View CPF balance, get reminders in the updated LifeSG mobile app, Latest Singapore news


New features have been rolled out in the government’s LifeSG mobile app, bringing it one step closer to becoming a super app for utilities.

Last Thursday, the Government Technology Agency (GovTech) added a new “Profile” feature to the app that allows users to see at a glance some of their personal information from public agencies.

For example, they can view their Central Provident Fund (CPF) balances and their annual income taxable by the Singapore Inland Revenue Authority for tax reporting purposes.

They can also see the benefits and government support they have, such as the amount remaining for their SkillsFuture Credit and SingapoRediscovers Vouchers.

LifeSG, which was developed by GovTech, provides government services to users at different stages of their lives and makes it easy to navigate different websites and applications to access these services.

The app’s new profile feature also comes with an inbox and an appointment feature, which shows people the appointments they have with public agencies, as well as reminders for government transactions and events they registered for through LifeSG.

Parents of young children will be the first group of users to benefit from the inbox, with reminders and guided notifications to help them with processes such as registering their baby’s birth and managing health. child or early childhood education.

Going forward, the inbox will also keep users up to date with announcements and government resources such as Covid-19.

The app’s eligibility checker helps users find government assistance or programs they’re eligible for. Over 30 programs are listed, including the Medisave Infant Grant, and more will be included in the future. – THE TIMES OF THE STRAITS
