Do you have to support your grand children?

Is your child handicap?

Otherwise ask him to contribute 500 pm. If staying with you, he should contribute 1.5k a month for room rent plus utilities.

They retire in their big penthouse condos or bungalows and spend their retirement growing their wealth through investments. They no longer need to be salaried workers. They no longer need to commute to work early in the morning, stuck in traffic jams as they work in the comfort of their home or while they relax at a beach resort. They are busy growing their passive income and wealth. And busy collecting the latest sport car models!
Good points bro. Some people are just naive even though they are old men. They like to make sweeping statements. LOL.

You must be working sub management job or technical job. A non professional.
try to get a professional degree and you should earn not less than 100k at your age.
i am only working as an mechanical engineer in a GLC.


so your son is a banker/finance.....sector???

I even doubt my general manager (age 50) earning as much as your son...

please comment

Not sure whether we are on the right path towards retirement. Hoping to get some comments from posters here.

We are not earning that much, only $172k pa as a couple. Savings $30k pa. We upgraded our home to a condo in 2006. Now it is fully paid. The last we checked, it is valued at $1m. We have CPF savings and cash savings, overall savings totalling $500k. Our net worth is $1.5m as a couple, 46 & 44 years old.

Are we on the right track towards retirement? When can we retire? 55? 60? 65? 70? 75? 80?

What do we need to do to prepare? Any finance guru here to advise? Thank you.

Technical man won't earn much. Service engineer?
Have you got your PE?
Try to work for it, and you should become a consultant in that field.

Sorry, I don't intend to look down upon you. Different category of profession. By the way, GM/ Project coordinator should be earning around 300k pa in big establishment.

It depends on your desired retirement lifestyle. You can retire at 55 if you are willing to move to a 4 room hdb flat at 55. At 55, let's say you sell your condo for $1.2m, then you buys flat for $400k in cash, you will then have $800k cash to spend for your retirement. At 55, your children would be working and will be financially independent from you. You and Wife will need about $3k pm. So between age 55 to 65, you will spend $360k. Your children will also start giving you money for about $1000 pm (2 kids) which you can save. Over 10 years, you will save $120k. So at the end of 10 years, your cash will be $(800-360+100) = $560k. When you reach 65, you will get $3500 pm as a couple from CPF Life. So your passive income will be $4500 pm.

If you want to stay in your condo, you will have to retire at 65 to wait for your CPF Life payout.

If you want to retire spending lavishly travelling around the world on first class, stay in 6 star hotels, gamble at casinos, party all night, etc, then you will need to retire at 80 years old and then die at 85. 5 years of retirement after 60 years of work.

Or you could die before you could even retire. No one knows when he will die.
