Oral Answer to PQ on review of CPF Nomination upon Divorce
NOTICE PAPER NO. 1984 FOR THE SITTING ON 3 JULY 2023
QUESTION NO. 4688 FOR ORAL ANSWER
MP: Mr Lim Biow Chuan
To ask the Minister for Manpower whether the CPF Board had reviewed the CPF nomination rules to allow the automatic revocation of a CPF nomination when a member has been divorced.
As mentioned in my earlier reply in March this year, the Ministry of Manpower and the CPF Board are currently reviewing the rules relating to automatic revocation of a CPF nomination. We understand that the Ministry of Law is also reviewing the rules relating to automatic revocation of wills, in the Wills Act 1838. We will provide an update when ready.
2. Starting from April 2023, CPF Board has reached out to members who experience a change in their marital status (including divorces) to consider making a new CPF nomination. This is in addition to reminders in their annual statement of accounts to review their nominations and make a new one if required so that it is up-to-date.
