What is the Central Provident Fund (CPF)?

The Central Provident Fund (CPF) is a comprehensive social security system that enables working Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents to set aside funds for retirement. It also addresses healthcare, homeownership, family protection and asset enhancement.

Working Singaporeans and their employers make monthly contributions to the CPF and these contributions go into three accounts:

Ordinary Account - the savings can be used to buy a home, pay for CPF insurance, investment, and education.

Special Account - for old age and investment in retirement-related financial products.

Medisave Account - the savings can be used for hospitalization expenses and approved medical insurance.
