The Death of Pensions

Pension Crisis - The death of pensions

It’s happened; in fact it’s been coming for a long time 

The traditional pension as we know it is dead. Today we can no longer rely on the traditional pension to provide a comfortable retirement; it may not even provide a retirement income at all. Millions of people are becoming aware of this fact. On a daily basis we will speak to dozens of people who have come to this realisation and have been forced into taking alternative action.

State pension is enough

Put simply it’s not! Can you live off £140 per week? Most people would struggle, particularly with rising food and heating costs. What’s more, the state pension is no more than an elaborate Ponzi scheme. Many people wrongly conclude that the money we are paying into national insurance is creating a state pension fund for future years. In fact the money goes directly to people who are already retired, none of it is put aside for future years. This system in its current form is unsustainable as we are an aging population and there will not be enough working people to support an ever increasing number of retirees, causing a pension crisis.


The budget, the pension robbery & the papers.

Budget 2012 & Pension Crisis 2012

Today the front pages of the newspapers are crying foul. Apparently George Osborne and the government has robbed us of  any chance of retirement

The papers have dubbed it as a “granny tax” but that suggests it’s an immediate problem for the retired. The truth is people retiring now will have it much better than future generations. Cutting through the hype this budget may leave some pensioners £245 worse off each year.

One of the most important blogs I’ve written

November 3rd, 2011|

Most of this country is illiterate – financially illiterate. We are one of the most advanced nations in the world but when it comes to financial education we are living in the dark ages.

Our education system provides a wide ranging curriculum that covers a diverse range of relevant subjects but it fails every single child by neglecting to provide lessons in financial management and responsibility.

The majority of children leave school equipped with the ability to work out long division but have no concept of money management, wealth creation and debt management. […]

You must take action before it’s too late!

The Pension Crisis is here take action now.

It’s not nice to admit, but there are people who have approached Rescue my Pension that we’ve been unable to help.

These people who have worked all their lives, done everything they have been told to financially by ‘respected’ institutions and have found themselves in a horrible predicament. I am of course referring to people who have already retired.

Most people will only realise how bad the pension crisis is after they have retired. They will then contact us and although we may be able to make some difference and pass on some advice, in reality they have left it too late, as there are no quick fixes.
