drbubb Posted January 15, 2013 Report Share Posted January 15, 2013 Pensions: Rewarding the Prudent (& Lucky) in Old Age I attending a presentation this morning that made me aware that many people may have inadequate savings for their later years, and those that "come up short" are expecting some help from the government That may be possible when a small percentage of our population is over retirement age, but as that percentage grows, it will be more and more difficult for the government to shoulder this burden. Years, even decades ago, retired people would turn to their children for help, but many of those children are also less willing to accept that responsibility. Are there any WISE ANSWERS for this dilemma ? Also, the problem looks different (more serious or less, more urgent or delayed) in different countries.
