If there are insufficient funds in my MediSave Account, can I use my Ordinary Account/Special Account monies to pay for my MediShield Life premiums?
The savings in a member's various CPF accounts are for specific uses. Savings in the Ordinary Account and Special Account are primarily for housing and retirement while the savings in the MediSave Account are for payment of MediShield Life premium and hospitalisation expenses.
Generally, funds in the accounts are not inter-transferable. Therefore, the funds in your Ordinary Account/Special Account is unable to be used for payment of MediShield Life premiums.
