3 Phases of Retirement ActivePassiveSupport Decreasing Health and Independence Retiree may still be working albeit at a slower pace. Also lives an active lifestyle and have various hobbies. Extra income from work seen as a supplement Retiree stops work entirely. Less physically demanding hobbies will be preferred. Retiree may be more careful with expenses, but is still capable for caring for themselves Retiree is no longer able to take care of themselves, and may require special nursing care and other support services.

Successful Ageing for Singapore To ensure that all levels of society are well prepared for the challenges as well as opportunities of an ageing Singapore: Source: Inter-Ministerial Committee on the Ageing Population, 1999 Family Community National Family Level – strong, extended and caring families Community Level – strong network of community services, as well as with opportunities for engagement and the integration of the communities National level – high level of national preparedness with a competitive and vibrant economy, as well as social cohesion and rootedness
Workfare Aims to provide support for low-wage workers so that they have the best chance to progress Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) scheme was introduced in 2007 to encourage older low-wage workers: to work regularly To build up their CPF savings More details on Workfare from http://www.mom.gov.sg/employment-practices/employment-rights-conditions/workfare/Pages/workfare-income-supplement.aspx Workfare Training Support Scheme (WTS) Complements WIS by encouraging employers to send their older lower-wage workers for training, as well as encourage workers to go for and to complete their training Workfare Special Bonus This bonus is announced from time-to-time to ensure that low-wage workers benefit from economic growth
Central Provident Fund (CPF) CPF savings are meant to provide for housing and medical needs and for basic living needs after retirement* Consists of 4 main funds 1)CPF Ordinary Account Savings can be used to buy a home, CPF Insurance, Investment and Education 2)CPF Special Account For old age and investment in retirement-related financial products 3)Medisave Account Savings can be used for hospitalisation expenses and approved medical insurance 4)Retirement Account (created at age 55) Administered by CPF Board Mandatory contributions by: Employers Employees Self-Employed *Source: SRS Booklet (Ministry of Finance) 18 Feb 2011 Source: http://mycpf.cpf.gov.sghttp://mycpf.cpf.gov.sg
Central Provident Fund (CPF) Main milestones include 1955, the British colonial authority in Singapore established the CPF as a compulsory savings scheme to allow workers to save for their retirement 1984, Medisave was introduced as a savings for Hospitalisation expenses for contributors and their family members 1987, Singaporeans were required to set aside a minimum sum in their CPF when they reached age 55. This amount would provide them with a monthly income when they retiree. Source: http://mycpf.cpf.gov.sghttp://mycpf.cpf.gov.sg

CPF Minimum Sum (MS) Scheme Intended to finance the increase life expectancy of retirees. Provides members with a monthly income to support a modest standard of living during retirement Q: Will CPF Savings be enough for Retirement?
CPF Minimum Sum (MS) Scheme First began in 1 July 1995 with the initial amount of $40,000 to reach an amount of $80,000 by 2003 $40,000 annual increments Since 2004, MS has been increased from $80,000 to $120,000, in incremental steps of $4,000 (all values in 2003 dollars) The 2003 MS value (with increment) is then adjusted for inflation each year. The $4,000 increment in 2012 (adjusted for inflation) would have amounted to a $12,000 increase of the MS. To mitigate the large increase in MS due to inflation, CPF Board has decided to spread out increase in MS to reach $120,000 (in 2003 value) by 2015 instead of 2013 From 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013, CPF members will need to set aside $139,000 (up from $131,000) *Source: http://mycpf.cpf.gov.sghttp://mycpf.cpf.gov.sg

Adjusted for 2011 inflation, this would have resulted in a MS of $143,000 This is a large jump of $12,000 or 9% from the previous MS of $131,000 Instead of the target of reaching $120,000 MS in 2003 value by 2013, CPF Board has decided to reach the target $120,000 over 4 years. The 2012 MS stands at $139,000.
CPF Minimum Sum (MS) Scheme *Source: CPF Board – New CPF Changes in 2012. More details on the new LIFE plans will be made available in 3Q 2012 To help increase CPF LIFE payouts, members who turn 55 from 2013 onwards and who have not met their MS will have their post-55 contributions to the OA and SA automatically transferred to their RA when they reach the draw-down age (DDA) or 65 years old* This will translate into higher monthly payouts for members Amount a member can withdraw in cash under the existing withdrawal conditions remains the same.
CPF MS Withdrawal Cash balances CPF Accounts* Amount which you can withdraw $5,000 or lessAll your cash balances More than $5,000 but less than or equal to $50,000 $5,000.

