If You Get These 3 Things Right, You’ll Never Have to Worry About Money / Personal_Finance / Financial Education

By: Jared_Dillian

You have some money. Do you pay down the mortgage, or do you invest in the stock market?

You can use math to make this decision, but math is not much help because there is uncertainty.

  • The stock market allegedly returns 8%, but sometimes a lot less.
  • Your house will hopefully appreciate, but by how much? Nobody knows.
  • And what are interest rates going to do?
  • It also mostly depends on where you live in the country.
  • There are tax implications to residential mortgages.
  • Your own behavior is also uncertain—it depends on your risk tolerance and fear of the downside.

This Formula Will Tell You How Much You Need to Retire—and It May Be More Than You Think / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Jared_Dillian

How much money do you need to retire? Ask Google!

The first page gives you a wide range of numbers, mostly between $1 million and $2 million.

Of course, most people retire with less than that. They make it work.

Here’s my advice: stop thinking about retirement in terms of absolute numbers. It is all relative.

One of my longtime readers, Neile Wolfe, of Wells Fargo Advisors in Austin, TX has an elegant solution to the problem.

Tax Avoidance Bills Sent to Thousands of Workers / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

The HMRC sent out tax avoidance bills to thousands of workers recently, and it is having an impact as a result of loan charges. The result is seeing an emotional and ugly battle brewing between NHS and IT contractors who say that the demands for additional tax are destroying their lives and the tax authorities who claim they have avoided paying taxes.

At heart is the 2019 Loan Charge which is meant to claw back unpaid taxes from those that the HMRC claims used disguised remuneration schemes that were in place since 1999. Some of those receiving bills are massive and will literally wipe them out. One of those who worked in IT for years is said to have been hit with a £400,000 avoidance bill and will now be left with little choice but to declare bankruptcy.

Land Rover Discovery Sport vs Multi Story Car Park - First Time Parking! / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: HGR

So far I have gone out of my way to avoid parking my Land Rover Discovery Sport, large SUV in a multi-story car park for the obvious reasons I don't want to end up getting the sides or bumbers scraped or worse getting stuck especually as many of these multi-story car parks that dot the landscape were constructed when cars were signfiicantly smaller, where now it's definetly not straight forward to park a large 7 seater SUV, that and this being my first attempt means I made the whole process that much more difficult by failing to follow the arrows properly.

The European Health Insurance Card: The Facts that Matter / Personal_Finance / Travel & Holidays

By: Dylan_Moran

Good quality healthcare is still a huge issue being tackled by many countries around the world. But for residents in European Union member countries, quality healthcare is now made more accessible through the European Health Insurance Card. This card is granted to citizens either free of charge or at a reduced cost where card holders will get access to medical treatment in 31 EU and EEA countries during a temporary stay. The card replaced the E111 card after it was discontinued in 2005.

The EHIC, however, is taking the spotlight again but this time, due to concerns over its validity after the UK exits the EU. This means that the EHIC will only work for UK citizens until March 29, 2019. But while the decision whether EU health card holders from the UK can continue to use its privileges or not, let’s take a closer look at all the facts that matter when it comes to the European Health Insurance Card:

Credit Card 0% Deals Cut Down to Combat Debt Crisis / Personal_Finance / Credit Cards & Scoring

By: MoneyFacts

Customers looking to switch their debts from one interest-free balance transfer deal to another will now have less time to repay their debt before interest applies compared to a year ago. In February 2018, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) introduced new rules to tackle the issues surrounding persistent debt and gave providers until September to adhere.

Since then, research from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that the longest deal available today on 0% introductory balance transfers is 32 months, down by five months since this time a year ago, when the longest was 37 months. This is a steady decline in lengthy deals and seems set to continue.

Here’s The Real Reason You Stress About Money / Personal_Finance / Debt & Loans

By: Jared_Dillian

People get really stressed out about money.

Money makes people cry. Money causes people to lose sleep. Money causes marriages to hit the skids.

So how to not stress about money? Drink decaf? Yoga? Meditation? None of the above.

Having more money is not the solution either. Lots of times, more money causes more stress, not less.

In the sage words of The Notorious B.I.G., “Mo’ money, mo’ problems.” The people who stress about money with $10,000 in the bank would be stressed with $1,000,000 in the bank.
