Is RM1 Million Enough To Retire In Malaysia?
Malaysians must have at least RM900,000 to RM1 million if they plan to retire in 20 or 30 years, according to the Employees Provident Fund’s (EPF) chief strategy officer Nurhisham Hussein.
The Star quoted Nurhisham as saying that the amount would be the ‘bare minimum’ after accounting for essentials like medical expenses and inflation.
He calculated that individuals would need around RM600,000 for proper retirement in Kuala Lumpur.
Some netizens said Nurhisham’s advice was out of touch with reality and not helpful because few Malaysians could afford to have that much.
