Survey: 8 Out of 10 OFWS Are Not Saving Their Money For Retirement

Many Filipinos are going abroad for decent salaries which they think will not be possible if they will stay in the Philippines. Local jobs cannot provide adequate income that could meet their daily expenses, bills, payment of rent, mortgage, monthly amortization, tuition fees for their kids, etc. By working abroad, overseas Filipino workers in the Middle East, Europe or in any part of the world can earn much more in lesser time.
But the sad truth is, working abroad will not last for a lifetime. As humans, we will get old, get sick and tired. Sooner or later we will retire and come back home for good. Are all OFWs ready for their retirement? Do they have at least a retirement plan? Do they have enough savings for going home for good?
