I viewed IRAS’s FAQ and the website only mentioned the spouse or sibling must not earn more than $4k. The website did not mention if there is any income threshold for parents. Reason being I want to top up my mom’s CPF account but she intends to find a job.
There is no income threshold for parents. As stated on the IRAS website:
This income threshold does not apply to parents, grandparents, handicapped spouse or handicapped siblings.
So even if she finds a job, it won't affect you topping up her CPF SA/RA.
The income threshold of $4k per year only applies to spouse and siblings.
Parents and grandparents aren't subjected to income threshold.
Maximum top up relief for tax would be $7k for family members (regardless of threshold or not).
If you referring to RSTU, tax relief is $7k/yr for yourself and additonal $7k/yr for your loved ones (1 pax only) so max is $14k/yr.
Theres no restriction / requirement for income threshold for parents
