CPF Minimum Sum to be raised to $155,000 from 1 July 2014

News Release by: Ministry of Manpower Central Provident Fund Board, 8 May 2014

2. In view of this, the Minimum Sum that will apply to CPF members who turn 55 between 1 July 2014 and 30 June 2015 is $155,000. This will be set aside in their Retirement Account using savings from their Special, and then Ordinary Accounts. The Minimum Sum for CPF members who turn 55 before 1 July 2014 remains unchanged.

6. From 1 July 2014,
a) The Medisave Minimum Sum will be raised to $43,500 from $40,500. A member will need to have this amount in his Medisave Account and also meet the CPF Minimum Sum before excess funds can be withdrawn.
b) The Medisave Contribution Ceiling will be increased correspondingly to $48,500, from $45,500. This is the maximum balance a member can have in his Medisave Account.
7. Any Medisave contribution in excess of the current Contribution Ceiling will be transferred to the member’s Special Account, if he is below age 55, or to his Retirement Account, if he is above age 55 and has a CPF Minimum Sum shortfall.
