If I have $181,000 (the full retirement sum) in my special account, will I earn 4% on all my money?

What happens if my SA have more than that amount? Will I just earn 0 interest for the amounts exceeding the full retirement sum? Asking for my parents, who have no idea how all these works.

Hi Anon, all 181k receives 4% interest plus $600 (1% extra for first 60k), and the interest stays in the Special Account until age 55 when the FRS for that year is transferred to the Retirement Account where it'll continue to earn interest but will be then paid as CPF Life premium.

Balance SA above FRS at 55 will also continue earning base 4% interest but no bonus 1%.

Thank you! For the 181k, does it include money from the Ordinary Account, or is it 181k in SA alone?

You mentioned 181k in SA. So it earns 4%. If some of that is in OA, then that amount will earn OA rates of 2.5%.
