Save time, cash with auto pay

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 A: I like your idea, provided of course you pay your credit card bills on time. I like it so much my wife and I have our long-distance, newspaper subscription, Internet service provider and dental coverage plan bills charged automatically to our credit card (the long-distance carrier even discounts $1 a month for paying by credit card). In turn, we pay the credit card balance automatically by electronic funds transfer from our checking account. We save a few bucks a month and lots of time. As you said elsewhere in your e-mail, not all merchants allow automatic payment by credit card. My suggestion (it worked for me once) is to ask those that don’t to start offering it. Q: On the subject of spending retirement funds, I believe those who suggest 4 percent to 5 percent of your retirement nest egg each year are not realistic. You should spend only as much as is needed, and no more, without harming your lifestyle. It may be 4 percent one year or 7 percent another year if a major expenditure is needed such as a new automobile or a special vacation. If you don’t need 4 percent, why spend it? A: When you see those 4 percent and 5 percent figures bandied about, it refers to the maximum amount financial planners believe you can safely withdraw from a retirement portfolio the year you retire. The assumption is that you would increase withdrawals each year to keep up with inflation. Today’s column is not about readers’ questions but about their good comments and thoughts. Q: I’m writing to suggest a way of getting “free money” from your credit cards besides cash-back rewards from everyday purchases. My suggestion is to pay your bills automatically, not with electronic funds transfer from your bank account but with a credit card (one that pays rewards on all your charges). Once the automatic payment is set up, there is no further action required on your part no checks to write or mail. My wife and I use automatic pay by credit card for the long-distance, home and cell phone, and cable and newspaper bills. We have a credit card just for this purpose, which makes tracking and checking for accuracy easier. We then pay the credit card bill online. With this system the bills are paid on time, there is no danger of an overdraft, it saves the cost of postage and mailing checks, and you get rewards and support from the credit card company if there a payment dispute. But I agree with you that many people interpret these numbers as a mandate to spend that much. While I strongly believe that the reason we save is to be able to spend later, there is also no logic in spending more than you need or want. Rather, as I’ve written in other columns, I believe we should manage both our income and expenses in retirement, keeping them as closely aligned as possible. (For example, cashing in some investments or drawing down principal as needed to cover major expenses we may need or want to incur a particular year.) The following e-mail is from Gary Hair, a financial adviser in Eugene, Ore., responding to a column on the ongoing debate over whether to spend now (and supposedly “enjoy the moment”) or save for the future. He speaks wisely: “Encouraging people to save is the first step in creating a society that is free from debt,” he said. “We are a society that is very impatient; we must have everything and we must have it now, at any cost. Unfortunately, it is our future that is being sacrificed. It won’t surprise you how many 50-somethings I meet with who have nothing saved for their retirement and want to ‘get started before it’s too late.’ “I feel bad telling them that time passed many years ago. I will gladly help them save all they can, but it won’t be what it could have been, nor will it be as painless as it would have been if they started 25 years earlier. I don’t take on a defeatist attitude, but I don’t paint a rosy picture either. “I think my best day at work is when I have new clients in their 20s who want to start putting money away for their future. Typically, these are people with very little money to save, but fortunately, they also have very little debt. Their greatest asset is a vision for their future. They just need me to help guide them along.” Humberto Cruz offers personal finance advice each Thursday and answers readers’ questions each Saturday.

