Firstly; max out CPFIS and stay fully invested before considering HDB housing loan as option. In later years can sell stocks and refund back to CPF OA to service housing loan when necessary. (CW8888 : Hmm ... really arh. Sound like retail investing by CPF members over market cycles is not that difficult hor OR you are damn lucky at the right time!) Secondly; max out transfer from CPF OA to CPF SA. (CW8888 : Still ok!)
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.
