We enjoy a quiet and modest living.
Are you at the financial security, independence, freedom or abundance level?

This is a good plan. Your condo is a good asset to monetise. Many people sell their private property and downgrade to a HDB flat to get cash to retire. Actually you donít need $500k for 10 years. $300k is enough as you need only $30k pa for retired couple. If you cook your own meals you only need about $500 pm for groceries. No need to buy expensive food. Buy cheap but nutritious food. Transport is also cheap with public transport.

I just decided to make money apart from my recent job and cryptocurrency investment was a right solution for me. I decided to buy crypto on Switchere which is a pretty decent solution in order to check all the prices, recent news and ways to buy coins for a good price.

Currently my net worth is more than $1 mil. At 55 after I sell my paid up condo and collect my CPF, I can retire. I value early retirement. I donít need to earn more money. I know of people who died before 65. I want to enjoy retirement as early as I can since I can afford it. I donít need to retire in a condo. I donít need a car. I want a simple retirement lifestyle

Well done! You are enlightened!

I retired at 44 after a high flying career. Regret not retiring earlier!

Default Better late than never

Started work late, so late 30s now and salary at S$300k p.a.

Single with no family commitments. Assets of S$1m with 50% paid up and a car which is fully paid up.

Not sure when is a good time to retire but with ever increasing living expenses, doubt it can be anytime within the next 10 years.
