These Top 9 Terrifyingly Spooky Retirement traps serve as a point of reference so that you too don’t face a dauntingly scary retirement planning experience…

  1. Due to the recent economic downturn, baby boomers born between 1948 and 1954 will need to save an additional 4.3 percent of their annual pay to counteract the impact of the financial and housing crisis in 2008 and 2009, according to Employee Benefit Research Institute calculations. For many people this will require working beyond traditional retirement age in a job market already tight and challenging for older workers.

 

  1. 57% of workers have $25,000 or less in savings and investments, excluding the value of their primary homes and benefit plans, and 28% of workers have less than $1,000 saved.

 

  1. Among retirees, 55% have $25,000 or less in savings and investments, and 31% have less than $1,000.

 

  1. Just 50% of workers and 52% of retirees said they could come up with $2,000 if an emergency or unexpected need occurred within the next month, while 28% of both groups said they probably or definitely could not produce $2,000, if needed.

 

  1. The percentage of workers saying they’re “not too” or “not at all” confident in their ability to pay for basic retirement expenses is 29%, while 52% are “not too” or “not at all” confident they have enough money for basic post-retirement medical expenses and 62% are “not too” or “not at all” confident they can pay for long-term care expenses.

 

  1. The top five reasons workers gave for planning to delay retirement were the poor economy (25%), lack of faith in Social Security or government (21%), inadequate finances or inability to afford to retire (21%), a desire to make sure they have enough money to retire comfortably (16%) and change in job situation (13%).

 

  1. Debt also weighs heavily on Americans when they consider their retirement, as 55% of workers and 39% of retirees reported having a problem with their level of debt.

 

  1. Almost half, 47%, of current retirees were forced to retire early, mainly because of disabilities, poor health, the loss of a job and the inability to get a new one.

 

  1. According to the Employee Benefit Research Institute, 46% of all American workers have less than $10,000 saved for retirement and 29% of all American workers have less than $1,000 saved for retirement.

Retirement Software Company donates 25% from all July 4th sales of RetirementView software directly to the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP)

Retirement Software Company donates 25% from all July 4th sales of RetirementView software directly to the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP)

(Newswire.net — August 1, 2013) Marietta, GA — Torrid Technologies, Inc. proudly announced it’s confirmed contribution to the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). The donation made is 25% of all Torrid Technologies software sales from both the Memorial Day and Independence Day weekends. The final donation was sent on July 16th directly to Wounded Warriors. The decision to donate such a substantial percentage of sales was made by Torrid Technologies’ interim CEO, Tim Turner. After an overwhelming response from the Torrid Technologies customer base, in support of the initial Memorial Day weekend donation effort, Turner made a determination to extend the effort to the Independence Day weekend as well.
The Fourth of July, or Independence Day, is a federal holiday that celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Memorial Day, the American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Many cities and towns hold parades on Memorial Day in honor of military heroes, as well as current military personnel and members of veterans’ organizations. “There was such an amazing response from our community for the Memorial Day Wounded Warrior Project donation drive. It only made sense to do it again during Independence Day.” says Tim Turner, one of the founders of Torrid Technologies. “We wanted to do something real to help those that have served our great country, but have been wounded from that service. Our company is proud to honor our injured service members by giving a portion of our sales over both weekends to the Wounded Warrior Project.”
In honor of our veterans and military personnel, Torrid Technologies decided not to just have another Memorial Day or Independence Day sale, but decided to find a way to truly help some of our veterans that are still living. This lead to Torrid Tech’s decision to donate 25% of its Memorial Day and Independence Day weekends’ software sales to the Wounded Warrior Project®. The Wounded Warrior Project website outlines its vision “To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history”, a vision fully supported by the Torrid Technologies company.
“Although we aren’t selling the traditional Memorial or Independence Day items, we still feel the need to do our part, Even though we are a software company, we want to do what we can to help our wounded warriors on Memorial Day and Independence Day,” he adds.

The Wounded Warrior Project’s stated purpose is to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members. Some of the programs it offers to serve warriors and their families include a “Combat Stress Recovery Program”, job training and transition, as well as family support services.
Although Torrid Tech’s RetirementView software is not military specific, it can be used by anyone to plan their retirement savings and to determine when you will run out of money in retirement. Since 1993 Torrid Technologies has offered their software to the public to help people plan for their retirement. The latest version of the software, RetirementView 2013, is available for consumers and professional financial advisors. It’s billed as a “Quick, Simple, and Visual” retirement income planning tool that anyone can use to create a basic retirement plan, even those that are not that good with a computer.About Torrid Technologies:
