To help Singaporeans save more for their medical and retirement needs, the Government will increase the employer CPF contribution rate by 1%. The increase will be done gradually in two steps to moderate the impact on employers.
The first 0.5% increase will be implemented on 1 September 2010, and will be made into the Medisave Account (MA). The remaining 0.5% increase will be effected 6 months later on 1 March 2011, and will be made to the Special Account (SA).
The Medisave contribution rates for Self-Employed Persons (SEPs) will correspondingly be increased by 0.5% on 1 September 2010.
