Retiring is never easy, especially when you love your job. But it is necessary. For one thing, you want to give younger employees the chance to rise through the ranks and you can’t do that when you’re holding onto your position. For another, you’re getting older and the time has come for you to relax and enjoy the freedom that you’ve worked so hard to earn. You deserve the time off.
Receiving your first salary is exciting. For the first time, you’re earning your own money. And there’s nothing quite like the feeling when your first paycheque arrives in your bank account. But, of course, you probably won’t earn as much as you’d like when you first start out. You’re starting out at the bottom and your salary reflects that.
Many people believe they don’t need hospital insurance in South Africa. They think they’re in good health now, they’ve never been particularly sickly, and illnesses and disease don’t run in their family. So, they think they’ll never need hospitalisation. They think it’s an unnecessary expense because they’ll never use it.
