Only 3% Of Malaysians Can Afford To Retire

EPF chief strategy officer Nurhisham Hussein recently stated that only 3% of Malaysians can afford to retire on their EPF savings. We unpack this by first looking at what this means for seniors with no savings. Then, we discuss how EPF can improve, and what other systems we could incorporate. Finally, we look at the importance of planning for your retirement.
