By making a CPF nomination, your nominees will receive your CPF savings in cash by default when you pass away. This applies to the CPF savings in all of your accounts – Ordinary, Special, MediSave and Retirement Accounts.
If you do not make a CPF nomination, your CPF savings will be transferred to the Public Trustee for distribution to your family members in cash under the Intestate Succession Act, or the Inheritance Certificate (for Muslims).
What is a CPF nomination?
A CPF nomination allows you to specify who will receive your CPF savings and how much each nominee should receive, in the event of your death.
You can make a CPF nomination online on the CPF website, in-person at CPF Service Centres or mail your completed nomination form to the CPF Board.
