Goal: I want to plan for my retirement


How to plan for my retirement

Ideally, you want to be contributing to your retirement pot as early as possible, but in the real world, it’s not always that easy. You’ll likely have other financial commitments –loans, bills – and desires, such as getting on the property ladder, starting a family or having that much-needed vacation.

Planning ahead is important as it means more time for your savings to benefit from the effects of compounding returns. However, it has been found that Singaporeans under 40 still tend to “brush aside their plans for retirement1.” Studies also show that most Singaporeans don’t even think about their retirement until age 38 – of which 2 out of 5 are confident of saving enough1.
