    2nd grp is those who received the after tax amount!

    Question: can u use ur CPF to pay for ur funeral!!?? Will CPF states the same reason if the min. Amt of $130k is not reach, u cannot use!!!
    As a person with some knowledge of CPF, I must say your 'arguments' have zero merit and spiced up to justify whoever-knows what.

    something weird here ..... $28 taxi ride to go to polyclinic ? There are enough polyclinics scattered around our heartlands that even a peak hour cab ride will not cost that much .... unless they are living in a elite area

    Sad to see this happen but please at least have some appreciation for the Polyclinics who provide affordable subsidized medical care ... they are not a transportation firm

    The elderly couple made a couple of bad choices on how to get to a polyclinic vis a vis where they live and the amount of money they had on hand

    Where on earth are their children should be the question
