#Low to Medium Risk – Narrowly Focused - Country - Singapore.  The CPF interest rate for the Ordinary Account (OA) is based on the weightage of 80% of the average 12-month fixed deposit and 20% of the average savings rates published by the major local banks. Under the CPF Act, Chapter 36 of Singapore, the CPF Board pays a minimum interest of 2.5% per annum when this interest formula yields a lower rate. Savings in the Special and Medisave Accounts (SMA) are invested in Special Singapore Government Securities (SSGS) which earn an interest rate pegged to either the 12-month average yield of 10-year Singapore Government Securities (10YSGS) plus 1%, or 4% whichever is higher, adjusted quarterly. New Retirement Account (RA) savings are invested in SSGS which earns a fixed coupon equal to either the 12-month average yield of the 10YSGS plus 1% at the point of issuance, or 4%, whichever is higher. The interest credited to the RA is based on the weighted average interest rate of the entire portfolio of these SSGS invested using new and existing RA savings and is computed yearly in January. As announced in September 2019, the Singapore Government will maintain the 4.0% per annum minimum rate for interest earned on all SMA and RA monies until 31 December 2020. Thereafter, interest rates on all CPF account monies will be subject to a minimum rate of 2.5% p.a. (unless the Singapore Government extends the 4% floor rate for interest earned on all SMA and RA monies). The first S$60,000 of a CPF member’s combined CPF accounts earns an extra 1% interest. To enable CPF members to earn extra interest, only monies in excess of S$20,000 in a CPF member’s OA and S$40,000 in a CPF member’s Special Account can be invested. In addition, CPF members aged 55 and above will also earn an additional 1% extra interest on the first S$30,000 of their combined CPF balances (with up to S$20,000 from the OA). You should note that the applicable interest rates for each of the CPF accounts may be varied by the CPF Board from time to time. Subscriptions using CPF monies shall at all times be subject to (amongst other things) regulations and such directions or requirements imposed by the CPF Board from time to time. Please visit the CPF Board Website for further information on CPF interest rates.
