IS SOCIAL SECURITY ENOUGH?
Do you have a plan to ensure you have enough monthly income after your retirement? If you are one of the fortunate few that worked at a company that offered a pension after retirement, you’re much better off than the majority of working class citizens.
Have you looked at your social security benefits projections? If not you can create an account at https://www.ssa.gov and you will see your yearly earnings since you’ve been working and your approximate monthly check if your retire at 62 or age 66, the full retirement age.
Once you create an account with Social Security and analyze your earnings and possible benefits at retirement, you may realize you need to make some adjustments to ensure you have enough monthly income when you stop working if you haven’t already.
THE IMPACT OF INFLATION
Because the price of necessities like food and utilities continue to increase year after year, some retirees will have to face the facts and go back to work after retiring from their first job, at least part-time. The federal government is aware of inflation and makes annual adjustments to social security benefits so retirees can keep up with price increases of products and services.
THE IRS AND YOUR BENEFITS
Of course the earlier you save the better off you will be because of the time value of money. Remember the money earned in your 401k is tax-deferred, not tax free. Warning! The IRS will be there waiting once you start making withdrawals to get their share of your hard-earned cash.
ACTIONS YOU CAN TAKE.
Maybe you should put more money into your 401K or other investment every time you get paid in order to supplement your social security and or retirement savings. With the economy down because of the pandemic, there are definitely opportunities in the stock market that could possibly create some massive profits in the long run. Consult with a financial planner for best advice and ask about stocks or mutual funds that may generate a good rate of return to supplement your retirement income.
CONSIDER AN ONLINE BUSINESS
I retired from the corporate rat race at the end of 2016 and started looking for business opportunities to supplement my retirement and maintain a decent standard of living while knowing inflation would take a toll. One of the things I did was get some training on becoming a Day Trader. I took a course and learned a great deal about the stock market and making profits in a short period of time, sometimes seconds.
Being a Day Trader is not for the faint of heart! You can make a lot of money fast and you can also lose a lot of money fast. It takes discipline and having some rules to follow to minimize losses without getting emotionally involved. One day I saw my mentor make $38,000 in a couple of hours. The next day he made $40,000! In two days he made more than most people make in a year. As a rookie even I made $3,800 one morning before 9am in pre-market. The stock market bell rings at 9:30am EST.
