Tackling Higher US Healthcare Costs / Personal_Finance / Healthcare Sector

By: Rodney_Johnson

In 2015, I thought my healthcare renewal statement was wrong.

The premium for my shrinking family of three (two adults and one child) was increasing by more than 30%, to $1,454 per month. My earnings place me out of the subsidy bracket, so these are real dollars out of our budget.

There were plenty of insurance companies to choose from. Shrinking availability was not a problem. It was just breathtakingly expensive.

BY PATRICK WATSON : American stores are dropping like flies. More than 8,600 retail locations could close their doors in 2017, according to a recent Credit Suisse report.

10 Facts That Show Our Taxes Are Worse Than You Thought / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: John_Mauldin

The article I’m highlighting this week will make half of the readers indignant and the other half feel righteously vindicated in their thinking. I have no idea which half you are in. What is so controversial? Who pays taxes and why they should.

The piece was written by Mark J. Perry, whose bio tells us that he’s a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a professor of economics and finance at the University of Michigan. So yes, he is a conservative.

Pensions Are On The Way Out But Retirement Funds Are Not Working Either / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: John_Mauldin

US law provides for many kinds of tax-advantaged retirement plans. They fall into two broad groups: defined-benefit (DB) and defined-contribution (DC) plans.

Defined-benefit plans are mostly the old-style pensions. They came with a gold watch and ensured you some level of benefit for the rest of your life.

Your employer would invest part of your compensation in the plan, based on some formula. In some cases, you, the worker, might have added more money to the pot.

5 Key Steps For A Comfortable Retirement From Former Wall Street Trader / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: John_Mauldin

BY JARED DILLIAN : “Are you good with money?” You hear that question a lot. But, what does it mean?

It means:

  1. Paying your bills on time
  2. Being able to put something aside
  3. Maybe investing it
  4. Fully funding your retirement accounts
  5. Retiring comfortably

It doesn’t matter what you do for a living or how much you make. I know people who have never made more than a five-figure income and are millionaires (true story—more on this later).

Savers Maximise the Personal Savings Allowance for Bigger Returns / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

As a new tax year approaches, savers may well be readying their cash to invest in a new ISA, but the latest research by Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals why savers should still consider maximising their Personal Savings Allowance (PSA) for bigger returns.

Since April 2016, savers have been given an individual Personal Savings Allowance to earn a portion of savings income or interest tax-free, with basic rate (20%) tax payers given a £1,000 allowance and higher rate (40%) taxpayers getting £500. This momentous change means that now most taxpayers (estimated at 95%) no longer pay tax on their savings interest.

With Brexit, the subsequent resignation of David Cameron and the election of Donald Trump as US President, last year was undoubtedly an interesting year for politics. You could make a point that the last 12 months or so have generated more interest in politics than ever before.
