Hmm ... One reason Uncle8888 recently came to know : Lock up this money in the CPF system till their children reach 55 so they can become richer with parental cash support. Do they mean that they are going to leave behind very LITTLE or NO inheritance for their children?
Which is likely to be larger? Inheritance or CPF when their parents have so much surplus cash to think of topping up their children CPF accounts?
Looking at Pennies; but forgetting those Pounds to be picked sooner than expected? Okay. They also mean they will set up Trust to protect the Inheritance too. Then this is smart financial decision! The last time Uncle8888 checked with OCBC Trust; we need minimum of $5M to set up this private Trust. :-(
I am 60+ yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has retired @ 60 on 30 Sep 2016.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 and now becoming full-time retail investor. So I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I have two sons and one daughter; two working adult children and the youngest son is currently in his 1st year SUTD.
I am currently executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038
