The government will raise the Central Provident Fund (CPF) salary ceiling from S$5,000 to S$6,000, said Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of Finance, on Monday.

This increase will benefit at least 544,000 CPF members.

In line with the higher CPF salary ceiling, the government will raise the contribution cap within the Supplementary Retirement Scheme. This scheme offers tax incentives to encourage voluntary retirement savings to complement the CPF.

Both changes will take effect from Jan 1, 2016.
