  1. If you know how much money you need in the bank to comfortably retire, you're in the minority: Only one in 10 people makes such a calculation, according to the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies. That might explain why, on average, Americans are on track to replace 60% or less of their income during retirement. Financial advisers generally agree that retirees need to replace 80% or more.

  2. Thank you, Pitter Jon, for your comments. I have read on a number of occasions that most Americans are not saving enough to replace 80% of their income, as you suggest they need. I have seen for myself that this means that some Baby Boomers are having to move in with their children or drastically reduce their standard of living. I hope that more people will start taking action now to protect their future income.

  4. Retirement planning should be a key objective for working people but many people seem to be tuning out.

  5. family first believe that whatever wealth we have, whether as individuals or as a nation, it is a gift to be shared.Nearly half the world's population live in poverty with incomes of less than $2 a day. Their struggle however is not just a financial one but one that involves holding at bay the twin perils of hunger and disease. At family first we believe that the plight of the poor, whether in Australia or in other parts of the world, is a collective responsibility and that “to whom much is given much is required”.
