I’m too old? I don’t earn enough? I don’t know how… here are some really valuable tips for saving for retirement!
Johannesburg, South Africa (23 June 2022) – In a recent survey conducted in January 2022, the majority of South Africans indicated that they save less than 15% of their salaries, while 35% indicated that they don’t save at all.
This means many South Africans will not be able to retire (or else have to lower their standard of living considerably) as there will not be funds to rely on. This scenario usually paints a gloomy picture, as people will have to work for longer or become dependent on their children.
Discovery is hoping to change that mindset for future leaders of tomorrow, and I cannot shout loud enough how important this campaign is!
Jennifer Arendse from Discovery has joined us today to chat about retirement and how Discovery hopes to help us!
