Why would you need it?

There is not an easy way. Contributing to CPF is not a pre-requisite for keeping your PR. (If you are self-imployed as a PR and get paid by director's fees only you would not be contributing to CPF).

Having said that, as a working stiff, you would probably have to be gainfully employed for at least 6 months before renewing your re-entry permit. If you have been out of the country from almost the beginning of your PR then you may still have a problem because it would be fairly to anybody except an idiot that you were only abusing the system.
