UP FOR LONG TERM
RETIREMENT PLANNING SERVICES
IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO PLAN
Retirement may seem a far-off event, and planning for it can pose a challenge when life’s more immediate priorities demand your hard-earned cash. Add to that the impact of inflation on your accumulated savings, and what you have managed to save by the time you retire will not have the same spending power then as it does today. The reality is that most individuals are not planning adequately for their retirement, especially as people are living longer and could spend as much as half of their life in retirement.
Retirement planning involves looking at a number of different factors to ensure you’re able to live out your golden years exactly as you want. There are a few key questions you should be asking:
- How much money do I need to save for retirement?
- When can I retire based on my current financial situation?
- How long does my retirement nest need to last?
- What is the inflation rate?
When considering these questions, it’s important to factor in CPF funds, housing costs, healthcare costs, day-to-day expenses, entertainment, travel, children’s education, current debt, the current inflation outlook, and much more. It’s also important to consider the fact that life expectancy in Singapore has increased – people are living longer, which can impact how long your retirement nest needs to last.
The reality is CPF funds and corporate pensions are often insufficient to provide the retirement income needed for you to maintain your present lifestyle indefinitely when you stop working. The earlier you start planning for your retirement – ideally as soon as you start working – the more wealth you will be able to accumulate to live out your golden years in comfort.
From budgeting and setting goals to finding the best retirement plans, our advisers will help you every step of the way.
HOW IPPFA APPROACHES
CPF CONTRIBUTIONS AND RETIREMENT SCHEMES
For some Singaporeans, it is possible that various Central Provident Fund (CPF) schemes can provide enough money to cover retirement expenses. But for many, there’s a good chance they can’t fully provide you the retirement you want. Aside from the inflation rate affecting your ultimate pay out, the funds may fall short of supporting your ideal retirement lifestyle.
Your Adviser will work with you to optimise your CPF contributions for retirement and tax savings, as well as help you maximise the use of the Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) and Retirement Sum (Cash) Top-up Scheme.
RETIREMENT INVESTMENT PLANNING
