My point: Allow online access to SRS details

SINGAPORE - Singaporeans can open a Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) account with a local bank to plan for retirement. They can use the money in it to purchase shares and unit trusts.

However, depositors are unable to view the details of their account portfolios online, and must wait for their monthly bank statements.

I urge the banks to include the SRS as part of their Internet banking platforms.
