The Republic of Singapore's social security system is founded on principles of self-provision and self-reliance; the government limits expenditure on social security schemes. Government policy has been that each generation must earn and save enough for their entire life cycle, with each individual responsible for their own financial sustenance after retirement. The Central Provident Fund (CPF) is a key component of the Singaporean social security system. Most mandatory and state-sponsored benefits are limited to nationals and permanent citizens.
- The CPF plays an important role in Singapore's social security system, and is a defined-contribution scheme funded by contributions from employees and employers.
- Singapore also has some unique plans and systems such as the Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS), wherein contributions by the employer and employee are not mandated, although the government prescribes institutions and schemes where investments can be made to ensure income after retirement.
- As most statutory benefits offered in Singapore are limited to citizens and permanent residents, benefits offered by private companies play a significant role in attracting and retaining talent.
- There are, however, numerous means-tested assistance programs provided by the Ministry of Social and Family Development.
