. :)
