You’re right, thanks for pointing this out. This was an oversight on our part and we’ll make the changes.

Hi, is there a mistake on the saving duration calculation? Using $10k monthly salary, if saving of 10% how can we get to $24k at the end of year 1, and $50k at end of year 2 etc? Base on my napkin calculation with $10k monthly salary and saving of 10% will only yield around $12k savings at the end of year 1, even at 4% deposit rate quite impossible to boost it to $24k by the end of year 1. Please advise

Hi, we used an $8,500 salary and also included the amount that goes into the CPF OA. The 10% savings is of the cash salary as well. We also accounted for the increasing CPF ceiling over the years.
