Rising cost of living

Are you prepared to cope with the rising cost of living? At the age of 65, you will begin to receive monthly CPF LIFE payouts. But with inflation and rising standards of living in Singapore, this amount might only be sufficient to fulfil your basic needs.

To sustain your desired retirement lifestyle, it is important for you to consider other wealth solutions that can supplement your CPF savings.

CPF Life Payouts

At age 55, a Retirement Account will be created for you. You can choose from three levels of retirement sums to set aside in your account: Basic, Full and Enhanced. This will determine the level of monthly payouts you will receive from the age of 65.

Payouts may also be adjusted to account for long-term changes in interest rates or life expectancy. Such adjustments (if any) are expected to be small and gradual.