Plane hits Tehran building

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Before firefighters extinguished the blaze, flames roared from the roof and windows in several of the upper floors. Panicked residents fled the building. Police held back a crowd of thousands, many of them screaming and weeping, who wanted to find friends or loved ones in the building. Scuffles broke out. To keep the way open for emergency vehicles, police beat back onlookers and those trying to reach the building. Several hours after the crash, the building still was smoldering, with black smoke hanging in the air. “It was like an earthquake,” said Reza Sadeqi, a 25-year-old merchant who saw the plane hit the building. He said he was thrown about inside his shop by the force of the crash. “I felt the heat of the fire caused by the crash. It was like being in hell,” he said. TEHRAN – A military plane loaded with Iranian journalists crashed into a 10-story apartment building Tuesday as the pilot attempted an emergency landing because of engine trouble. At least 115 people died, the Tehran police chief said. The C-130, a four-engine turboprop, crashed in the Azari suburb of Tehran, site of the Towhid apartment complex that is home to Iranian air force personnel and near Tehran’s Mehrabad airport. Everyone on the plane – 84 passengers and a crew of 10 – was killed. Most were Iranian radio and television journalists heading to cover military maneuvers in southern Iran. Twenty-one people in the apartment building also died, and 90 were injured, Tehran state radio said. Only nine of the injured were hospitalized late Tuesday, Talaei said on Iranian television. Witnesses initially said the plane hit the top of the building. But officials, including Police Chief Mortaza Talaei, said one wing of the transport plane hit the second floor as the fuselage crashed to the ground, gouged out a huge crater and caused a fire that spread through the structure. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was visiting Saudi Arabia, sent condolences. “Rescue teams are required to employ their maximum capability to save and help the survivors,” state-run television quoted Ahmadinejad as saying. He asked one of his deputies to take charge and ensure survivors receive the help they need. The plane, owned by the Iranian military, had just taken off for Bandar Abbas in southern Iran when it developed engine trouble. As it headed back to Mehrabad Airport, the pilot was unable to keep it at sufficient altitude, according to state-run television said. The TV report discounted any possibility of sabotage or terrorism. Aviation officials were not available for comment. Witness Iraj Moradin told The Associated Press the plane appeared to be circling the airport when its tail suddenly burst into flames, leaving a smoke trail as it plummeted. He said he fled when he thought the plane was going to crash into a gas station, but turned in time to see it hit the building. The C-130 is built by Lockheed. The plane may have been sold to the Iranian air force when the United States had close relations with Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi before the Islamic revolution in 1979. In April, an Iranian military Boeing 707 with 157 people aboard skidded off a runway at Tehran airport and caught fire, killing three people. In 2003, a Russian-made Ilyushin-76 carrying members of the elite Revolutionary Guards crashed in the mountains of southeastern Iran, killing 302 people. In 2002, a Ukrainian-built aircraft carrying aerospace scientists crashed in central Iran, killing all 44 people aboard. And in 1988, an Iran Air A300 Airbus was shot down by the USS Vincennes over the Persian Gulf, killing 290. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

BetWay Power look to end first round on a high

Namake has also laid 31 assists, a tally bettered by only sharing’s Emma Okumu (330 and Ndejje’s gauthier Badhera (36).However, Power still look favorites as the side won both ties in the regular season last year – Power beat JKL 77-67 in Juky and 63-70 in October.In the other tie, KIU Titans will be aiming to temporarily go on top with a victory over giant slayers Ndejje Angels.KIU takes on Ndejje AngelsBrian Wathum’s Titans have only lost two games this season coming at the hands of leaders Power and Sharing Youth.However, against Ndejje, the Titans may have to double their efforts if they are to pick maximum points. Ndejje have won their last three games including a 59-58 and 63-52 over title chasing City Oilers and Power respectively.Like I always say, Titans’ roster on paper, can beat up on anyone in the league but it depends which team shows up on court, as we have seen them score 100 points past UPDF, the same team that only managed 46 points against Sharing Youth.Comments last_img read more

Book

first_imgThe Discovery Institute in Seattle has published a new book, Darwinism, Design and Public Education, by John Angus Campbell and Stephen C. Meyer, encouraging schools to teach both sides of the controversy over Darwinism vs Intelligent Design.The Darwin Party’s spin doctoring that students should be protected from the controversy over Darwinism is unpopular and unsupportable, and should be exposed for what it is: political and religious bias.  If it were about science, well then, science thrives on controversy.  Science is about pitting evidence against evidence and logic against logic.  Wouldn’t that be a healthy science lesson?  Read this testimony and see what you think.(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img
