You can enjoy tax relief of up to $7,000 per calendar year if you are topping up for yourself and additional tax relief of up to $7,000 per calendar year if you are topping up for your parents, parents-in-law, grandparents, grandparents-in-law, spouse and siblings.

FAQs

1. If my recipient passes away, will my top-ups be refunded to me?
Whether the top-ups will be refunded depends on when the cash top-up/CPF transfer was made.

2. If I have the Full Retirement Sum and do not wish to top up to the Enhanced Retirement Sum now, can I just top up as and when I have the money?
For higher payouts, you can top up your Retirement Account up to the Enhanced Retirement Sum, which is three times of the current Basic Retirement Sum. You need not top up the amount in a single transaction and can choose to make the top-ups at any time.

3. Is there any age limit for receiving top-ups?
There is no age limit for receiving top-ups. Recipients below age 55 will receive top-ups to their Special Account, while recipients age 55 and above will receive top-ups to their Retirement Account.

4. Can I still top up my Retirement Account after receiving payouts?
If you have reached your Payout Eligibility Age (PEA), you can still top up to your Retirement Account even after receiving your payouts, so long as you have not set aside the current Enhanced Retirement Sum.
