Withdrawal schemes

Effective 1 January 2007, a member’s EPF savings consists of two accounts that vary by their share of savings and withdrawal flexibilities. The first account, dubbed “Account I”, stores 70% of the members’ monthly contribution, while the second account, dubbed “Account II”, stores 30%. Account I restricts withdrawals to the moment the member reaches an age of 55 years old, is incapacitated, leaves the country or passes away. Withdrawal of savings from Account II however, is permitted for down payments or loan settlements for a member’s first house, finances for education and medical expenses, investments, and the time when the member reaches 50 years of age.