CPF “Income” for Life? CPF will not be able to adequately finance your retirement: 1.monthly payouts are not indexed against inflation, therefore subsequent payouts will depreciate in value and hence, purchasing power 2.CPF MS is able to provide monthly income to the member for 18-20 years. This may not be a long enough period of time for retirement income 3.Singaporeans are expected to live much longer Better lifestyle Better medical support and advancement *Source: http://mycpf.cpf.gov.sghttp://mycpf.cpf.gov.sg

Supplementary Retirement Scheme Was introduced in 2001 Complements the CPF savings as part of the government’s multi- pronged strategy to address the financial needs of its aging population. This is due to the recommendations of the Inter-Ministerial Committee’s Report on the Aging Population Contribution is voluntary, and can be in any amounts (subject to an annual cap) Contributions can be used to purchase various investment instruments Contributions to SRS are eligible for tax relief, and investment returns accumulated tax-free When withdrawn at retirement 1, only 50% withdrawal from SRS is taxable 1 Retirement refers to the Statutory Retirement Age, which is the retirement age at the point in time the contributor makes his first SRS contribution *Source: Ministry of Finance
Supplementary Retirement Scheme All Singaporeans, Singapore PRs (SPR) and foreigners can open an SRS account Must be at least 18 years old Not undischarged bankrupts, and Not mentally disordered and capable of managing themselves and their affairs To participate in SRS, you must first open an account (only one) with any of the 3 SRS operators: DBS Ltd OCBC Ltd UOB Ltd You may, however, transfer your account from one operator to another *Source: Ministry of Finance
SRS Contribution If you earn any form of income, including directors’ fees in the current year, you are allowed to contribute to SRS Employers are also allowed to contribute to your SRS account on your behalf. Their contribution is treated as part of your remuneration, and thereby taxable in your hands. *Source: Ministry of Finance
Contribution Cap You can contribute in a year any amount up to your contribution cap The Contribution Cap is determined by the product of the Absolute Income Base and the SRS contribution rate *Source: Ministry of Finance Absolute Income Base = $85,000 Contribution RateSingaporean & SPR 15% Foreigner 35% Contribution Cap (Absolute Income Base) x (Contribution Rate) = 85,000 x 15% = 12,750 = 85,000 x 35% = 29,750
SRS Contribution and Taxation The contribution cap is calculated based on income earned the year previous to the year of contribution A contributor is entitled to tax relief on his contributions in the year following the year of contribution provided he is assessed as a tax resident in that year where the contribution is to be allowed. EXEMPT
Supplementary Retirement Scheme Assumptions: Starting Income $2,000pm, ROI 6%, General Inflation 3%, Income growth 5% Contributions grow tax-free, and only 50% of the withdrawals is taxed at the then-prevailing income tax rate
SRS withdrawals Under certain circumstances, SRS savings can be withdrawn with penalty. However, 50% of savings withdrawn will be subject to income tax if you 1. withdraw your savings after achieving the statutory retirement age prevailing at the time you made your first SRS contribution 2. withdraw your savings upon death 3. withdraw your savings on medical grounds – physical or mental incapacitation 4. full lump-sum withdrawals by Singapore Permanent Residents (PRs) who have cancelled their PR status and have been a non-Singaporean or a continuous period of 10 years preceding the date of withdrawal have maintained their SRS account for a period not less than 10 years from the date of first contribution to the SRS account. 5. full lump-sum withdrawal by foreigner who has maintained his SRS account for a period not less than 10 years from the date of first contribution to his SRS account. Under all other withdrawal scenarios, you will be taxed 100% of the withdrawn amount. This applies also for withdrawal upon bankruptcy and withdrawal before the statutory retirement age prevailing at the time of the first contribution.

SRS withdrawals At Statutory Retirement Age, SRS balances can be withdrawn in 10 yearly installments. 50% of each annual withdrawal will be taxed at the prevailing income tax rate
Supplementary Retirement Scheme Assumptions: Starting Income $2,000pm, ROI 6%, General Inflation 3%, Income growth 5% Based on the hypothetical closing values presented earlier: An equal annual withdrawal of $124,511 can be made for 10 years Of the $124,511 drawn down, only 50% (or $62,250) will be subject to income tax Based on tax rates today, that would mean that about 90% of his annual withdrawal will remain intact This equates to about $34,400 per annum in today’s value

