In Singapore, the main social security organizations are the Central Provident Fund (CPF) and the Skills Development Fund (SDF).
The CPF is a mandatory savings scheme that is designed to help Singaporeans save for retirement, healthcare, and home ownership. Employers are required to contribute a percentage of their employees’ salaries to the CPF on a monthly basis.
The contribution rates are based on the employee’s age and monthly salary, and range from 17% to 37%. In addition, employees are also required to contribute a portion of their salaries to their own CPF accounts.
The SDF is a government-run fund that supports training and development for Singaporean workers. Employers are required to contribute to the SDF on a monthly basis at a rate of 0.25% of their employees’ salaries.
The funds are used to support workforce training and development programs, such as skills upgrading and professional development.
