Asked on 30 Aug 2019
I'm currently doing RSTU via CPF transfer on a monthly basis. Came across this article on Seedly today saying that CPF transfer works (I presume it means CPF transfer is allowed) only if my combined OA and SA balance meets the BRS. Currently, my combined balance meets the BRS. But in a few months time, I will be collecting keys to my BTO and wiping out a considerable sum from my OA. Might end up with <$88K. Would I then not be allowed to do CPF trfs after using a huge chunk of the $ for house?
I think you have a misunderstanding.
RSTU is just a transfer which allows tax relief of up to 7k per year, till FRS.
Buying a BTO requires a 10% Downpayment (for HDB loan) or 20% for Bank loan.
Only OA funds/cash are allowed to be used for housing payments.
SA remains stuck and can't be used.
Not sure if I answered your questions.
