Additional Salary From Employer

Today, I realised one thing about Central Provident Fund (“CPF”) Contribution. I note that the salary earned from the active employment also consist of employer’s contribution CPF contribution is capped at the salary of $6,000. Any amount above $6,000 will not be subject to CPF deduction. In another word, the employer will contribute 17% of $6,000 ($1,020) into the CPF. This will mean an additional salary into CPF which can be withdrawn at the age of 55 with the assumption of one hitting the prevailing FRS at the age of 55 (at that point of time).
