Strengthening social protection in East Asia

"Structuring the payout phase in a defined contribution scheme in high income countries – Experiences of Singapore" provides readers with a brief introduction to Singapore’s unique model of social security – the Central Provident Fund (CPF), its various accounts and the CPF Investment Scheme.

The article includes an assessment of the financial instruments in place to facilitate the de-accumulation of assets accumulated using CPF and/or CPF savings and the Lifelong Income Scheme.

An evaluation of other mechanisms to enhance the adequacy of retirement savings is also discussed.
