I WANT MORE OUT OF LIFE
All of us want a life without worries. With hope in our hearts and the future, we find a secure job and cope with the daily grind, balancing career, health and happiness. Retirement seems exciting with more free time, but the burden of finances might leave you with doubt and anxiety.
However, what if you could live the life you’ve always wanted? Imagine days with the freedom to relax, spend time with your family and friends and explore your interests. When you realise that you want more in life, you have a choice: to live with just enough to get by or build life the way you want it to be.
SAVING MORE FOR MY FUTURE LIVING
While you have savings in a mandatory scheme, it may be insufficient for the lifestyle you have always had. Reports show that most retirees deplete their mandatory scheme savings within five years after retirement. Additionally, with the increased average life expectancy of Malaysians*, 72.6 years for males and 77.6 years for females, you will need to save more to ensure that your retirement savings are sufficient to sustain your living for at least 15-20 years after you stop earning an active income.

To achieve the two-thirds benchmark for your retirement, PPA suggests saving a minimum of a third (33%) of your monthly salary.
In the private sector, one can assume you are already contributing 11% of your salary to a mandatory scheme, while your employer contributes 12%, bringing mandatory contributions to a total of 23%.
Hence, you only need an additional 10% of your monthly income in Private Retirement Schemes (PRS) to get more out of life when you retire.
The amount each person needs for retirement may vary depending on the individual’s lifestyle. You can use PPA’s retirement calculator as a guide to find out how much you need to save for the retirement that you want.
