Should We Retire Early?

05-Aug-22 21:00

Kam Raslan | Azmyl Yunor | Michael Gong

Azmyl Yunor and Michael Gong return as a duo to face Kam in another episode of A Bit of Culture. Azmyl Yunor starts the conversation by talking about the informal economy in the form of live spaces and how they're marginalised by the authorities. Michael Gong then puts his Morning Run hat on and asks the gang whether early retirement is really worth it. Kam then ends the show by pondering about how our bodies are not actually built for the modern age.

ks55 Should you work until 70? 65? 60?
How many years you wish to enjoy before your body still good enough?
Not to forget many people retired at 55 15 years ago and enjoy life at 70 today.
If you retire at 60, the most you can have able body till 70.
If you work until 70, you will hardly have any chance to enjoy life.

Sslee The question, can you afford to retire early?

Look at today cost of education how much you need to spend for your children education.
My colleague daughter is doing medical in UK and the cost is more than RM one million

Sslee I continues working past my retirement age because I am now at peak earning power and feel sorry for my children pay which my one month pay equal to their many months pay.

So I intend to work for some more year to help my children to buy their dream home.

Tobby SsLee! Your daughter's friend should consider working in UK after she graduate! It's not worth for medical doctor to study in UK and work here! Unless she is specialist where the salary should be reasonable! There are glut of general doctors in Malaysia! What is needed are specialists!

Tobby Those who consider to retire early are those who already made it big and already made a fortune! Like those in tech industry where talents can earn big money but also tends to burnout early as well!
But for those who work in 9 to 5 industry earning barely enough, i say you should work as long as you can! You don't have a choice! Can you afford to retire when your EPF can even support you for a year!
