Unfortunately this is the wish of immaturity.....to feed off the politicians....similarly to the BR1M.....

Handouts and handouts galore.........grovelling at the feet of them politicians while they make
their millions and crash the country

When that happpens, how much is your RMs in the EPF worth? nod.gif

I think it is calculated based on balance left each month up till 31 Dec. Meaning you cannot use 31Dec2012 balance to calculate.

i'm no finance expert..but both has it's own advantages and disadvantages

take from epf:
- you have more cash to move around in the near future (the time where u r not yet 55), so u might be able to do investment/buy another property that is higher than epf dividend
-very good for those who dun have cash to buy their first house (higher and higher house cost, majority situation reach to capital growth if buy house rather than keep in epf)

remain money from epf:
-higher dividend that fixed deposit and other investment if u don't really know how to invest
-but u can only get after age 55
-u dunno what will happen with our goverment and country (example: greece)

It should be the December amount multiplied with 6.15%, it SHOULD NOT be 5.80% only. There is a problem here.

I believe the formula is not that straight forward. I believe it's using pro-rated formula.

Refer to this: http://1-million-dollar-blog.com/how-to-ca...e-epf-dividend/

Let me resolve this once and for all:

Take
Dec-11 balance x 6.15%
Jan-12 contribution x 6.15% x 11/12 (assuming contribution is credited into EPF account at mid-month)
Feb-12 contribution x 6.15% x 10/12
Mar-12 contribution x 6.15% x 9/12
...
Dec-12 contribution should get nothing

U should roughly get the amount, plus and minus some rounding. smile.gif
