In 2016, if you are age 55 or above, the First $30,000 of your CPF Balance will receive a bonus +1%.
This bonus +1% is on top of the extra +1% given on your first $60,000 CPF balance.

If you are age 55 and above, the order of the bonus 1% interest goes like this:
1) Retirement Account (RA)
2) Ordinary Account* (OA)*
3) Special Account (SA)
4) Medisave Account (MA)

*Bonus 1% interest earned on your OA goes into your RA. The rest of the interest earned goes to the respective account (Eg; interest from MA amount goes into your MA)
