Demonstrate a Comprehensive Understanding of the CPF Act

NTUC LearningHub

Course introduction

The Central Provident Fund Act has undergone a few rounds of changes in the recent years, and the rationale of these changes has to be understood in the context of the Singapores demographic shift and the restructuring of the Singapores employment landscape. Therefore, it is imperative that the management and HR personnel are familiar with how these changes are translated into the CPF contribution rates. The two basic underlying fundamentals of the CPF contributions are age group and wage band. Henceforth, this workshop also focuses on the hands-on computation to help learners develop in-depth understanding of the CPF Act and its applications.
