100k used to be a big deal 10 years ago, but it's the average pay for degree holders in their thirties. 200k is within reach of the average grad in his forties.

300k and beyond requires some luck and effort.

Agree, if add bonus, for a couple with at least 2nd hons upper and both working in banks, mncs, law firms or big4, hitting 200k per year is realistic and easily achievable at age 30.
Increasingly Singapore will see two distinct tier of graduate class - the hdb type earning <8k/mth at early 30s and condo type earning >20k/mth at early 30s.

Such feelings of happiness from the children is contagious.....When you finally have $2m in your bank, you may feel happy and a sense of pride that you have arrived, but such hapiness will not last. Trust me. In time, it is only a number in your bank account and you will realise that you do not need a lot of money to make yourself happy. You will feel happy when you spend on your loved ones like your parents and children.

Well said, Daddy Unregistered. :)

assuming your statement is correct that will be 7% increment for 10year to go from 100K to 200K.

This assume you have not hit the salary ceiling.

CPF OA only or CPF OA+SA+Medisave?

100k seems low for people in their forties.
