Tabung persaraan mana lagi baik?

KWSP, PRS, PENCEN, ENDOWMENT

What happened? From April 2011 onwards, local housing allowance was massively cut from covering up to the median level of rents, to only cover up to the 30th percentile of market rents. Here is a map of how this affected households in terms of expected losses per week. 3/..