This includes researching, comparing and shortlisting the various instruments available for this purpose. You will also have to put in place an implementation schedule Putting your plan into action Review your plan regularly, as well as track your progress.
Setting your Retirement Goals What do you envisage your retirement to be like? What would you like to do? How would you like to live? With whom would you be living with?
Common Misconceptions in Retirement There’s always time to prepare for retirement, I can do it when I’m in my 40s or 50s I will earn more, so be able to save more, when I am older I voted for the government, so they must take care of me CPF Life or the Minimum Sum will be sufficient for my retirement I do not need as much in retirement as I do now when I am actively working. I will live simply My children will take care of me
How Much is Enough The more relevant question is “how much do you need?” Your need is determined by: The type of lifestyle you would like to have – everyone has a different expectation and it determines the periodic amount you want Dependent or Independent Financial Freedom or Financial Austerity Should it include a regular holiday or only focus on survival? The period you want to provide for How long do you want to provide for. Better safe (longer period) than sorry (shorter period)? All else being equal, does your family have a history of long life?
How Much is Enough Consider your potential expense pattern: Which expenses will increase/decrease? Ongoing Mortgage repayments? Debt repayments? Which current expenses will disappear? What possible new expenses will be needed? (Grand)Children Education? What other sources of funds will you have during retirement? CPF/SRS? Support from family (not usually considered due to its uncertainty) Sale of home (future values are uncertain, and costs involved in selling/buying of homes may be significant) Do you want to leave anything behind for your loved ones? Legacy and Inheritance Wills and Trust How far along are you towards building your retirement fund? How much resources have you already set aside for this? How much more do you need to commit?
Key to Successful Retirement Increase Funding If possible, increase your sources of income, especially passive income Reducing impact of expenses Expenses can only be estimated within certain margins Use of risk management instruments to mitigate impact of unexpected expenses – Medishield, Eldershield, Critical Illness and Personal Accident
Funding your Retirement Expenses How much should you provide for expenses when you retire? 1. Rule-of-Thumb: 60% of your last drawn income just before retirement, or 2. Expenses that you incur today, adjusted for expected increase in medical expenses and possible reduction in lifestyle expenses (the net amount adjusted for inflation) Consider also new expenses arising during old age as well as existing expenses which will no longer be necessary Bear in mind that your lifestyle during retirement may not change very much from that which you currently enjoy
Quantitative Techniques When solving for problems involving retirement funding, the Present Value of Annuity Due is frequently used. Annuity Due is used because each “income” drawn from your retirement fund is required at the beginning of each year (assuming that you use an annual budget)
Quantitative Techniques *Please refer to Text, p463
Case Study 1 Gilbert, a manager aged 30, reckons that he will need $2,000 every month (in today's value) when he retires at age 65. Given his family history, he believes he will live to 90 years old. How much retirement funding would he have to accumulate when he reaches 65 years of age? (assume ROI and Long-Term General Inflation Rates to be 5% and 3.5% respectively)
Case Study 1 (con’t) Step 1 – Determine the Future Value at age 65 of Gilbert’s current estimated annual retirement amount Step 2 – Determine the real rate of return (of inflation adjust return) for Gilbert’s retirement fund (between his age 65 to 90)
Case Study 1 (con’t) Step 3 – Calculate Gilberts Retirement Funding using the future value of his estimated annual retirement requirement as his annual income Note that the FV of Gilbert’s requirement at age 65 (FV 65 ) has become the annual income requirement for his retirement, PMT 65,and the interest used is the real rate of return, i=1.45%
Case Study 2 Gilbert already has $150,000 invested in various instruments, and he estimates that his overall yield to be about 5%. Advise Gilbert if he will be able to reach his retirement target (previously determined), and if not how much more he must save annually to be able to do so. (assume ROI and Long-Term General Inflation Rates to be 5% and 3.5% respectively)
Case Study 2(con’t) Step 1 – Determine the Future Value at age 65 of Gilbert’s current investment portfolio Given that Gilbert needs $1,691,907 to retire, and that his current portfolio will grow to only $827,402, Gilbert still has a shortfall of $864,502
Case Study 2(con’t) Step 2 – Determine how to make up the shortfall of $827,402 One way to do this is by additional annual contributions to his savings which will be invested at his current (comfortable) yield to make up the difference. To find the annual savings, we manipulate the Future Value of Ordinary Due* formula *Please refer to Text, p59 This means that in order for Gilbert to make up his shortfall, he will need to save an additional $9,161 every year, and invest it instruments which will yield a minimum of 5%pa
