Retirement might seem an improbable topic for a group of young Nanyang Technological University students but they have embarked on a campaign to help adults chart their plans for life after working life.

They realised that, among them, their parents - and many of their friends' parents - who are approaching retirement do not know how they will spend their time after they stop working. This drove them to start a campaign called Ready or Not? Singapore that aims to raise awareness about retirement needs and help people between 50 and 65 to prepare for life after work.
