When I'm 64 The New Retirement

When I'm 64 The New Retirement

Author: Donna Gibbs Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 26/10/2019

We think of retirement as something to be celebrated, even envied, a time when you are finally free to do your own thing. But what do people do for twenty or thirty years without the structures and restrictions of work? Does it mean someone is no longer important if they are not an active member of the workforce? Or is retirement a time for reinvention and refocussing? When I'm 64 explores the experience of retirement from the point of view of those not yet retired, those newly retired, and those who are further down the track. Donna Gibbs' conversations, insights and reflections on her own experiences offer a window into the new retirement with all its contradictions and complexities. With warmth, humour and insight she shows the upsides and downsides, the challenges to your sense of identity and issues for couples and singles. It is an inspiring guide to the ways people deal with this new phase of their lives.

Retirement Reality Check How to Spend Your Money and Still Leave an Amazing Legacy

Retirement Reality Check How to Spend Your Money and Still Leave an Amazing Legacy

Author: Josh Jalinski Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/08/2019

How many of us follow the same advice our grandparents followed: contribute whatever we can to our 401(k) and hope it's enough when the time comes to retire? Millions of Americans did just that and in 2008, after years of saving the conventional way, the market crashed and took their entire nest egg, seemingly overnight. Josh Jalinski, host of the popular Financial Quarterback (TM) radio program, offers his proven system for a SWAN (sleep-well-at-night) retirement that works for people in all stages of their careers. Retirement Reality Check challenges fifty years of conventional retirement planning with fresh strategies tailored to today's volatile economic climate: The old warhorse 401(k) is great but nowhere near enough for most retirees and definitely not reliable. It's okay to spend some of your IRA money before you are 701/2. You can spend a lot more than 4 percent a year of your savings when you retire. Don't shun annuities and whole life insurance policies; use the right ones and use them cleverly. Retirement should be a time to enjoy family, friends, and travel, without worrying about your financial security. Josh Jalinski shows you how to maximize your retirement spending, while still having something to leave behind to your loved ones and favorite causes. It's time create a new paradigm, one that will stand up against market volatility and be there when it's time to enjoy the years you worked so hard for. Do you have enough saved to enjoy your retirement? Will you be able to fund your bucket list? Are you prepared to for the tax increases and medical bills that come with retirement? In this practical new guide, Jalinski guides you through his proven system for planning for a secure retirement that lets you enjoy your money, including: Tax-saving strategies to maximize the amount of money you have available to spend on experiences, travel, and expenses Understanding the right investment mix, depending on your individual circumstances How saving cash and different life insurance options help you weather volatility and ensure you can pass wealth on to family members

Social Security Disability Background, Benefits and Programs

Author: Michael Dimitriadis Format: Hardback Release Date: 10/07/2019

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides benefits to nonelderly workers and their eligible dependents if the worker paid Social Security taxes for a certain number of years and is unable to perform substantial work due to a qualifying impairment. Chapter 1 provides an overview of the DI trust fund and its current financial outlook. Chapter 2 discusses the rules and processes used to determine eligibility for SSDI and SSI. It also explains how benefit amounts are computed, the types of non-cash benefits available to individuals who meet SSA's disability standards, and how each program is financed. Chapter 3 analyzes the relative importance of factors affecting SSDI benefit receipts and terminations over the past 30 years. Chapter 4 examines what is known about how coverage and key features of SSDI and PDI compare, and the potential implications of three distinct proposals to expand employer-sponsored PDI on the Disability Insurance Trust Fund and various stakeholders. Chapter 5 examines trends in SSA's transfers and processing times of appealed cases over the past decade, SSA's monitoring of efforts to meet processing time goals through case transfers, and any challenges SSA faces in transferring cases between offices. Chapter 6 is the statement of Elizabeth Curda on SSA disabilty programs.

Author: Robert Bor, Carina Eriksen, Lizzie Quarterman Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/10/2018

Retirement is a comma in our lives, not a full stop. Life After Work looks at the psychological, emotional and wellbeing issues that surround this complex and important transition in life. This book suggests that retirement is a life stage over which we may have greater control than previously thought; it no longer has to be the case that retirement is a terminal point, a time where you became sedentary and inactive. Retirement is on one level a private, individual matter that affects one's sense of self and purpose, physical and mental processes, as well as financial security or provision. On another level, retirement has an impact on relationships with loved ones, family and friends, as well as colleagues. It can strengthen or disrupt bonds, leading to new bonds being formed or to withdrawal. This book is written by successful authors and psychologists Robert Bor, Carina Eriksen and Lizzie Quarterman, each with many years' experience of helping people cope with life stage changes and prepare for retirement. It contains illustrative case studies throughout, from which valuable lessons can be learned, and draws on the very latest psychological research and techniques to provide a blueprint for planning and living a wonderful retirement or life post-work. Planning for your future is crucial in enabling you to maximise the opportunities available. Following the book's blueprint will help you prepare for this phase in your life, and the sooner you start the better. Life After Work will be of great interest to readers of all ages seeking guidance on retirement and will also appeal to psychologists of life stage changes.
