March 1, 2015, Singapore - On the back of recent announcements on CPF changes, PAP Women's Wing (PAP WW) branch leaders have thrown the spotlight on homemakers who have little CPF savings of their own to draw on in retirement. It welcomed the new Silver Support scheme which will benefit many homemakers. However, it was worried that more flexibility to withdraw CPF savings at 65 could result in smaller monthly payouts from CPF Life.
Said Mdm Kalayani S Ramasamy, WW Vice-Chair of Canberra Branch, "These women depend on their husband's CPF savings. It's good that the Government now gives more flexibility. But if the wife has been a homemaker, I hope there's a way to remind the husbands to top-up her account."
