Surviving Retirement : Surviving Retirement By: Ieuan Dolby The financial security umbrella that most wage earners would like to shelter under after retirement is now leaking very badly indeed! Money savvy experts block up news channels and advertisement spaces with offers of transforming the average citizen into a healthy, wealthy and wise investor; advocates of 'parting with your money' do house calls alongside those selling vacuum cleaners and the sole 'wanted' letter fights for attention in the mail box amongst the hundreds of once-in-a lifetime offers of richness! News these days is very negative regarding government pension schemes! They blame it on either too many old people one day, not enough young people the next! The answer we are told is "Go Private"! Private pension funds are collapsing left right and center! Directors, Managers and Chairmen of companies tend as a rule to do one or more of three things with employee's pension funds. They decide that the amount is too great to give back and so move to a remote island with no extradition treaty and eat caviar and drink champagne without moral conscience creeping in.
