Singapore – How to Validate the NRIC

When adding a NRIC for your employee, you need to make sure that you input a valid NRIC. The system won’t save an invalid NRIC.  Recently, we increased the strictness of the validation because we need it for the reports we generate like the CPF e-submission form. If you put in bad NRICs in the HRIS then the report comes out bad and you can’t submit it to CPF.

Here are some resources on how to validate the NRIC
