As American human rights activist Malcolm X once said, “The future belongs to those who shape it today.”
If the past 22 months have taught the world anything, it’s that no one can predict or control the future. While it’s impossible to know what the future holds, you can certainly prepare for it and plan for it – for yourself now and for your future generations.
With Singaporeans living longer and healthier lives, the amount of funds needed to support the golden years will increase. Singapore led the world in life expectancy in 2020 with an expected lifespan at birth of 83.9 years.
For many Singaporeans, CPF savings – and its annuity schemes – form the foundation of their retirement plans. But Singaporeans tend to overlook other ways to improve their financial situation and plan for retirement.
Take, for example, an insurance savings plan that complements investment portfolios and retirement plans.
As inflation fears increase, keeping money in the bank is no longer ideal since inflation rates that exceed low interest rates erode the value of those savings over time. Investing in the financial markets has also become much trickier.
These factors make whole life insurance savings plans that protect against life’s vagaries, while providing a lifelong monthly income stream, a suitable option for one’s financial and retirement plan.
Whole life savings plans have another unparalleled benefit: contributing to the financial well-being of future generations.
