What should I do when I retired? — Read on here

With a longer life span, many people do not wish to retire early. In Singapore, the official retirement age is 62 and the employers are asked to offer eligible workers to continue working till 65. And Singapore government is looking into raising the age to 67, and this will give older workers additional 2 year of working life. Even then, 67 is still has many years away from the average life people live in this world. Therefore, I would like to ask people to find meaningful work to do after they retired.

It is important to plan ahead before your retirement age come. One of the concerns most retirees face is the financial means to enjoy their retirement and also worrying the inflation will erode their money. Another concern is the healthcare issue. As age come with health problem, this is no doubt about it and all the senior citizens need to get ready for it. The healthcare cost is increasing year after year, therefore it is advisable for seniors to find a means to earn income. Online business is the most suitable platform for them to pursue at their age.

With rising cost of living, we need more money to set aside for our retirement. According to a survey done by HSBC Singapore in July 2016, we need to save 9 year longer in order to have a comfortable retirement when comparing with our previous generation. This is rather scary to me. Work and save for another 9 years? I will get burn out more early. This is going to put more pressures on my current working life.

I would suggest to everyone who is reading my website here, to stop thinking about retirement. Instead, build your own online business now and continue to work as long as you are capable of working. I choose online business for seniors is because with online business you do not need to travel so much and you can simply work from home. This is the most suitable job for seniors as movement is minimum and you can work at home anytime you wish.
