1. What is an SRS account?
The Supplementary Retirement Scheme ("SRS") is a voluntary scheme that complements the CPF Scheme in Singapore. You contribute any amount to your SRS (subject to a cap which is currently at $15,300 per year). This contribution can be excluded from your taxable income for the year. In addition, when you withdraw the funds on or after your retirement age, you will also be able to avoid paying taxes on this amount. We explain this below in Q3.
Interestingly, your SRS account is managed by the banks, not CPF. So you will need to set up an SRS account with your bank. If you need help setting us your SRS account, please do WhatsApp us at 91515963.
Important things to note about the SRS:
|Bank||How to Transfer||Deadline|
|DBS||Digibank||7pm, on the bank's last working day of December|
|UOB||UOB Personal Internet Banking||8pm, on the bank's last working day of December|
|UOB||Cash or debit from UOB account at a UOB branch||29 Dec 2022, respective branch banking hours apply|
|UOB||Cheque deposit at a UOB branch or Quick Cheque Box||3:30pm, 29 Dec 2022|
Cash at Bank Branches
Cheque deposit at Cheque Box
|SRS contribution requests submitted between 9am and 9pm from Monday to Saturday (excluding public holidays) will be processed immediately. Requests submitted after 9pm or on a non-business day will be processed on the next business day.|
2. When can I start withdrawing from my SRS account without penalty?
You can make withdrawals after the statutory retirement age based on when your first SRS contribution was made. This is currently age 63 and will increase over time. If you wish to lock in an earlier retirement age, do set up your SRS account and put in at least $1.
3. What does the 50% tax concession mean?
After your retirement age, you can start withdrawing from your SRS account for a period of 10 years. Only 50% of the funds withdrawn are subject to income tax. As income up to $20,000 attract no income tax in Singapore, you can withdraw up to $40,000 SRS funds ($20,000 x 2) per year without having to pay any tax. This means that you can withdraw up to $400,000 tax-free over 10 years!
4. What can I invest in to increase my returns on my SRS account?
As the SRS funds will be in the SRS account for a long time, you can consider taking on assets that give a better return in the long-term. You would want to at least beat inflation! Generally, "guaranteed products" such as fixed deposits will give a very low returns that do not even cover inflation. Consider insurance plans such as Gro Saver Flex Pro, Gro Retire Flex Pro and MyLifeIncome II to get a mix of guaranteed returns and bonuses. These plans may offer capital guarantees as well, so you can be confident that your capital is not eroded over time.
You can also consider risker investments that may give even higher returns like SRS-approved unit trusts. Check out our offering of such unit trusts here.
5. How is WealthLink, #goElite Secure or #goElite different to SRS Participating Insurance Plans?
WealthLink, #goElite Secure and #goElite are investment linked plans which means that the underlying assets are invested in selected investment funds and the value of these funds may increase or decrease depending on the market conditions.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, there is no guarantee on the value of the underlying assets.
#goElite Secure offers a high watermark locked-in value explained above to protect your death benefit against volatile market conditions.
Participating plans tend to have a more stable growth in policy value as the insurer typically seeks to smooth returns to the policyholders over time. There is also an underlying guaranteed surrender value.
