Four Benchmarks to Keep Your Retirement Finances on Track / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

When I was still a young buck out in the workplace, financial magazines periodically published worksheets for calculating when you had enough money to retire. The process became much easier when we got our first PC. Programs like Microsoft Money had a retirement planner tab where you entered your personal data, and the program did the calculations for you.

Don’t Plan on Being Retired Very Long / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

I don't know which is worse: realizing you cannot keep a promise you made to someone who was important to you, or being the person who relied on the promise when you finally grasp that it is not going to be kept.

In 1973, I was 33 years old, just getting started as a public speaker in a career that would span another 30 years. I was asked to join the National Speakers Association and became a charter member. Our first president was the late Bill Gove. Bill was a terrific speaker and also a great salesman—one of the top life insurance salesmen in the country for many years.

Dark Days Continue for UK Savers / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

Inflation figures released today show the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) fell from 2.9% to 2.8% during July.

To beat inflation, a basic rate taxpayer at 20% needs to find a savings account paying 3.50% per annum, while a higher rate taxpayer at 40% needs an account paying at least 4.66%.

A Lousy Investment that May Be a Good Source of Income / Personal_Finance / Investing 2013

By: Don_Miller

One of the biggest challenges facing retirees is how to bridge the gap between ever-rising expenses and virtually stagnant Social Security checks and other sources of income. While we are all finding ways to be more frugal, many folks still fall short every month.

Death Taxes - Don't Make the Same Mistake Tony Soprano / Personal_Finance / Taxes

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: We were all shocked by the sudden, untimely death of James Gandolfini. Gandolfini was an immensely gifted actor who changed the face of television entertainment in the role of Anthony "Tony" Soprano, a deeply troubled gangster-in-therapy, who had to balance obligations to his family... and his Family.

By all accounts, James Gandolfini was generous and kind to family and friends alike. It has been reported that he left a large legacy, in excess of $70 million, to be divided between them. His net worth is an estimate, and his asset inventory hasn't yet been disclosed, but he did alright for a middle class kid from North Jersey.

The Most Dangerous Myth About Retirement Investing / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: The most dangerous myth out there right now is that Treasuries are the key to safe wealth building.

Forget about Fed Chairman Ben Benanke's latest palliative.

This misconception will turn your nest egg into a pile of sticks faster than you can say quantitative easing.

Will You Still Work When Retired? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

You may have heard the popular legend about Eskimo tribes sending the elderly off to die at sea. As the stories go, when grandpa and grandma could no longer hunt or earn their keep, the younger folks would put them on an iceberg and ship them off. Fewer mouths to feed gave the younger generations a better chance at survival. I shudder at the thought.

Best Cash ISA Savings Account for Least Stealth Inflation Theft from UK Savers / Personal_Finance / ISA's

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Mark Carney has just taken over from the Mervyn King as Governor of the Bank of England, or should I say SIR Mervyn King who as is always the case was rewarded with a knighthood for his failures at the Bank of England because rather than to be held to account for his part in the ongoing banking catastrophe that has yet to see any bankster's go to jail for the financial crimes of the century that literally brought the country to its knees as evidenced by the greatest drop in GDP since the Depression that followed the First World War.

Student Loan Debtors Bamboozled Again / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Money_Morning

Tara Clarke writes: I know a lot of you out there don't have sympathy for student loan debtors who complain about their debt.

You see it as a matter of personal responsibility - they chose to sign a contract and so should suck it up and uphold their end of the deal.

How to Make the Most from the Changes in the U.S. Housing Market / Personal_Finance / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

Moe Zulfiqar writes: The housing market in the U.S. economy has gained a significant amount of attention. Even my old friend, Mr. Speculator, who likes to make big bets for bigger gains, told me it’s a good time to buy a house, saying “the prices are cheap, and they are only going higher from here.”

What’s certain is that the U.S. housing market has seen an uptick since the home prices hit bottom in early 2012; but is it on the path to real recovery, or is what we are seeing just a minor bounce?

How to Avoid the Pitfalls of Variable Annuities / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Last year consumers purchased $200 billion in annuities. On top of that, there are currently $2-3 trillion in annuities already in force. With all the variations, options, riders and strategies available, it's easy to feel lost. At Money Forever, we aim to simplify complex financial topics. To that end I’m going to share a case that jumped out at me as we researched our special report on annuities. The evaluation process used here translates to any sort of annuity you may encounter; its information you can keep in your back pocket and draw on when annuity salespeople try to overcomplicate products and make predictions sound like guarantees.

Are Annuities the Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread? / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: Don_Miller

Well, no, but they do make sense for some investors as part of their portfolio. However, we have to shop wisely and not allow sales agents to push us into the wrong products just to fatten their own wallets. Unfortunately, that makes some folks shy away from something that could help them make their money really last a lifetime… or longer.

How to Get Out of Student Loan Debt / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Money_Morning

Tara Clarke writes: Anyone wondering how to get out of student loan debt - or wondering if a slew of student debtors could try to do so - needs to read this.

Exposing the Secret to Wiping Out Student Loan Debt in Bankruptcy / Personal_Finance / Student Finances

By: Money_Morning

Tara Clarke writes: Accepted wisdom says that there are only two (rather sobering) ways to relieve the burden of student debt: either pay it off, or depart from this earthly world.

Until now.

On May 22 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals wiped out $58,000 in student loan debt for a former law student in bankruptcy proceedings, sending shockwaves through the formerly impervious facade of student loan debt performance.
