SMOL has been through it. He knows what he is talking. Once that few months of Honeymoon period is over; retirees will be wondering what to do with too much free time. Charity or volunteer works? Probably so. Somehow while we were talking on this topic on doing charity works. Woman made a good suggestion to Uncle8888. Your financial literacy can be an Act Of Charity too. Hmm ... To think of it. It is not new! Uncle8888 has been doing it for the past few years performing this "Act of Charity" to his now ex-colleagues. It is an open secret that Uncle8888 is an active retail investor watching market and reading financial news during office hours. Reaching the Edge of Financial Independence made that difference. No worry! Ha! Ha! BTW. Uncle8888 is not into the business of preaching "I CAN. So You CAN!"Not that type! LOL! SRS Top Up? CPF OA to SA Top Up? Topics close to our heart but alternate views are buried by the main stream louder voices? No?
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.
