Should You Buy an Pension Annuity? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

In simple terms, an annuity is a contact between a person and a company. The person gives the company a sum of money, and in return is promised a monthly payout, generally for the rest of their life. There are many cases where annuities make sense for retirees or folks planning to retire soon. At the same time, there are risks and situations where annuities are the wrong choice.

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: If you have a 401(k) chances are you're getting ripped off and you don't even know it.

With all of the associated 401(k) fees, the truth is you could be losing as much as 33% of your retirement nest egg to the financial advisors who run your plan.

The Cold, Hard Facts Behind Funding Your Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Many folks are afraid they simply won't be able to retire – or stay retired – when and how they planned. We can talk about retiring later, taking a part-time job, and cutting back on expenses, but those are only partial solutions. Of the seniors who are still working, very few are earning as much as they did at their peak. Their life savings still needs to make up the difference.

I receive a lot of letters from very concerned baby boomers and retirees who are watching their principal erode every year, but they don't know what to do about it. Unfortunately, some have unrealistic expectations.

UK Savings Catastrophe - Best Cash ISA? There Isn't One! / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The consequences of the Quantum of Quantitative Easing (QQE) is one of systematic theft of wealth from savers / bank depositors by the government and banking sector, unfortunately this trend is intensifying and unlikely to change for at least another year as illustrated by announcements every other month such as the extension of the funding for lending fraud, that looks set to continue to bleed depositors dry in the run up to the May 2015 general election as an desperate, fractious Coalition government will first attempt to bribe the electorate by spending money the country does not have or in the final analysis given a poor standing in the opinion polls decide to follow follow Labours example of 2009 (Labour Governments Bankrupt Scorched Earth UK Economy for the Conservative Government ) by handing the next Labour-geddon government an even more scorched earth bankrupt economy.

Why Are So Many Seniors Still Working? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

By Dennis Miller Go into any fast food restaurant or retail store and you’ll find a lot of seniors working for minimum wage. Here’s why.

When personal computers hit the scene, numerous retirement-planning programs quickly became available. You entered your personal financial information, along with yield and inflation projections, and the computer would tell you how long your retirement nest egg would last.

Retirement Nightmare: Underfunded Pensions Want to Chop Your Benefits by 60% / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: Unions, employers and the federal government have finally come up with an answer for the nation's underfunded pension plans, many of which are headed for bankruptcy.

Take the money from the retirees.

The proposal would erase the guarantees created under the 1974 Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and allow underfunded pension plans to reduce monthly benefits for both future and current retirees.

A Second Passport for Ultimate Wealth Protection / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Casey_Research

Louis James: Doug, a lot of our readers have asked about getting a second passport. I realize this is a large and complex issue – several issues, actually – but would you care to go over the basics of where to go and what to do? And for those not already thinking about this, why?

Doug Casey: Sure. We've talked quite a bit about the increasing urgency of getting some of your assets out of your home country, especially if it's the United States. We've talked about having stores of precious metals in safe places abroad, and setting up bank and brokerage accounts abroad as well. I've said that safest way to store wealth abroad is to buy property, which can't be seized by your home country without an act of war. The purchase of real estate solves several issues all at once.

The Great Money Migration, Is Holding Cash Criminal? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Bill_Bonner

Back in the USA, stocks rose again yesterday. The Dow finished up 128 points. Gold fell $25 per ounce yesterday... and everybody seems to think it will be going down forever. (A word of caution: probably not.)

Last week, we went to São Paulo, Brazil. There, too, we found taxi drivers who knew a lot more about monetary crises than the typical US economist. Said one:

Best Cash ISA Savings Account for New Tax Year 2013-14 / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The new tax year commenced today, which brings a small reprieve for UK savers to at least protect themselves from the 20% to 40% theft (double taxation) on savings interest payments, even though that it is highly unlikely that any accounts will be able to beat the real inflation rate which tends to be about 1.5% above CPI or currently about 4%.

Wealth Management Retirement Strategies to Reconsider / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Whitefoot writes: From home repairs, to fixing cars, to crafts, publishing, and decorating—in a do-it-yourself culture, nothing is out of bounds. Thanks to low interest rates and underperforming assets with terrible returns, many who are on the cusp of retirement are looking after their own retirement plans in an effort to boost their retirement income. Meanwhile, those already in retirement are looking for ways to sustain their savings.

Danger in Your Bank Account / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The thinking behind GoldMoney’s business model was that there might come a time when prudent savers would want to protect themselves from the twin risks of a global banking crisis and a loss of purchasing power of paper currencies. The first of these two risks is now upon us, and it is important that everyone with savings to protect is aware of what is happening to banks and their bank accounts. By the time this is fully understood by the media it may be too late to act.

What Cyprus Taught Me About Retirement Savings / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Whitefoot writes: In light of the events that occurred in Cyprus over the last couple weeks, many investors may be wondering if it’s safer to hide your retirement savings under a mattress. After all, what’s to say it couldn’t happen here?

In June 2012, Cyprus, like many members of the European Union (EU), sought a bailout after suffering heavy losses. The company’s banking sector was hit by the economic crisis that crippled Greece. Cypriot banks had made loans to Greek borrowers that were worth 160% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP).

The banks in Cyprus have been closed since 18th March with each proposed date for re-opening of the banks with strict capital controls being extended every few days as the Cypriot central bank enacts its policy to steal depositor funds to the tune of 40% of deposits of over 100,000 euro's in at least Cyprus's two largest banks.

Fed’s Actions Makes for a Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: On the surface, the Federal Reserve’s objective is to make sure America doesn’t fall into ruins. Following an aggressive strategy of monetary easing, the end result is interest rates at nearly zero percent and an endless flow of easy money. As I have already stated many times in these pages, the Federal Reserve has created an artificial economy.

Cyprus Bankruptcy Contagion Financial Armageddon Risk, Santander Down for Maintenance? / Personal_Finance / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst Cyprus's banking system remains frozen and teetering on the brink of collapse with it's politicians literally battling to meet an eye popping deadline to agree to the terms of a euro-zone bailout, the consequences of failure should not be construed as just being limited to Cyprus as the whole euro-zone and even the whole of world's banking system is at risk.
