Thinking about retirement? Think again

Yet another poll indicates that many Canadians are unready for retirement.

by

Online only.

The bad retirement news just keeps coming. Last week, BMO released the results of a survey indicating that older Canadians are unprepared for retirement. Today, an Ipsos Reid survey conducted for the Canadian Institute of Actuaries reports exactly the same thing.

42% of Canadians older than 45 consider themselves unprepared for retirement, says the poll, and almost the same number hadn’t sought any financial advice — not even in a book.

And while many Canadians are working to retire early, one in five poll respondents expects that they’ll never be able to retire fully.

  2. When I was 45, I gave little thought to preparing for retirement. I was freshly divorced and focusing on getting laid instead. I squandered money in my quest for that holy grail, that's on top of the expense of alimony & child suppor. Big mistake. Should have stayed married instead of thinking there were greener fields to plow.

  3. The best advice I every got was from a co-worker 20 years who lent me the book "The Wealthy Barber". I believe this book should be mandatory reading in Grade 12. My kids have both completed a course in highschool called "Enterprise" which teaches money management among other topics. I have always had the thought of "pay myself first" to control my own destiny.

  5. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  6. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  7. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

However, if you possess cash there to make the purchase completely, then, paradoxically, this is the best time just to be able to use the cards for several reasons.
