    How many ways can we withdraw our provident funds (CPF)?

    This falls inside my "area of concern" and not in my "area of influence". Since nobody is going to die, lets move along.

    it is amazing that government can take such huge risk and yet they can't use the money to help the poor...

    what poor??? they are no longer classified poor... new terms = "forgotten". hence the charity are now seeking funding from the private sector, seeking private volunteers etc... those that they felt might still remember......

    Small amount as compared to what GIC & Temasek Holdings had lost last year in the tune of tens of billions of dollars.

    Anyway, I kind of share some common sentiments with this article on issues such as we should adopt the first world country approach in having an independant inquiry into substaintial losses suffered in which the monies are not even tax but pension funds of thou the citizenry.

    GIC may lose more than SGD$20 billion dollars of Singapore’s reserves

    There will only be one way soon, that is when we die (assuming you still have much left after servicing your ridiculous housing price).

    More good years ahead.

    Ya there is. But just dun increase this and increase that whenever they lost money.

    To have to get president approval for 4.9 billion to help the economy while they have tens of billions to gamble freely is a joke to me.
