More details on my question above, this would mean that my OA account would not have any increase in amount on a monthly basis (as the balance left from monthly contribution would be transferred to SA), other than the interest earned on the $20k left in my OA account.

Hi Ting Han,
Transferring your Ordinary Account (OA) savings to your Special Account (SA) is only available for members below 55 years old who do not have a Retirement Account (RA).
For members aged 55 and above, you can transfer your SA, followed by your OA savings to your RA to build up your retirement savings, up to the current Enhanced Retirement Sum. Doing so will help to build your retirement savings to give you higher monthly payouts from age 65.
You can try using this online tool to estimate the payouts under CPF LIFE: https://www.cpf.gov.sg/eSvc/Web/Schemes/LifeEst...
