3 Ways To Boost Your Retirement Fund
Author Avatar

Preparing for retirement is not a topic that many are fond of discussing. Some believe that they can begin saving later or only start thinking about it when nearing middle age. According to a survey conducted by RinggitPlus in 2022, 82% of Malaysians believe that their EPF savings are insufficient for their retirement. At the same time, half of those surveyed have not begun planning or made any effort to supplement their EPF savings. 

You can never be too young to start planning for your retirement, and your 20s could be the ideal time to grow your savings. During this period, you have a higher risk appetite as well as longer investment horizon, and thus there is bigger potential for you to reap the benefits that come with compounding interest. 

What can you do to ensure your retirement fund will be sufficient to support your preferred post-retirement lifestyle? You can start by planning and taking action as early as possible! It is critical that you prioritise your retirement savings because once you can no longer earn a steady income, your retirement savings may be the only source of funds you have to keep you afloat throughout post-retirement life.

Having a nest egg for your golden age is critical. Not having a retirement fund that can sustain your post-retirement life may force you to return to the workforce or risk poverty.

PRS, in not a saving which has good returns, just keep with EPF.
The only benefit is the tax benefit for the 3000 deposited.
Other wise it is loss making.

PRS is sampah … Give me negative return after 8 years. The only positive with PRS is their bosses all drive big cars
