Sometimes I wonder if there isn’t someone or something somewhere out there trying to get me!! After all getting divorced and splitting the assets has been one financially depressing reality!
Yesterday, full of Christmas cheer and goodwill to all men (and women) our Directors announced a ‘consultation’ period on their proposal to close our Final Salary Pension Scheme.
Now anyone with more than one braincell can work out that the ‘consultation’ is purely a method of us airing our angst and that actually the whole deal is one which is ‘done’, ‘dusted’ and ‘in place’.
So I spent a
happy productive realistic time last night working out how this is going to effect me. And the net effect of this deliberation and reading of copious amounts of paperwork revealed I will be 20% worse off than I thought I would be in 4 years time when I’m due to retire.
Being financially secure (which I was 3 years ago) is swiftly becoming a dark and distant memory!
Hoorah!! Have a mince pie and a festive drink!
Just as well I’ve decided to train as a Life Coach. I knew I was going to need to boost my income when I retired. Now I’m going to have to!!
In fact perhaps I should set my goal to be the best Female Life Coach ever!! So I get masses of clients!!
No pressure then!!
