Firm grip on an empty bag? This is how many Americans find themselves when the subject is retirement. Long gone are the days of the “defined-benefit” retirement plans. We are in the midst of a “retirement tsunami” for the baby-boomer generation and the lack of preparation for many in this group. According to the Social Security Administration, “94% of baby-boomers are unprepared for retirement. The reason for this is, that many think of “retirement” as an age and when they get to that “age” they can take a deep breath and relax because it is smooth sailing from then on. For many Americans, the idea of retirement is just that; “an idea.” Lessons from recent history: the Enron scandal, the Worldcom scandal, massive lay-offs, and the list goes on. What’s left? Misplaced responsibility. For far too many people; retirement is thought about when their options are limited. They never get around to securing their retirement because it is simply not thought about. Wake-up America! “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world — no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” -Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve into existence.Planning for the future has always been important and there is no more valuable way to prepare for it than by making sure our finances are in good order.
