What is your starting salary when you first started contributing to CPF? Can you give us a feel of what was your starting salary, and so we can gauge how achievable it is for which group of income?

$1000? $2000? $3000? And not just say things like "I am not from a well to do family", "everybody situation is different" kind of vague answer.

Thank You! I saw the talk. While I agree that we can choose to live frugally, but to some this is simply not a choice. A dip holder graduating today (staring pay around $2300) should be able to achieve $0.5M at retirement on today's value. But this also means that below this level, there are people struggling.
