No savings at 50? You can still double your State Pension. Here’s how

first_img Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now! No savings at 50? You can still double your State Pension. Here’s how Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. It’s natural to start thinking about the State Pension when you hit 50. I did, so looked it up and discovered it’s worth just £175.20 a week.That’s low, isn’t it? The full New State Pension in the UK works out at just over £9,110 per year. Or in monthly terms, a little higher than £759. I’d find it tough to survive on that meagre amount. So, for me, the solution is clear. I need to build up my own pot of money to supplement the state provision in retirement.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Embrace the State pension and match it!Of course, that’s not a terribly original conclusion to arrive at. The internet, magazines, newspapers and other media scatter articles about financial retirement planning like confetti. Everyone, it seems, is banging on about the need to provide for your own financial needs in retirement.But don’t sniff at the State Pension. It has the potential to contribute a big chunk for you in your twilight years. So, make sure you claim it when the time comes. And, if you’re 50 now, your State Retirement Age will likely be 67.However, doubling the State Pension would mean you’d have to find an additional income worth £759 per month by the age of 67. That gives you 17 years to get there if you’re 50 now. And, assuming the ‘worst-case’ scenario, you’ve got no meaningful savings to begin with. And that’s nothing to be ashamed of. The demands on the finances of the middle-aged are the stuff of legend!Meanwhile, one way of drawing your own annual income of £9,110 to match the State Pension is by taking dividends from  FTSE 100 index tracker fund. And I reckon that’s a good way because the Footsie is known for the dividend-producing companies in its ranks. Right now, for example, the dividend yield of the FTSE 100 is running just below 4%. However, the yield is depressed because of the coronavirus crisis, and often runs higher.Shares could be keyBut, assuming a yield of 4%, you’d need an investment in the FTSE 100 worth around £228,000 to generate an annual income from dividends of £9,110. And I reckon the best way to achieve that over 17 years is by investing in shares and share-backed vehicles, such as funds held within a Stocks and Shares ISA, or in a pension wrapper, such as a SIPP.Studies have shown that the long-term return from shares in aggregate tends to run in the high single-digit percentages. So, assuming you can achieve an annualised return of 7% from your investments, we can figure out how much you’d need to invest each month to reach £228,000 in 17 years. I used one of the several online compound interest calculators and it told me you’d need to invest £600 a month to get there.That works out at just over £138 per week. A stretch, maybe, but surely the prize is worth going for. And if you choose your shares and funds carefully, there’s a chance you could achieve a higher return and accumulate your investment pot sooner.

A couple of months ago, a good friend of mine named Toni Williams returned from a mission trip to Kathmandu, Nepal. Her story deeply inspired me to act when I see a need in the world and follow what I’m passionate about even though I’m young.Toni is a 19-year-old who studies at Seminole State College and devotes most of her free time to serving at Lake Mary Church. Lake Mary Church is affiliated with Every Nation Family of Churches, a global organization that helps provide her and many others with an outlet to reach others through mission trips all around the world. Even as a teenager, she has already discovered her desire to become a missionary, stating, “I care about the justice of those who have been treated unjustly. As a follower of Jesus, I want to serve those in need.”When her church presented her with a list of countries she could choose to travel to, she initially decided on Mexico and Australia. However, due to a feeling of uneasiness about her choice she decided to readdress her selection. Soon after, she stumbled upon a documentary about human trafficking which revealed the grave suffering that countless women face in nearly every part of the world. Seeing just a glimpse of what so many people must endure, especially in countries like Nepal, placed a desire in her to do whatever she can to reach their need in any way possible. After seeking advice, doing research on Kathmandu, and praying about her decision, Toni was affirmed to go to Nepal.It was not an easy choice for her to make. Most of the other students at her church going on a mission trip that summer were going to Mexico or Australia. Toni would be the only one representing her home church on the trip to Nepal. In addition to embarking on this journey with people that were virtually strangers, she would be in a place where it is illegal to introduce others to Christianity intentionally.Because Nepal adopted a new constitution in 2007 called The Interim Constitution, they now have the freedom to practice any religion they choose. For that reason, approximately 1.4% of the population of Nepal’s once “Hindu kingdom” proclaim to be Christian. Along with a growing Christian population, many Nepalis in the lower regions of Nepal are converting to Islam.While Nepali people are protected under the law to subscribe to any religion, those who wish to evangelize, or convert the religion of another are in danger of facing punishment. In 2017, the government of Nepal put legislation into place which dictates that no one should be involved in the conversion of religion. The price of breaking this law is five years in prison and in some cases, deportation. It would present her with a higher level of danger than some other countries considering one of the purposes of her trip was to evangelize. But these circumstances didn’t stop her from taking the leap of faith.Upon arrival in Kathmandu, she was presented with culture and struggle completely different from one she had ever seen before. In Nepal, a lot of people in rural areas live in poverty and lack necessities like a safe house to live in, basic transportation, and healthcare. Many girls face high exposure to human trafficking, are abused by their own families, and in some cases are forced to work in the circus with no regulations whatsoever. Because females typically don’t earn money, they can be looked at with little value by their families.It is not to say that Nepal hasn’t made some great and impactful strides towards the equality of women. For about a century now, Nepal has shown efforts towards creating an equal space for women economically and in the political arena as they elected their first female president back in 2015. Their representation of women in the government is increasing greatly, and they are showing more enthusiasm toward gender equality.However, the lives of everyday women are still deeply affected by gender discrimination. The issues stem less from constitutional inequities, and more from deep-rooted cultural issues within family and social structures. Many women in rural areas are still considered second-class citizens.Toni disclosed one case of a young girl that whenever was “injured or sick, the family didn’t care, but if her brother was injured they would rush him to the hospital because boys have value—they are the ones who make income.” She goes on to explain that even after being rescued and put in a safe house, if there was not enough food, her brother was fed, but she wasn’t.At the hotel in Nepal where Toni stayed, she met a girl who planned to move closer to India after being offered a job as a nanny. Toni and her team began to talk to her, and they quickly realized that the girl might have been in more danger than she first appeared. “When we found out the way she was offered the job, we realized it was a set up for human trafficking. So, we convinced her to keep her job there and stay safe that way she wouldn’t be a victim of trafficking.”Encounters like that are not common for anyone, especially such a young person to experience. Toni’s trip to Nepal is not the last of her work abroad. In fact, this is only the beginning. She carries a new perspective with her about less-privileged countries. Even though the people of Nepal do not consider themselves to lack much as it is all they know, “they are very poor in the eyes of an American,” with everything in America being “so easily accessible it’s easy to forget that we’re so blessed.”Toni plans to make an impact in nations all around the world, serving others with every chance she gets going forward. Her impact though, reaches beyond the country of Nepal, even to others around her in central Florida, such as myself. Her courage to do good even amid dark circumstances reminds me that there is no better day than today to extend help and love to others—even when it requires a hard sacrifice. 1 COMMENTlast_img read more

