Answer by janice h
If you have been married for 10 years she is entitled to half of your retirement and you are entitled to half of hers. Don’t try to be deceptive her lawyer will be on the look-out for anything you try to hide. That is just the way it is.

Q&A: How do I begin planning for retirement?

Question by jim j: How do I begin planning for retirement?
I have absolutely no idea what I am doing with my finances. Currently, I am 20 years old and I was told that I should start planning for retirement no later than 25.

I hear so many different terms, but I cannot decide what I should do with my money. I have a job currently and I am not sure what to invest my money in. I heard that I can put my money into a 401k plan, diversify stocks, invest in an IRA or even a mutual fund. Personally, I have no idea what the difference in each plan is no matter how much I read.

Basically I would like to know one thing:

What can earn me the most money when I hit age 40, 50 or even 60?

You are lucky if you are being offered both.

Best Retirement Savings?

Question by Erika: Best Retirement Savings?
What programs are good for retirement? I don’t want to really invest my money like in stocks… like a 401k… do I have that all wrong?
Basically, I want a savings account to put my money away and add interest. Sounds right?


Best answer:

Answer by STEVEN F
First you need to understand that a 401(k) is NOT a type of investment. It is a SHELL that protects investments from taxes.

Next you need to understand that a savings account it NOT an investment. You will be lucky if the interest is enough to make up for inflation.

If you wish to build enough wealth to live of of in retirement, you MUST either invest in something that will actually GROW in value, or save close to half of your income. The second option is rarely feasible.

I recommend LEARNING as much as you can about investing. Good mutual funds and Real Estate are usually the best long term investments outside of CREATING your own business.

retirement planning… is 1 mil reasonable?

Question by Who am I?: retirement planning… is 1 mil reasonable?
I subscribe to several financial magazines and the perennial topic is always retirement planning. Many pro’s suggest a $ 1 million savings for a couple to be fully prepared for retirement. I find this absurd. Assuming we retire at age 60-65, how could anyone possibly think that over the next 15 years (God willing) we could need $ 1 mil!! (That estimates out to around $ 100,000 per year salary!) After all, the kids are out, the mortgage is paid, and needs and wants are certainly lower than in middle age.

Now don’t get me wrong, DH and I are savers and for our age group I know we have better long term savings than the majority of our peers. Additionally, DH will have a pension. But still, I get frustrated when I read the advice. So can someone explain the thinking behind a $ 1 mil retirement plan in terms that I can more fully grasp?

Best answer:

Answer by Chris Z
OH YEAH, 1 MIL is enough for a big retirement.

I left my former employer was to distribute my retirement funds in April 2011, however they keep saying they are waiting for the check, it has been over 120 days and I keep getting the runaround, I can sue them or take them to labor board in California.

Best answer:

Answer by FozzieBear
Call the labor board. I’m sure there’s a maximum amount of days they have to give you the funds.

For such a serious question, don’t trust the answers you get in a forum like this.
