Why You Need Retirement Classes?
Only 5 percent of all Americans are financially independent at age 65. This sobering fact comes from a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Commerce. In addition, this study also indicated that 75 percent of all retirees are forced to depend on Social Security, family and friends as their only sources of income. Americans can expect to receive only 40 percent of their pre-retirement income from Social Security. Most financial planners suggest that retirees will need at least 75 percent of their pre-retirement pay, to ensure a comfortable retirement. That means the remaining 35 percent (75 percent, if Social Security fails), not provided by the U.S. government, will have to be provided by individuals using pension funds, savings or investments. Thus, every worker must learn about finance and investing.
There are several ways to educate yourself about finance and investing. Traditional education vehicles include - books, magazines, and classes. New education vehicles include - Online classes (Webinars or Webcasts), electronic newsletters, and web sites. Several national organizations provide quality online, as well as, traditional classes. One such national organization is BetterInvesting (www.betterinvesting.org), also known as, the National Association of Investors Corporation (NAIC). Another is the American Association of Independent Investors (AAII) (www.aaii.com). In addition, we have plans to offer financial education Webinars to its subscribers via partners.
