Any difference? Financial Independence at 50/60 may mean that our children are likely to be independent soon. We may not need larger investment portfolio to generate larger investment income to fund our household expenses. We can also include asset draw-down as cash flow at the latest stage of our life as the gravestone is not that many years away! Many will be able to reach financial independence in their 50/60 if they are willing to include asset draw-down strategy as part of their sustainable retirement income for life.
I am 60+ yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has retired @ 60 on 30 Sep 2016.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 and now becoming full-time retail investor. So I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I have two sons and one daughter; two working adult children and the youngest son is currently in his 1st year SUTD.
I am currently executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038
