Saving for Retirement

Monday, Feb, 22 2016

Who doesn't dream about a life without the daily grind of work? Sleep in. Do what you want when you want. Stay up late because you don't have to set an early alarm. Travel on the spur of the moment. Sounds good, doesn't it? But the cold, hard reality is that it takes cold, hard cash to make it work. So while you're dreaming of that day, you had better save, too. And to that end, Fidelity Brokerage Services says a good rule of thumb is to save eight times your ending salary in order to fund 25 years of retirement. You do that by setting goals. Fidelity suggests the following:

    By age 35, you should have saved 1x your current salary.
    By age 45, you should have saved 3x your current salary.
    By age 55, you should have saved 5x your current salary.
    By retirement, you should have saved 8x your ending salary.

8 Revealing Everyday Documents You Never Knew You Should Shred

Thursday, Feb, 18 2016

Boarding passes
Shred them after you land: Your boarding pass has your name, your travel plans, and a bar code that free websites can decipher. This code often reveals your frequent-flier number, which crooks can use to log in to airline accounts to view upcoming travel plans, check in to flights, and even cancel trips.

Prescription labels
Whether stapled to the Rx bag or on the bottle, these labels may list your name, the date of initial dispensing, the name and strength of the drug, and the dispensing pharmacist’s name. Thieves may use this info to refill prescriptions or steal your identity.

Shred all receipts you don’t save. Those from credit card purchases reveal the last digits of your card number and possibly your signature. Crooks can also use receipts for fraudulent returns and benefit from your store credit.

Pet medical papers
Keep records of major events, and shred the rest. Papers from a vet visit show a pet’s name—which a Google Apps survey of 2,000 people found is the most common password choice.

Return labels
Shred free return labels you receive in the mail, along with any envelopes with your name and address. Thieves often pair this with what you post on social media (family member names, work history) to piece together your identity. When writing your return address on an envelope, omit your name.

Don’t toss resume copies or drafts without shredding. Resumes hand crooks your name, phone number, address, email address, employment past, and education history in one convenient piece of paper.

Extra birth announcements
Children are 51 percent more likely to be victims of identity theft than adults. Shred birth announcements you don’t save, which typically have the child’s name, birth date, weight, eye color, and other personal identifiers. If the newborn is yours, don’t accept monetary gifts (like a savings bond) that ask for the child’s social security number—it is often not required to open an account.

Extra funeral pamphlets
Thefts use the identities of more than 2 million deceased Americans every year to apply for loans, open credit card accounts, or file tax returns, collecting billions of dollars in refunds. Shred extra funeral pamphlets or obituaries you don’t save. If a loved one passes, list age in the obituary but not the birth date or mother’s maiden name—these personal identifiers are handy for ID thieves.
