Frequently Asked Questions
What is CPF Investment Scheme (CPFIS)?
The CPF Investment Scheme (CPFIS) allows CPF members to invest part of their CPF-OA, SA and/or SRS savings into Unit Trusts.
To invest with CPF-OA or SRS, simply open a CPF/SRS Investment Account with one of the 3 CPF agent banks (DBS/POSB, UOB, or OCBC).
Note: If you want to invest only the monies in your CPF Special Account (CPF-SA), you are not required to open a CPF Investment Account.
