I used to gave my mom every month $500-$800 cash and pay her phone bills and some other bills. She has a full time job and long story short, I found out that she’s not been saving up the money I gave to her and instead spending on unnecessary stuffs. Now I stop giving her the cash and instead I use the money to top up her Special Account. Calculate how much more to hit the minimum sum when she retire and top up every month accordingly. I told her I will start to give her cash again when her CPF start paying out the monthly Retirement Sum. This way you don’t need to worry she anyhow spend and no money to retire, all burden falls on you.
I started with 20% of my take home and have managed to keep it to that level so far.
