There is an upper cap of CPF contribution rate for employee 55 years & below (from 1 Jan 2016): 

Types of Singapore PR First-year Second-year
Employer contribution rate Employee contribution rate Employer contribution rate Employee contribution rate
Graduate employer & employee (G/G)   4% 5% 9% 15%
Max of $240 Max of $300 Max of $540 Max of $900
Full employer & graduate employee (F/G)   17% 5% 17% 15%

Max of Ordinary Wages: $6,000
Max of Additional Wages: $102,000 - Ordinary Wages subject to CPF for the year


So for example, say you earn $7,500 a month, and earn an annual bonus of $15,000. Only the first $6,000 of your monthly income will be subject to CPF contributions. As for your annual bonus, the Additional Wage Ceiling is $102,000 – $6,000 x 12 = $30,000. This means that your entire annual bonus is also subject to CPF contributions as it is below the CPF contribution cap.

The total CPF contribution will be rounded to the nearest dollar
