I was a union member for 20 years and I missed my pension for 2.5 years. Because of being withdrawn from the union when I reached my age of 62.5 I was not aware that I qualified for 100%pension benefit then. The union did not voluntarily informed me of this provision, I have to wait another 2.5 years till 65 years old to retire.

The bank will inform you before the maturity date of your cd. 401k administrators will make you know that you must take your minimum distribution.SSS will make sure that you file for your benefits on time. But Union administrators DON’T _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _!

Saving does matter. Specially in this critical time of high inflation and high unemployment rate. I also believe it to be important to invest wisely at some stage. I do suggest that government takes adequate steps to educate people about finance and investment. People need to know well about the available investment opportunities, trends, risks and how to avoid those risks.

Thanks for pointing on it.

I remember as a kid to start investing in yourself. This should start with $10, $50, $100 a month. Whatever it is would be beneficial as long as it is constant. Many today do not think the $50 is worth it and will not look to save for the future at all. I totally disagree.

Also another key to keep in mind is this. It’s not how much you make, but it’s how much you save. Save, take a deduction, invest in yourself.
