Happy New Year 2016! With two working adult children and one is doing his NS, 2015 is a special year for Uncle8888 as this is the year that his three children don't eat much of his money. He will be able to estimate how much is the yearly household expenses for a couple like during his retirement.
His household expenses in 2015 has significantly reduced; but next year onward it will re-bound back as his youngest will ORD and continue with his uni study at SUTD.
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
