The Republic of Singapore’s social security system is founded on principles of self-provision and self-reliance; the country’s government limits its expenditure on social security schemes. The government’s policy has been that each generation must earn and save enough for their entire life cycle, with each individual being responsible for their own financial sustenance after their retirement. The Central Provident Fund (CPF) is a key component of Singaporean social security system. Most mandatory and state-sponsored benefits are limited to nationals and permanent citizens of the country.
