Update of CPF Contribution Exemption for Students Participating in School-Approved Work


Currently, employers of students from LASALLE College of the Arts are exempted from the requirement to contribute CPF to their employees’ accounts while they are employed during the school holiday period, but not during term time. With effect from 1 Feb 2018, the CPF contribution exemption will be extended to include school-approved work during term time for students on MOE-funded diploma and degree programmes at LASALLE, in addition to exemptions from mandatory CPF contributions for paid work during school holidays. In practice, this means that employers of LASALLE students who participate in school-approved work (including attachments/internships) during the school term are not required to contribute to the employees’ CPF accounts.
