1 in 7 over-65s are still working! This is what I’m doing to offset the low State Pension

Royston Wild | Tuesday, 19th May, 2020 We all dream of living the Life of Riley when the time comes to hang up our work gloves. It’s not just the hope of having more free time that the ‘9 to 5’ grind currently prevents us from having. It’s having the financial freedom to pursue your goals, helped (if not necessarily dependent upon) the State Pension.There’s a growing wealth of evidence that suggests many of us will end up being left behind though. Recent State Pension rule changes mean that Britons have to wait longer and longer to receive their allowance from the government. Not that the benefit provides much to shout about. The rate of annual rises have trailed the growth in the cost of living in recent decades.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…Still in workAs a consequence, more and more of us are having to stay in work for longer. It’s a worrying phenomenon that’s been laid bare by a fresh Sun Life study released today.According to the financial services giant, almost one in seven (or 15%) of over-65s are still working today. Some 24% of these are employed full-time too, while 39% are working part-time. And almost a fifth (18%) are working more than one job.Alarmingly, Sun Life’s data shows that 40% those over-65s still in employment do so because they fear not having enough in savings, investments, and pensions to provide them with sufficient income for retirement.Offset the State PensionThings are clearly difficult for Britain’s pensioners and things threaten to worsen further following the coronavirus crisis. I recently wrote about the ‘triple lock’ mechanism and explained how minimum guaranteed rises in the State Pension could soon go extinct, for example.Sitting on your backside and hoping the government will take care of you in your old age is dangerous business. It’s why I’m building a portfolio of top-quality stocks to help me receive a nice income a few decades from now.I don’t fancy having to continue working into my 70s like a growing number of Britons have to do. And by investing in share markets — a strategy that can create annual returns of up to 10% on a long-term basis — there really is no reason why any of us should have to remain in employment, irrespective of what State Pension levels will be, or when we can expect to receive it, now, or in the future.Go stock hunting!A lot of people go wrong by saving their money using low-yielding cash products. It’s better than not setting aside money at all, of course. But the prevalence of rock-bottom interest rates means you’re unlikely to make a big return on your money. In fact, the interest you make is likely to be wiped out by the inflation effect.Buying stocks is a much better way to try and live a comfortable retirement. And the recent sell-off across global share markets leaves a wealth of excellent shares looking criminally-cheap at today’s prices. I, for one, am on the hunt for some brilliant bargains with which to boost my investment portfolio. It doesn’t matter what your attitude to risk is. There’s a broad spectrum of stocks of all shapes and sizes to help you achieve your retirement goals. 1 in 7 over-65s are still working!

Is the Deliveroo share price dip a buying opportunity?

Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. The Deliveroo (LSE: ROO) share price has been a consistent underperformer since the company’s IPO at the end of March. Indeed, the company has the unfortunate label of being one of the most unsuccessful tech IPOs in recent memory. It’s even been referred to as the “worst IPO in London’s history“. The company was launched with a market capitalisation of £7.6bn. But it’s worth just £4.7bn today. I think these figures say a lot about what the market thinks of the Deliveroo share price.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…But is this an opportunity? If the company continues to grow, as it has done over the past five years, I think it could be. Growth potentialThere’s no denying Deliveroo is a growth champion. Over the past five years, the company has grown from almost nothing into a multi-billion-pound business. Sales have surged over the past few years, thanks to an influx of new customers. The trend only accelerated last year. According to the company’s first-quarter trading update, the number of orders placed on its platform in the three months to the end of March increased 114% year-on-year. In addition, the monthly active user base on the platform increased 91% year-on-year to 7.1m users. The problem is, the company has struggled to turn this growth into cold, hard cash. The group is unprofitable and is relying on its cash reserves to fund losses. At the end of the first quarter, the Deliveroo had £1.5bn in cash, and cash equivalents, as well as access to a £150m revolving credit facility.It’s difficult to say how long this cash balance will last. In 2020, a record year for the group in terms of order value, it lost £226m. Based on that level of losses, the company has enough funding for at least five years, possibly longer. Deliveroo share price risks I think Deliveroo’s growing losses have spooked investors into selling their shares in the company.Unfortunately, the firm may continue to haemorrhage cash. The food delivery sector is incredibly competitive, and Deliveroo has to fight off better-funded competitors such as Just Eat and Uber. The longer it takes for the company to reduce its losses, the higher the chances are it will run out of cash. With that being the case, I plan to avoid the Deliveroo share price for the time being. However, I’m going to be keeping an eye on the enterprise over the next few months.As the UK moves on from the coronavirus pandemic, I think it’ll be interesting to see if the company keeps its new customers. If it does, it may be a sign these customers are here to stay. That would give management more flexibility to increase prices and reduce marketing spend, which would help margins and profitability. Therefore, while I’m not a buyer of the stock today, I could be in the future if the firm’s figures improve.  Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Just Eat Takeaway.com N.V. and Uber Technologies.

