A recent screenshot of a letter from the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board might have gone viral on the internet.

This letter was to a Singaporean who is turning 65 years old in May 2019. According to the understanding of most Singaporeans, 65 is the age where one is eligible for CPF monthly payout. The letter, however, states that the payout is “by default” shifted to age 70 and one will need to opt out of it to receive the payout earlier.
