CPF Restored – $22.50 More In Medisave Account


The government has announced that the employer CPF contribution rate will be increased by 1%.

From 1st September this year, your employer will pay an additional 0.5% to your Medisave Account. If you earn more than $4,500, you will get exactly $22.50 more. This is because CPF contributions are calculated based on the cap of $4,500.

However, if you already have $37,000 in your Medisave Account, the excess will be transferred to your Special Account. See CPF Medisave Contribution Ceiling. Note that this ceiling was $33,500 in 2007.

[Added 14 May: The MCC will be raised to $39,500 effective 1 July 2010. Source: Straits Times.]

The remaining 0.5% increase will go to your Special Account starting 1st March next year.
