I started serious Investing Journey in Jan 2000 to create wealth through long-term investing and short-term trading; but as from April 2013 my Journey in Investing has changed to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

It is 57% (2017 to Aug 2022) to the Land of Investing Nirvana - Freehold Income for Life!

Singapore household incomes grew in 2018, income inequality stable

Read? Singapore household incomes grew in 2018, income inequality stable

CW8888: How much is enough to retire comfortably in Singapore for a couple without housing loans and children all independence?

When you NO need to save for your retirement anymore and also debt free; $4,000 to $6,000 is enough???

Among households headed by a Singapore citizen or permanent resident which had at least one working person, the median monthly income last year grew by 3 per cent in nominal terms to S$9,293, up from $9,023 in 2017.


  1. Do you think this statistics is meaningful when it includes the employer's CPF? I am just curious how this could be compared against other countries with no such scheme. Would median on disposable income be a lot more meaningful for Singapore?

    1. For retirement planning, we can deduct 37% off the median to work out magical number of how much is enough.

  2. 4-6k is definitely enough. When one is retired, there is no need for the following:

    1. Save for retirement.
    2.CPF contribution, haha incl employers
    3. home mortgage
    4. children education
    5 . car loans, and travelling expenses
    6. working expenses, from clothing to meals
    7. client entertainment, beer money
    8. Ang pow money

    I’m spending much less than the stated quantum.

  3. 4k to 6k is quite comfortable if not towards the Luxury sides when free of debt.
