39 Careless Ways Retirees Waste Money

frank lamjus

You’ve worked hard all your life, so you deserve to enjoy yourself in retirement. However, when you live on a fixed income, it’s important to keep track of where every dollar is going and not spend money carelessly. I spoke to financial experts and business leaders to find out the most common ways retirees waste money — so you know what not to do and can make better decisions that enable your retirement savings to last well into your golden years.

A financial advisor can be a great asset when it comes to retirement planning, but make sure you’re not paying them higher fees than you need to be.

“Investment fees can run 1-2% of your assets. For retirees with a million dollars invested that’s $10-20k a year,” said speaker, writer, teacher and financial coach Jillian Johnsrud. “If you’re only getting an hour check-in per year, that’s an expensive phone … Read More

MOSCOW, May 3 — A special pipe-laying vessel that could be used by Russia to complete construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to Germany has arrived in the Baltic Sea, a Reuters witness said today.

The arrival of the Academic Cherskiy suggests that the pipeline project remains a priority for Moscow despite US sanctions on Russia.

The Nord Stream 2 pipeline was designed by Moscow to increase gas supplies via the Baltic Sea to Germany, Russia’s biggest energy customer. Russia’s energy ministry said in December that the pipeline was expected to be launched before the end of 2020.

Footage taken by Reuters from the coast showed the Academic Cherskiy idle

Harrisburg is looking to significantly boost a fund that is offering grants of up to $10,000 to small businesses.

At Tuesday night’s City Council work session, city officials said that another $1.25 million soon may be injected into the Neighborhood Business Stabilization Program.

“We would look forward to expanding our partnership with Impact Harrisburg and have a round two of funding,” said Marc Woolley, the city’s business administrator.

Over the past two weeks, Impact Harrisburg, a nonprofit formed as part of the city’s 2013 financial recovery plan, has been accepting applications for the program, which offers grants of up to $10,000 to help city-licensed small businesses survive the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, according to Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse, the need for assistance quickly exhausted the $1 million pot of money, funded evenly by the

KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — The Securities Commission (SC) has issued a call for assistance from the public to establish the whereabouts of a wanted person in connection with offences under anti-money laundering laws.

In a statement today, SC said Wong Shee Kai also known as Ricky Wong was wanted under the Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Terrorism Financing and Proceeds of Unlawful Activities Act (AMLATFPUAA) 2001.

The search today followed a warrant of arrest issued against Wong by the Kuala Lumpur Magistrate’s Court on Dec 27 last year, for failing to appear before the SC’s investigating officer as required under the law.

“If found to be in breach of Section 32 (3)(a) of the anti-money laundering law, Wong will, upon conviction, be liable to a fine not exceeding RM3 million, imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years, or both under Section 32(8) of the same act,” the statement said, adding they

LONDON, May 4 ― Premier League clubs are bleeding money and their finances would be entering “uncharted waters” if the season that was suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic is not finished, Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish has said.

Professional football has been suspended since mid-March due to the coronavirus outbreak which has killed more than 28,100 people in the United Kingdom, and the league is no closer to a return after a meeting with all 20 clubs on Friday.

The loss in revenue has forced some clubs to furlough their employees while others have agreed wage cuts with their players.

Parish said he was convinced the proposals laid out for the restart would protect players, staff and officials and that the financial plight

White House adviser will not rule out more money for states, small businesses

frank lamjus

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Sunday he would not rule out anything in a new relief bill to ease the “tremendous hardships” of the coronavirus outbreak, including more money for state and local governments and small businesses.

More than 30 million Americans have joined the unemployment benefit rolls over the past six weeks and lawmakers on Capitol Hill are discussing a fourth coronavirus relief bill.

Democrats are pushing for additional aid to help cities and states cope with lost revenue from a shut-down economy and some governors have warned of massive layoffs if they fail to get it.

Some advisers to Republican President Donald Trump have said the need for another stimulus bill is not yet clear. But Kudlow said “there may well be additional legislation” as officials study how the billions included in the last bill take effect.

“We know the economy is
