3 main concerns that many retirees faces at retirement:
- Unable to replace their pre-retirement income during their retirement years. No more monthly income!
- The retirement fund that they have is not enough to last their entire retirement years. After 1-3 years, all EPF or KWSP money is fully utilized for loan settlement, buy a house, buy a new car, son's or daughter's wedding and so on.
- Effect of inflation to their retirement fund. The cost of living 15 to 20 years ago is different.
As a result, these retirees may
- Be dependent on financial support either from their family or the government. Not enough money!
- Outlive their retirement savings. Fully utilized. No more money in saving account. No back up plan!
- Face with an increased cost of living. Expensive and more expensive!
