This post is to remind me that I've made my CPF nomination at the start of 2021...all within 10 minutes
It was an impromptu event.
I mean, I had wanted to do this since a long time, but never got around it. For one, I had difficulties finding 2 witnesses lol. But I realised I should just be thick skinned to ask.
Nice enough, the 2 witnesses replied instantly with their details ❤️❤️❤️
You can refer to the picture here on what details your witnesses need to provide:
- their IC number
- name as per IC
- email address
- mobile number
Anyway, the CPF nomination was sparked by CPF's video when I was browsing facebook - so CPF Social Media peeps, your post/intent is working. Here's the said video or you can click the link here:
I decided to do it because as what the video shared, if I pass away without a nomination, my CPF money will be distributed by intestacy law, takes 6 months to process, and requires fees for my family to receive my money.
Whereas through a 10 minutes nomination, I could:
- determine the distribution of my CPF money
- shorten the processing time to 6 weeks
- no fees incurred
I feel this is a responsible thing to do while I'm still healthy and kicking. We all die some-day. While I hope to die at 100 years old peacefully, I can't predict what will happen realistically. Best to make plans while we are capable of doing so.
I hope this sparks you to do yours 😊
