Extra notes :
What is CPF Submission Number (CSN)?
CSN is the number you use to transact with CPF Board e.g. making CPF payments, paying foreign worker levies and making any request relating to employer matters. For entities, the CSN is the “Unique Entity Number (UEN) + CPF Payment Code”. For employers trading under their own names (e.g. individuals hiring a personal driver, gardener, local domestic worker etc), the CSN is the “NRIC/Foreign Identification Number (FIN) + CPF Payment Code”.
For individuals hiring foreign domestic workers or the self-employed, the CSN is the individual’s NRIC/FIN.
What is Unique Entity Number (UEN)?
The UEN is the standard identification number of an entity. The UEN is for registered entities while the NRIC is for Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents. The UEN uniquely identifies the entity.
Will Individuals be issued with a UEN?
Individuals will not be issued with a UEN. They will interact with government agencies using their NRIC or ID numbers or SingPass if they are Singapore IC holders.
What is CPF Payment Code ?
Employers will transact with CPF Board using their CPF Submission Number (CSN). The CSN comprises the employers’ Unique Entity Number (UEN) and CPF Payment Code.
The CPF Payment Code identifies the different types of payments made by employers to the Board. For example, the mandatory CPF contributions, voluntary contributions, Additional Medisave Contribution Scheme, etc.
Is it mandatory for all companies to apply for a CPF Submission Number (CSN) with CPF Board?
All employers are required to apply for a CSN to make CPF payments as soon as they intend to hire any Singapore Citizen or Singapore Permanent Resident employees.
Can I use my Unique Entity Number (UEN) to perform transactions with CPF Board? Why do I have to use my CPF Submission Number (CSN)?
No. You must use your CSN to perform transactions with CPF Board. The CSN is the UEN + CPF Payment Code. The UEN alone is not sufficient to identify the different types of CPF payments made by you.
