The final payment date is called the “redemption date”.

For settlement via your CPF funds, please make the necessary application to CPF Board to remit the outstanding loan amount to the Bank within 3 to 5 working days before the redemption date (subject to the Bank’s policies). Kindly note that if you remit your CPF funds too early, eg. one month before the redemption date, the Bank may reject the payment and remit the funds back to your CPF account. Therefore, please always follow the Bank’s instructions given to you.