She died as a result of her extensive and traumatic injuries.Last week, a jury at Limerick Coroner’s Court returned a verdict of accidental death after a two-day hearing into Ms O’Brien’s death.Limerick Coroner John McNamara had been told by Mr Collins in his evidence that he engaged the reverse gear, checked his mirrors and windows as he slowly moved off.However the jeep stopped after a few feet and he felt the wheels lift upwards. When he got out, he saw that Mrs O’Brien was trapped underneath.He told the court that he did not see her when he started reversing and that his reversing sensors and camera “didn’t show up anything”.PSV inspector Garda Redy said he found no defects when he inspected Mr Collins’ 2010 registered jeep but noticed that a reversing camera took between 14 and 26 seconds to engage if the jeep was put into reverse from a parked position.Forensic collision inspector Garda Conor McDermott said there were no indents on the jeep’s bodywork to suggest a heavy impact. The only areas he could clearly determine had struck Mrs O’Brien were the rear passenger wheel and the underside of the jeep at the rear axel and wishbone.He said there was “insufficient evidence to suggest that the pedestrian was upright,” and that Mrs O’Brien, who used a walking stick, would be classed as a “vulnerable road user”.Ms O’Brien would have “offered no match for the jeep”.Witnesses said Mr Collins was left traumatised at the scene in the aftermath of what had happened.The jury at Limerick coroner’s court returned a verdict of accidental death.This week it has emerged that Conor O’Sullivan initiated High Court civil proceedings against Mr Collins for personal damages.See more Limerick news here WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Proceedings have been initiated at the High Court against Steve Collins NewsHigh court proceedings initiated against Steve Collins over accidental deathBy Staff Reporter – October 23, 2017 7989 last_img read more

After students finished the sixth grade a bus took them to school in Troy. She graduated from Troy High School in 1961 and her memories of Sessions School would be foreign to today’s high school graduates.“Sessions School had an outhouse and was heated with a potbellied stove,” Jordan said. “The only light that we had was a bulb on a drop cord and we didn’t turn it on unless it got real dark. It will be a lot of fun to sit around and share our memories.”Those attending the reunion are asked to bring old photographs and any memorabilia from the school.“Lunch will be provided at the school for a donation or, if you’d rather bring a dessert, that will be fine, too,” Jordan said. “It would be very helpful in preparing the lunch if we had an idea of the number that will be coming.”The numbers to call to RSVP the Sessions School Reunion are Shirley Brabham, 566-3216; Linda Floyd, 243-5450 and Gail Jordan, 566-6035.Although a response is appreciated it is not necessary.“We just want all students of the old Sessions School to join us for this very special reunion,” Jordan said. The more the former students thought about the reunion the more determined they became.So, a Sessions School reunion has been planned for Saturday, Nov. 1, at Sessions School.“We are attempting to locate as many former students as we can,” Jordan said. “The only registers that we have are from 1940 through 1958 and that’s not nearly all the people who went there.

