An employer is any person, company, association or body of persons employing an employee under a contract of service or apprenticeship or a contract for service. An employer is liable to pay monthly contributions after hiring an employee for 6 or more days and paid a wage of $20.00 or more in a month.
It is a legal requirement under NPF Act (Cap 109) that every employer must registered with the SINPF Board within 14 days after commencement of business operations. Every employer is also required to register their employees (if not yet registered) within 14 days of commencement of employment.
The Unidentified contributions are funds paid by employers for their employees, but remain unidentified with the fund because of the following reasons:
- The name or membership number provided do not match SINPF records
- The use of initials and nick names on the monthly contribution schedules.
- Employees does not registered with SINPF during the period of employment.
While employees whose membership numbers and name are correctly quoted on the monthly contribution schedules are being updated, the contributions for employees who are affected by the above reasons are transferred to the Unidentified Account until such time their correct SINPF account number determine.
Although it is the employer’s obligation to register their workers, we encourage employees to take a proactive role in ensuring that they are registered with the Fund. If you are registered, it is important that your name and membership number on your employment records matches those on your birth certificate and SINPF card. This will enable SINPF to update your accounts in a timely manner.
