Maid levy doubled on CPF letter due to printing error

FOR the past few years, he had been paying a maid levy of $170 a month.

But on Monday, when his mother showed him last year's annual statement from the Central Provident Fund (CPF), he was shocked.

It showed he had been paying double at $340 monthly.

A CPF Board spokesman said an error in the printing program had resulted in the records of payment showing levies that were twice what employers had paid for. She said it affected one-fifth of the 220,000 maid employers. That works out to about 44,000 employers.

More in The New Paper on Friday (Jan 20).

I was also shocked.
When I checked my bank account, it was the correct amount deducted but I could only view the last 3 months transaction.
Now that it is official, I am relieved.
