Save and invest to generate multiple sources of income during retirement. Brought to you by Public Mutual Berhad .
EVERYONE wants to retire comfortably. However, it would be difficult to enjoy your golden years without any worries if you do not have sufficient funds to support yourself during retirement.
The following are some other reasons why you should take steps to bolster your retirement fund today.1. Long-term sustainabilityMalaysians have a rising life expectancy, thanks to medical advancements, and this means that you will need to support yourself for a longer retirement period. At the same time, healthcare costs are escalating, which can lead to increased costs in retirement. As such, you need to take these factors into consideration when planning for your retirement.
2. Be self-reliantAs family sizes may have become smaller nowadays, it will take a lot more for children to support their parents during their retirement. You do not have to be a financial burden on your loved ones, especially as your children may have their own family to support, when you are able to generate your own income through your savings and investments.
3. Manage the impact of inflationInflation will erode your retirement fund as the value of your money today will not be the same in the future. By having a diversified savings and investment portfolio, you may hedge against the effects of inflation to protect your retirement fund. headtopics.com
To supplement your retirement savings for your future self, you may consider contributing into private retirement scheme (PRS) funds. Apart from building an additional income stream, you can also enjoy up to RM3,000 tax relief per year until 2025 and have peace of mind as your money in PRS will be protected from creditors.
