How are you people today? Excited about the MorodanShop? I knowww, I knowwww, I am too. Today I have another little thing I want to talk to you about. It’s called The Future. Yes, yes, me turning 30 got me thinking about the future. Well, actually the trigger was one of the birthday cards I received from one of my friends. It said “we’ll be the two little funny ladies in a nursing home in New York!”.
I thought it sounded hilarious, but then it got me thinking and I called my friend and asked her “how do you actually think to put this into practice?”. We live in Bucharest, darling! That’s a few thousands of kilometers far from New York. She sent me this link as a reply http://pensiopedia.ro/ . Have you seen the videos? My favorite is Delia Matache’s dream, she’s such a chic old lady in her new office.
Yes, an 80 year old lady with a job! Because sadly this is what most of us will have to do in order to afford a living when we retire. Face it, the public pension is not exactly enough for a decent living. Have even considered what job you would pick in you 70’s in order to have an extra income?
Do you imagine me posing all glamorous with an evening gown and high heels?
So I’ve been thinking about this private pension option ever since. Well, not with these words exactly (pension sounds.well.a little old ), but as an investment. An investment in my future. And trust me, future is not that far away #rememberIturned30andIthinklastmonthIwas15.
I’m sure most of you have already signed for a pillar 2 pension fund, but that’s only 10% of your pension contribution. The 3rd pillar, the voluntary pension, can make a bigger difference, because you can put aside up to 15% of your monthly income. A little help that the young you can give the old you for a carefree living at that moment in your life when you should enjoy the quiet moments, look back with pride and rest after many years of struggle, meetings, running from here to there, living constantly round the clock.
Have you seen those movies where elders go on cruises or visit the world? I have and I confess I would love to do this at least once thirty of forty years from now. And I plan to save as much money as I can now that this ING Pensii campaign has cought my attention.
I’ll leave you to it now. Remember a good investment is always better over the years. See you tomorrow.
