Sound like you are not a contented person and paranoid by those insurance experts

Co-own a 5 rm hdb flat and utilise some CPF funds for insurance investment in my youth.
Feeling a bit worried about retirement as I have not even hit a million in cash savings or own a second property.
Think my monthly expenses too high. Any advice?

I am 54, my wife 53.

Sold away FH inter-interrace. Got a 999-yr condo under my wife's name. Loan for 3 yrs as interest rate is lower than CPF OA rate. Will fully settle after that.

I have about $1.1M in OA and SA. I have some savings from insurance. I don't think I got much, about $250k if I surrender. My wife about the same.

My wife and I have about another about $1m in liquid assets - stocks and cash.

We are very tired after working for 30+ yrs. Kids are in their 20s and finishing their local tertiary education. Looking to retire in 2-3 yrs time.

I do not believe I am well off. I would say comfortable.

Mind sharing the industry / position that you and your wife are currently in/holding?

How old are you ? And if u actively re-Invest ur OA ? And if the house had been fully paid off ? I suppose is via cash since u have OA balance.

Cos once you hit the cap for Employer/Employee contribution , your OA will only be going up a steady rate excluding the interest u can earn .
