Thanks for replying. I feel that the 4% rule applied to the past when getting a high interest rate of 5-6% from deposits and low risk instruments was relatively easy to achieve. You can get close now however I want to wait for a correction to buy some more blue chip securities.

It is not that difficult to earn a 10k passive income. A 2M portfolio having a mixture of blue chip banks, and REITS can easily get you 5-6% yield at relatively low risk.

I do not really believe in passive income in blue chips and REITS etc. It is not difficult but a person has to actively monitor and manage these. It gets harder as one gets older and needs to rely more on the passive income vs a salary for expenses.

I feel that the success in those financial blogs is because we have had a long run without a depression in the markets.

Also, if someone has 2M, its advisable to break that down to different asset classes and also maintain some cash for emergencies and also for a war chest which means that it will not be a straight 4-6% yield for the entire amount.

Great savings!

Why don't you buy a resale HDB flat or invest your cash?

i think I would want to do that too when I retire. I suppose you can also rent out your city flat and rent a cheaper and smaller flat in the suburbs, or even just a room, if you don't mind compromising on space and privacy.
