    If you're fully aware of that, then, you're alluding that the gov is stealing our money and using it to pay their salaries. If it is so, its a serious matter.

    ........ I did not ... you are the one who sounds so serious ....... Anyway, is CPF your money and do you get to use it at free will before you reach 65 and beyond? Are you not able to manage your own funds at 40 or maybe 50 years of age?

    Have you reached 65 and beyond and experienced the "never to see it again" part that you describe so confidently?

    Grateful Singaporean unite, non-grateful ones pls go find a way out and live in another host country.
    Year later pls give us an update of how well are you settling oversea

    Then you will appreciate what Singapore can provide n be proud of our progress n good governance.

    It is because they allow you to use your CPF for housing that housing prices can rise correspondingly. This money too you do not see unless you suddenly don't need housing. If the government allow us to use CPF for COE and the price of COE then rise to 200k is that helping us?
