Repaying CPF Accrued Interest – Why?
Reducing CPF Housing Accrued Interest
1) Accrued Interest ($20k) > Profits from Selling of House ($15k)
- Profits will ALL be used to cover the accrued interest.
- Any accrued interest not repaid by the profits will continue to accrued interest ($5k will continue to accumulate interest that will require you to repay some time in the future).
- You DO NOT NEED to TOP UP CASH to cover the difference ($5k), unless you wish to.
