As part of the Budget 2023 announcement this year, the Central Provident Fund (CPF) monthly wage ceiling will be raised in stages, starting from the first increase from $6,000 to $6,300 in 1 September 2023, before the next adjustment taking place on 1 January 2024.
What Does This Mean
To help you understand these changes better, let’s consider an example: A 30-year-old Singaporean drawing a monthly salary of $7,000. Here’s how the CPF adjustments affect them:
How Does This Affect Employees and Employers
Employees will see a slight increase in their contributions, resulting in a reduction in take-home pay. There will also be an increase in contribution from Employers.
It is important to note that this will not affect employees drawing a monthly salary of $6,000 and below. Also, there are no changes to the CPF annual salary ceiling of $102,000.
What You Need to Do
Employers play a crucial role in ensuring accurate payroll processing. Ensure that the payslips for affected employees clearly reflect the new employee and employer contributions, as well as the revised net pay.