Union heralds a new partnership between employer and worker

first_imgSir Ken Jackson believes that new super-union Amicus will change the shapeof employment relationsA new union with a million members opened for business on New Year’s Day. Two unions have merged – the Amalgamated Engineering and Electrical Union(AEEU) and the Manufacturing, Science, Finance (MSF) – to create Amicus. Amicus is the ancient word for friend, supporter, partner and wisecounsellor. We shall be membership based, relying on an industrial structure ofworkplace-based activists, with huge conferences and ballots of the membersbacking up day-to-day activist democracy. The new union has a huge mandate of support with members voting by more thanfour to one to set up Amicus in a massive ballot. What will be the implications of our new union for the HR profession? Most importantly, we shall have the resources to support our workplacerepresentatives. They will need a new depth of support to give our membersauthoritative advice on the many issues thrown up by the global economy.Accomplished and confident reps are needed in the modern process ofconsultation, with managers needing to be coolly challenged on theirunderstanding of the business by staff who have the company’s future at heart. Amicus will also have the best trade union education service in the UK andthe best research, pensions, lifelong learning and lobbying facilitiesavailable. Our assets are valued at more than £100m and our annual income will exceed£66m. We include over 110 MPs and MEPs as members. The new union expects to build on more than 200 AEEU and MSF recognitionsuccesses, which in 2001 included companies as diverse as Virgin Atlantic,Tibbett and Britten, Penguin Books, Saudi Arabian Airlines and Honda. Amicus’ breadth of appeal is based on the positive competencies we can bringto the party. We don’t instinctively trade on managers’ petty tyrannies – realor imagined – but prefer to trade on our practical services. All of this is available to the employers we deal with. We shall be theunion of partnership both with employers and employees. Our partnership approach is not a tactical manoeuvre, but a preferred way ofindustrial life. It is not a new word for deference either. Partnership will promotemutual help, respect and deliver better work from people because they feelvalued. One of our biggest challenges will be to boost productivity through skillsdevelopment. Our representatives will all be taking advantage of skills andprofessional development at every level of business. We shall do our bit and spend around £4m of our own money to show companiesthat our dedication to skills reform is not just rhetoric. The newly launched union is not the finished article. We are already inmerger talks with other British unions that will make us the biggest union inthe UK. Our structures are robust enough to welcome every group into our fold. Everyone of our initial 21 industrial groups will have its own consultationprocesses, yet every group will be able to call on the best full-time officersand general support services available. As the largest affiliate of the Labour Party, we have immense politicalinfluence in Brussels and Whitehall alike. With professional and skilled members in both the private sector and publicservices, we effectively represent the attitudes of the UK workplace – we areBritain in microcosm. We are determined that our new strength is placed at thedisposal of this country’s economic reform and future success. I am looking forward to introducing Britain’s management teams to Amicus –your new friend.

She has participated in two major international maritime exercises, represented the UK at the International Indian Fleet review, and conducted numerous boarding operations resulting in one major drugs bust, while carrying out her primary role providing air command and control support to two international carrier strike groups in the Gulf.Last month while working on counter narcotics and counter terrorist operations the Type 45 destroyer intercepted a suspect fishing dhow off the south coast of Oman.After the dhow was secured by a Royal Marines boarding team with the support of HMS Defender’s Lynx helicopter, a Navy search team seized over a tonne of hashish being trafficked across the Indian Ocean.The ship has travelled 47,538 nautical miles, the equivalent of going more than twice around the world. To cover this distance, she has used 10,551,000 litres of fuel, enough to fill 4.2 Olympic-size swimming pools.It’s not just the ship that requires fuelling. During the deployment the 248 sailors on board have consumed 75,600 eggs, 19,000 kg of potatoes, or the equivalent of 16 mini Coopers, and 54,720 sausages weighing 3420 kg, which would cover three miles if laid end to end.Commanding Officer Steve Higham said: “As Captain, I could not be prouder of the men and women who have worked alongside me over the last 18 months and particularly over the course of this deployment.“Every Sailor, Royal Marine, Airman and Soldier who has served in Defender has been bold, confident and extraordinary, confident that what we have done here has made a difference and that we have directly contributed to the national security of the United Kingdom.” View post tag: Royal Navy Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Navy destroyer returns from Middle East center_img Royal Navy destroyer returns from Middle East July 7, 2016 Share this articlelast_img read more
