A 71-year-old Singaporean was allegedly left homeless when he lost his job, even though he had S$67,000 in his Central Provident Fund (CPF) account, since he only receives a S$425 monthly payout from the CPF Board.

Facebook user Kilmar Wong shared the plight of the elderly man, Mr Lim – a Singaporean who is not married and has no children.

Revealing that Mr Lim was left homeless after he lost a job that paid him S$1,100 each month, Wong shared that he is helping Mr Lim apply for a rental flat as he appealed for netizens to join him in helping Mr Lim find a new job and a place to live.

Sharing pictures of Mr Lim, Mr Wong wrote on Facebook: “Dear Singaporeans, I have attended a request to help n assist this Uncle whom is 71yo. (sic) He have  (sic) lost his job and currently Homeless.
