Insurance

The SRS offers attractive tax benefits as contributions to SRS are eligible for tax relief in the following year of assessment for tax. However, do note that with effect from 1 Jan 2017, there is a cap on personal income tax relief of $80,000 per year of assessment, so if your personal relief has exceeded $80,000 for the year, further contribution to SRS would not attract any tax benefit.

Investment returns are accumulated tax-free. SRS, however, are taxable but only at withdrawals. Only 50% of the withdrawals after the statutory retirement age* from SRS are taxable (referred to as a “50% tax concession”).

*The statutory retirement age is the prevailing age when you made your first SRS contribution. Currently, it is 62.
