At this age, its not going to be financially wise to buy insurance. You could help them by understanding their spending and seeing which areas they can save on. Start them with a savings plan for the future, and consider topping up their cpf for tax relief and for them to use after they retire as well.

This depends on what you plan to do with the money and how long you want to keep it for? If there are no big ticket items coming up soon and you don't need the money urgently you can consider investing the money or ssb to start growing your nest egg.

Hi, I believe study loan rates are better than personal loans from the bank.

Hi Anon, I think the only way to protect yourself would be to say no to your dad if the request is too much for your budget. As your father, I hope he would understand if you explain nicely about how difficult it is going to be for you to save up for important life purchases. Try to find a balance between being filial and taking care of yourself and your future.

I aim to reach financial freedom before I turn 60. I hope to get consistent income streams that will be able to sustain myself in retirement. Some obstacles that I foresee might be health or other unforeseen issues that will impact my ability to work or find a job.

Definitely pick the Maybank eVibes so that you don't need to think too much about spending categories and hitting a minimum.

The DBS Vickers Young Investors program is for people 18 to 20 years old, and has lower commission. I would recommend you to look for an alternative monthly investing account instead, which has a pretty low minimum amount per month.

Hi, I would recommend you to go for cashback, especially if you're not going to be spending a big sum. This would definitely give you easier and faster returns.

Hi, glad that you are thinking about saving money at your age. With the school fees, it's going to be difficult to really stick to the 50-30-20 rule, and you don't have to. For now, focus on saving up for the school fees. Calculate how much the fees would be, and whether you will still be working part time after you start school. Try to spend prudently and save the rest.
