Singapore does not care about its olds This is a myth and must be debunked. Singapore has done so much for the ageing population that we should be considered as one of the most creative in this area. We have made provisions in the CPF to make sure that all of them retire happily with a big cache of cash, at least $140,000 in their retirement and medisave accounts combined. And there are many benefits for the senior citizens like cheaper fares for public transport and medical fees. We have built specially designed flats with grab poles, emergency buttons etc at very cheap prices. And if that is not enough, we may even buy some pacific islands and turn them into senior citizens paradise. Now, not good enough? We even have a minister specially designated to look into the problems of the ageing population. And he is one of the finest and experienced ministers in the cabinet. He may know not much about this field, but he is taking it very seriously. He is now on a world tour to visit the best facilities to learn from them, first hand experience. By the time he is back with all the new knowledge and information and formulas, our ageing population problem will be solved. So no one can accuse the govt for not spending money and effort to look after our senior citizens. Some even got free money, like $260 a month to spend freely. And these are those without the $100k plus savings. It is a good life for the senior citizens. Those who want to work until they die, jobs are aplenty. They can work in food courts or in high offices, depending on their talents.
