CPF members below 55 years old
CPF members aged 55 and above
HDB Mortgage Rate from 1 July 2020 to 30 September 2020
CPF members below 55 years old will be paid an extra 1% interest on the first $60,000 of their combined balances (with up to $20,000 from the OA). They will continue to earn interest rates of up to 3.5% per annum on their Ordinary Account (OA) monies, and up to 5% per annum on their Special and MediSave accounts (SMA) monies in the third quarter of 2020.
For members aged 55 and above, the Government pays an extra 2% interest on the first $30,000 of their combined balances (with up to $20,000 from the OA), and an extra 1% on the next $30,000. As a result, members aged 55 and above will earn up to 6% interest per year on their retirement balances.
The extra interest paid to CPF members is part of the Government’s efforts to enhance the retirement savings for CPF members.
The extra interest received on the OA will go into the member’s Special Account (SA) or Retirement Account (RA) to enhance his or her retirement savings. If a member is above 55 years old and participates in the CPF LIFE scheme, the extra interest will still be earned on his or her combined balances, which includes the savings used for CPF LIFE.
The OA interest rate will be maintained at 2.5% per annum from 1 July 2020 to 30 September 2020.
Correspondingly, the concessionary interest rate for HDB mortgage loans, which is pegged at 0.1% above the OA interest rate, will remain unchanged at 2.6% per annum from 1 July 2020 to 30 September 2020.
The SMA interest rate will be maintained at 4% per annum from 1 July 2020 to 30 September 2020.
The RA interest rate will be maintained at 4% per annum from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020, as announced on 20 September 2019.