Police use donation from Odessa Study Club for K-9 vest

first_img Odessa Police Department Chief Michael Gerke speaks to members of the media on Monday afternoon at the Odessa Police Department. Gerke talked about the $1,000 donation from the Odessa Study Club to pay for a ballistic vest for OPD”s newest K-9. Cpl. Calvin Tayler joined exclusive company at the Odessa Police Department. The 27-year-old from New Mexico is the fifth officer in OPD’s K-9 Unit. On Monday afternoon, Tayler and his 23-month-old male Belgian Malinois received a gift from the Odessa Study Club to help keep the K-9 safe on the streets. The Odessa Study Club donated $1,000, which will help pay for a fitted ballistic vest for the K-9. “He could end up saving my life and I could save his,” Tayler said about working with his K-9. “It’s a team bond. We work together. “It’s awesome for the K-9 as well because it could save the K-9’s life. They work just like us and we wear body armor. A lot of police dogs are killed nationwide because they don’t have body armor on. It’s a great thing that happened here today.” Rhonda Gilliam, president of Odessa Study Club, said during an interview on Monday afternoon that the 28 members of the group wanted to do something special for their 80th year of existence. The Odessa Study Club collected donations to pay for the K-9’s vest and presented the check to Odessa Police Department Chief Michael Gerke. “We appreciate our officers and we know they need protection and the ones that have the K-9s need protection, too,” Gilliam said. Gerke said the funds to purchase the OPD’s fifth K-9 and the dog’s training were given by 11-year-old Randi Spenser. The 11-year-old raised $17,093.52 by selling hot chocolate, a previous Odessa American article said. The OPD chief said it’s important to protect the investment, like the department would for an officer. “The K-9s are part of our police family,” Gerke said. “They are part of the force and we want to make sure they are protected. We feel that should be protected like the human officers.” Tayler said he’s eager to start patrol as part of the K-9 unit. He said the chance to transition to the K-9 unit was the main reason why he moved from New Mexico to Odessa two years ago. As of June 5, there were 154 sworn officers with 28 openings. Only about 3 percent of active OPD officers are part of the K-9 unit. “I’ve strived to be in the K-9 unit for about five years now,” Tayler said. “When I had the opportunity to apply (in Odessa), that’s when I really started working toward it.” Police use donation from Odessa Study Club for K-9 vest Previous articleMASTER GARDENERS: Warm weather garden careNext articleThe Barcode Story: Its Past, Present, And Future Digital AIM Web Support Facebook Pinterest Pinterest WhatsApp Twittercenter_img TAGS  WhatsApp Twitter Local NewsLaw Enforcement Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 last_img read more
